    Needing Help Finding Eric Hansen (custom glass)

    The woman I spoke with on the phone at AA told me they may resume taking orders in the future, but right now they have a 4-6 month backlog.

    Needing Help Finding Eric Hansen (custom glass)

    I thought the same thing about the email so I tried it both ways. But the phone number Kurt posted worked.

    That worked. Thank you Kurt!

    Needing Help Finding Eric Hansen (custom glass)

    I Need to have 3 or 4 panels of glass remade for a few of my crystal regulator clocks. AA Glass Service in St. Petersburg, FL is no longer accepting orders. The only other place I know of that does this sort of work is Eric Hansen in Novato, California. I’ve been unsuccessful in reaching Mr...

    What Did this Dial Originally Look Like?

    Hey New2clock, I inserted a ”wink” emoji in my above reply, but I guess it didn’t take.

    What Did this Dial Originally Look Like?

    You taught me the difference between ”France” and “Made in France” a couple weeks ago. This clock is marked “Made in France.” Now, anyone know how to clean up this dial, and what it should look like when restored?

    What Did this Dial Originally Look Like?

    [Note: I posted this same thread in the restoration forum, but I thought it might also be appropriate to post here.] Hello all, My latest acquisition is a rather large, French crystal regulator (12.5" tall). The movement is marked "Made in France" so I guess it was made after around 1914. I...

    Does Anyone Recognize this Young Lady?

    Welp….I think that settles it. So my clock was most likely manufactured after 1891 (due to the movement‘s country of origin stamp) but before 1909 (due to the dial’s absence of country of origin stamp). Me thinks you aren’t really all that new2clocks. Thanks for the information everyone!

    Does Anyone Recognize this Young Lady?

    Here’s a shot of the back of the movement showing the “France” mark. Referencing the McKinley Tariff Act to aid in dating a clock is an interesting idea. But I can think of at least 2 additional issues that raises…. 1. Can we really safely assume clockmakers didn’t mark the nationalities of...

    Does Anyone Recognize this Young Lady?

    Hi All… I recently acquired a “new” crystal regulator with a French movement. Rather than the typical mercury pendulum, it came with a bob pendulum (which I believe is original to the clock). Regardless, the bob contains a picture of a woman. Does Anyone know who she is? Is she some historical...

    Can someone please tell me what I’ve got?

    Sorry for the confusion. The shiny double-ended key shown in the initial post goes with another nearby clock (Not pictured). I didn’t notice the key was even there when I was taking the pictures. The duller “mouse-eared” key (that‘s stamped “Made in England”) is the key that the seller...

    Can someone please tell me what I’ve got?

    ….And does anyone happen to who the lady is depicted on the pendulum? Can I tell my wife it’s supposed to be her? (She’s not really a fan of my clocks, so maybe that’d soften her up a bit.)

    Can someone please tell me what I’ve got?

    Here’s the key that came with it…..

    Can someone please tell me what I’ve got?

    Thanks, Mike! I really love the look of crystal regulator clocks—as long as they’re not too ornamental (and this one is almost borderline). Since it has a French movement, does that make it a French clock? The key it came with (which may or may not be its original key) says “Made in England.”...

    Can someone please tell me what I’ve got?

    Hi, I recently took a chance and bought a crystal regulator online based on some low quality pictures. I was pleasantly surprised once I got my hands on it. And after a few hours of case cleaning/polishing, the clock turned quite nice. With a slight adjustment to the crutch, it’s now running and...

    Tall case dial numbering error...or so I thought

    Thanks to everyone for their comments. I think Mr. Hutchins solved the mystery!

    Tall case dial numbering error...or so I thought

    The clock I own is the one with the plain white dial. As I recall, the back of the dial (or was it the movement?) is stamped “Birmingham” with no other identifying names. The other dial with the artwork is not mine, so I don’t know anything else about it. But here are pictures of the full dials....

    Tall case dial numbering error...or so I thought

    I have what I assume is a typical mid-19th century English tall case. The painted dial is a bit plain. But one of its quirks that I’ve always appreciated is the apparent error in the numbering of one of the painted-on minutes. As you can see from the attached photo, the minutes are sequentially...

    What period were brass weights used in 19th century tall clocks?

    So is it possible these brass cased weights are 17th or early 18th century? And I assume the clock they came in is English. Here's some more pics of it. - - - Updated - - -

    What period were brass weights used in 19th century tall clocks?

    By the way, one of my clocks came with the weights pictured below. It's entirely possible they aren't original, and maybe they aren't even solid brass--maybe just beat up cases (it's kind of hard to tell). But I like them.
