    Herschede - Pattern No. 146

    Thanks! I haven't seen the clock for two years--it's divided between a refinisher who is going to revive the old finish and a clock maker for restoration of the movement. I'm anxious to have it back someday. This Winterhalder and Hofmeier movement is certainly larger than the Herschede...

    Lenzkirch spring wall clock, oak fretwork case, circa 1880

    Steve, Thanks for your post! Four thousand different examples; normally I would've liked those odds! George Everett hasn't seen another like it either. In his book there are several illustrations from the 1892 catalog. None are exactly like this one. Several have similar broken front pediments...

    Lenzkirch spring wall clock, oak fretwork case, circa 1880

    My most recent purchase is a Lenzkirch wall clock with a spring movement. Based upon the table by George Everett, the serial number places this movement to circa 1880. I have not found this model depicted in catalogs, books or on the internet. If anyone has a photograph or catalog illustration...

    Herschede - Pattern No. 146

    Thanks for your comment. I knew the Mercury compensating pendulum was an accessory and, consequently, unusual. The clock must fall about 1910 as that is about the time Herschede started calling them "Crown Hall Clocks." It has Herschede's crown trademark on a small spandrel centered just under...

    Herschede - Pattern No. 146

    My wife's Christmas present to me was this Herschede Hall Clock, Pattern No. 146, in Mahogany. It has a Winterhalder and Hofmeier 9 tube movement and is fitted with Herschede's ornate three vial mercurial pendulum. The clock is in unmolested original, running, condition. It's 99 inches high, 29...

    Heavy slate clock

    This is very similar to an Ansonia clock I have. I have not seen a catalog illustration for this clock. There are subtile differences in the case and caryatid style ornaments on either side of the dial. One difference is that my clock has a rectangular piece on the side placed upon the round...
