    Struggling to identify this Wall Clock

    Thanks Jessk09. I now have it working and am in the process of adjusting the timekeeping. Could you give me the clues that point you to that date range? Regards Ralph

    Struggling to identify this Wall Clock

    Thanks Uhralt. Your discovery that Blessing is the name of the carpenters shop sent me down another rabbit hole and I came across this snippet "Andreas Dilger, Gütenbach 1743-1818 credited with being the founder of the development of musical clocks worked with Martin Blessing, carpenter and...

    Struggling to identify this Wall Clock

    My research into this clock has produced nothing so any help would be appreciated. This is a chain/weight driven clock measuring about 10" x 10". There are no markings on the movement which has been built into a wooden frame. The marks on the reverse of the case are quite confusing. I cannot...

    New Haven Anglo American

    Just finished giving this a "wash and brush up". Having scoured the forums it seems to be an Anglo American with 8 day time & strike Newhaven movement. The only thing missing appears to be a mirror behind the pendulum bob. I love the marquetry. My guess to its date is circa 1890? Ralph

    Is this worth restoring?

    I was given this Waterbury for free by a friend clearing a house. Since it needs so many parts I was looking for advice as to whether it is worth restoring or is it too far gone and only useful for spare parts. As I see it, it needs various pendulum parts and weights. The case is OK and is 26...

    My GR

    Have not been able to find anything similar to my GR clock however I think its genuine. The serial number 84873 is on the movement, the hanging plate and the pendulum. Also on the back of the case is the GR logo and the number 13. Two questions, where would I obtain 3 finials for the bottom of...

    Correct date?

    Thanks Kurt. The logo is indeed from the date range 1914 - 1934 so I'll go with 1930! Clock keeps perfect time and the 3 rod chime is delicious.

    Correct date?

    Here is a recent auction buy which I think dates from 1927? Having read this thread, I think it is a German box clock from the Braunau factory, (no serial number), and since it does not have “SILESIA” under the GB anchor logo it is post-1926? The absence of a Junghans date stamp on the back...

    Hamburg American Clocks

    Picked this lovely clock up at a recent auction. It was cataloged as "German Mantel clock, circa 1900, with cream dial in walnut case, striking on a gong" Spent a couple of hours going through this forum but couldn't see anything similar, (especially the hands). Anyone have any information...
