    Thanks for the notes. It is a beautifully made clock. I imagine he has passed away by now.

    George deFore tall case reproduction

    Recently got a tall case GF clock made by George deFore in Fish Creek, Wisconsin. Seems he specialized in authentic hand made recreations of early American time pieces. I can't seem to find anything else about him. Wonder if anyone here has heard of him. Thanks.

    Gilbert rachet and gear

    I just got a Gilbert Concord #3 "gingerbread" clock with alarm. It runs well but the rachet spring on the time main spring is broken and the gear the rachet catches is also missing some teeth. Obviously it can't be wound normally. My clock repairman says the only real answer would be to find...

    English Small World Rhythm

    Anyone familiar with these quartz clocks that have a music box disc that plays on the hour? Just picked one up for next to nothing and in checking eBay find the few listed are around $200-300 and new wee $599. It works perfectly but hard to find any additional discs (look like small Regina discs).

    Gustav Becker hall clock

    Had a couple of Howard Miller weights-about 8.2lbs-and tried them and they seem to work perfectly, plus I got a pendulum and bob from Timesavers and finally got it cut to the right length. Movement is pretty clean so oiled it and it is running perfectly. The two sets of strike rods sound really...

    Gustav Becker hall clock

    Just got a Becker hall (floor) clock. Just two chains and the weights are missing. Is there a standard weight for the weights? I have two 7 pound weights and am hoping they will do. Haven't got the clock yet but will have more info on the movement in a day or two. The clock case appears to date...

    Mystery Clock Resurrection

    I have the exact same clock except it also has a calendar (date) hand which works. Mine was also pretty much in pieces--the door assembly ( the glass is stenciled Regulator) was completely apart. I am missing the two lower finials. Are you sure it's Japanese? I never would have guessed that.

    Mauthe closed well wall clock

    You can't see it in the photo because it's just clear glass, but the part of the pendulum bob that you see with the door closed is in the area that is "S" shaped to fit the curve of that lower section of the case. It does have Westminster chime. All the ones I have seen pictures of are the same...

    Mauthe closed well wall clock

    Thanks for the comments. I did find a few on eBay and that's where I saw the name "closed well" as the bottom part is enclosed by an "s" shaped glass cover. Again, I'm assuming it's very late thirties or late forties.

    Giant Table or Pedestal Clock? Please help to identify...

    It originally had a pedestal on which it sat. It is Japanese and, from what I understand, still sold today. Probably Mid century or newer. I have a complete one.

    Has anyone seen one like this? Clock Table?

    Just got one like it too, actually identical. It is Japanese. Runs quite well.

    3 new acquisitions yesterday

    The globe clock is 1939 world's fair model. (At least that's the info I have found) I have one just like it.
