    French clock identification

    It looks like spray paint from the picture. An easy way to tell is with acetone or nail polish remover or paint remover. Neither will remove gold guilt or plating but they will remove paint.

    Japy Freres pendulum sizing

    It uses a standard French pendulum and the distance from the bending point of the suspension spring to the center of the bob is 126mm. That's what the 4 & the 8 tell me.

    Colonial Mfg Co 75897

    There should be a model number on the back of the clock (hopefully legible). That and pictures would go a long way in dating it. Colonial only made cases and bought movements from Winterhalder, Hans Winterhalder, (HWN) and a few from American manufacturers.

    King Arthur's Grandfather Clock Identification

    I don't believe the two were affiliated. King Arthur manufactured cases and sold complete clocks. The cases are much better quality than any of the Emperor cases I've seen. Mine has a Hermle 3 chime movement.

    1920's Urgos Hall Clock

    I just brought this home, and I believe the entire clock is by Urgos in the 1920's/30's. It's only 6'2" tall.

    Colonial 1482, No. 53 Movement

    In case someone stumbles across this post and has the burning need to know, this movement is a Winterhalder movement as evidenced by the drawings in Conover's Chime Clock Repair book as well as the movement sprawled out on my work bench, not to mention the logos on the ends of the chains. Mark
