Does anyone out there own a "Foreign Clock Book #3 or #5, by Roy Ehrhardt? I am looking for a clock that is believed to be by a Japanese clock maker. I have a #4 book but there are no Japanese clocks in it. They are all in #3 & #5. If you have one or both of these books, maybe you could look up my clock maker for me. The clock I am looking for is a "Gallery" style, with the trade mark of the letter (S), inside a circle which is about 3/4" in diameter, with diagonal lines running through the (S), and a solid black (A) painted over the (S). The word "Trade", is painted on the left side of the circle and the word "Mark" is painted on the right side of the circle. I think it could possibly be made by "Jyujishirushi Clocks or possibly Seikosha Clocks, both of Japan. I have found that both of these clock companies were involved with the American Ansonia Clock Co. in ventures involving import and export of clocks, both ways. My clock has a movement that is identical to the late 1800's New York Ansonia movement, except it does not strike on the half hour as most all of the Japanese clocks do not. Thanks for your help,
