    American So, what does one find at local chapter meetings in Houston?

    Lucky you. Our local chapter meetings are slim pickings for the most part. I have a standing joke that to make a sale at a meeting, I'd have to buy something from myself.

    Waterbury Regulator #20, early version, c. 1893

    I was going to respond, then noticed the original post was 15 years ago. Wonder if he ever located the correct weights?

    Antebellum Shelf Clock Making

    I was thinking about ordering this from the NAWCC store. Does it contain a lot of information or is it more of a coffee table type book? I love seeing pictures of clocks. Would like information on makers and their histories to be included. Has this been reviewed in the Bulletin? Thank you, Chris

    No offense taken. I actually search the Bulletin often. I have close to a full set (singles and bound) and prefer to thumb through those after I get a hit on a search vs using the online copies. That said, there's not a ton of info on Henry Hart. Like Steven said above, I just assumed & Son...

    Henry Hart, Goshen Connecticut

    Picked this up back in late January. It appeared to be in overall good condition. What really sold me on this was the glass.

    Help Identify a Clock

    The older Horolovar reproductions are good quality. Can't say much about the later ones out of China by ProClocks. Doubt they are as good.

    Willard?

    Though Durfee used Waltham movements, didn't they die stamp and number all their movements.

    MOP Cast Iron Front Movement ID

    Interesting that the movement in the early Brewster steeple is basically the same movement that is in mine except how the plates are held together. Did Brewster use Jerome movements?

    MOP Cast Iron Front Movement ID

    I knew it would be tough to figure out who actually assembled this. I was hoping someone owned one, or have seen one with a label. Would late 1850s seem about right for a date range?

    MOP Cast Iron Front Movement ID

    Yes, it’s an iron front. New Haven would make sense. I didn’t even consider Kroeber. I’ll take a look in Tran’s Kroeber book.
