    Unusual Wooden Works Clock

    I don't know that either. This clock seems to have a lot more questions than answers. I have more to do to try and connect the alarm. I am guessing that the lever may connect to the alarm.

    Unusual Wooden Works Clock

    Here are a few more pics. The first pic is the gear right behind the dial. What could the carvings under the gears be for? The second Pic shows part of the strike mechanism. The 3rd pic shows the alarm and the 4th pic kind of shows the hammers that strike for the alarm.

    Unusual Wooden Works Clock

    Hi Jim, thanks for writing, I appreciate your help. I was wondering if there was a Harrison connection as I saw clock pics on the internet with a similar striking mechanism. I was wondering if it might have been an early experimental piece. I have not seen many wooden works clocks, it was the...

    New Verge and Foliot Tower Clock

    I got an email from my restorer in Germany. Last fall we loaded a Dutch tower clock that dates to about 1450 that weighs about 400 lbs. up a flight of narrow staIrs. We were lucky it didn't slide down and kill someone. He decided to sell and gave me first option. I now have one more tower...

    Hi, I can tell you that it took 4 big guys to transport just the movement. It will be a big job to set up. Have you tried looking on German Ebay? I buy a lot of stuff there. Search turnuhr. You will see motion works for sale. They will be called winkelwerke or ziegerwerke. The tower clock...

    Niagara Parks Floral Clock, Canada

    We were there in the late fall of 2007. What a great time to go, no crowds. You have to experience the falls from the Maid of the Mist!

    The second clock pictured is late 14th early 15th century French. It had to have some restoration as a few pieces were missing. My restorer is well connected in Europe and was able to trade parts needed with several museums. The piece is now complete with period replacements. I found a 14th...

    Thank you, I have been a member for many years and never had time to do much. I started purchasing a little of everything, then got fascinated by early foliot and crown wheel escapements. I have started purchasing smaller foliot clocks as they are a little more available. I'll post some...

    Tower Clock Collector New To Forum

    Hi, I've collected clocks more years than I care to admit. Before retiring I spent 14 years in Europe. There I saw my first tower clock for sale and was hooked. Next year I hope to move the greater part of my collection from Germany to Washington. It will be nice to have them in one place...
