• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    No melancholy here Clint. My daughter has a friend who formed a band in Baton Rouge, La., Sam Short. Here is Freight Train. If it doesn't make you want to jitter-bug or at least tap your toe, better call the undertaker. https://www.reverbnation.com/roebucks/song/5045997-freight-train

    Majolica Nouveau Clock - Who is the maker - where to find the inner clock part?

    The C. H. probably stands for Charles Hour of Paris. He registered the C.H. mark around 1900. In1927 he went into partnership with Lavigne to form Hour Lavigne. Your clock would probably fall in between these two dates. Some of the American clock makers who made Majolica clocks were New haven...

    S. LaRose sold these American style repo Asian clocks back in the 80's. All were 31day & hour and 1/2 strike. This style was offered in two sizes. The "Grand" 56 1/2 high and 22" wide for $195.00 and the "Baby Grand" 36 1/2" high and 14" wide for $99.50. My husband liked the big clocks so...

    Big Carved parcel gilt Mantel Clock - 18th century? Austrian? Info Welcome

    Just wondering if that filled in slot under the bottom could have been an opening for an attached music box. The Swiss and Germans do love their music boxes. I have several "Joker" musical alarm clocks with a slot like that cut in the bottom.

    Help with Identifying a French Mantle Clock

    I agree with JTD. The OP's clock isn't a silk thread suspension, not to me anyway as I have one. Would it be a tic-tac or a fixed pendulum according to the tooth span of the anchor?? Just curious.

    Daniel M. Weiss, RIP

    I haven't been on the message board in quite a few years, but checked occasionally about Dan. I am so sorry to read that he has passed on. I thought if anyone made lemon aide out of lemons, he did. In spite of his speech impediment and dropping out of school, he had a good job suited to him and...

    Christmas Gift

    The round stamp on the back of the movement does say Japy Freres and Medaille d' Honneur that he won in an exhibition in Paris in 1855 and used until 1858. Very pretty French clock. Missy

    So glad to hear he is alright, except for having to use a wheelchair. That's better than being in a nursing home. I'm so glad he has a nephew an niece to help him. Missy

    I am wondering if he got put in a rehab because his knees got so bad he couldn't get around. I remember a good while back he disappeared for a good while. He finally came back and said he had been in rehab and wasn't happy about it at all. He evidently isn't at home or he would have answered his...

    I found THIS on antiqueclockspriceguide. They attribute it to Bristol Brass and Clock Co. 1852. Bristol Brass and Clock Co. never manufactured clocks, only the mechanisms for them. They also made brass burners for lamps and later brass for autos. I read Waterbury also used this case. I couldn't...
