    German clock trademark

    Good afternoon, I have been repairing a cottage clock that has been in our family for over 100 years. I would love to know the maker but so far i cannot identify the trademark. Does anyone recognise it, please?

    Seth Thomas mantel clock glass picture

    Thanks for the reply. I wondered about that possibility myself but I checked and enclose a photo of the rear of the door. The picture does show it very well but it is perfectly smooth - no sign of anything being stuck on. As far as I can see, the picture belongs to that piece of glass. Still a...

    Seth Thomas mantel clock glass picture

    Hi, I have just bought another project clock as we are still ‘locked down’ in the UK and repairing clocks is a pleasant way to pass the time. The clock is an eight day Seth Thomas spring mantel clock with clock papers intact ( so that I know it’s not German) and has a fairly ornate case front...

    English Night clock information?

    Is anything known about the maker of this night clock? It is said to be American but it has no makers mark anywhere that I can see. I bought it recently despite the cracked glass dial as I was intrigued with it. There is one in Brooks Palmers ‘Treasury of American Clocks’ but it gives no...

    English Any information on a New Haven Clock Co ‘Gong’?

    Looking at the possibility of buying another clock as a restoration project. This one is on offer but I’ve never seen anything like it. It is big (40cm across) and has the label on the back which reads Gong New Haven Clock Co. It has a busted strike side spring but otherwise looks complete . It...

    English Correct hands on a Welch Spontini?

    Thank you guys - that’s a relief. Hands are so easy to damage when you have to set the time ‘from the front’ and I dread having to find the correct ones if they have been changed. Reference books on American clocks are thin on the ground over here and to get them sent from the US costs as much...

    English Correct hands on a Welch Spontini?

    Hi everyone I just bought a Spontini from a charity shop ( thrift shop in the US?) at a very reasonable price. It all looks very original, even down to what is probably the original key . I have never seen hands like this on any American clock - are they the correct ones?

    An aluminium front on a US Clock Co iron

    Do all the Muller castings have the model number and patent information under the bezel? I just removed the bezel and there is nothing there - just a plain flange. I am still very suspicious about the originality of the casting - I don’t think that it is aluminium , being too heavy( 2.5 kg) and...

    An aluminium front on a US Clock Co iron

    Yes , I remember reading somewhere that one of the Czars of Russia had a dinner service made of aluminium as it was the most precious metal at that time. Probably looked like something you might take on a picnic nowadays,

    An aluminium front on a US Clock Co iron

    Another related question - the centre of the clock face doesn’t look right - any ideas what should go there and what are the two holes in the centre disc for?

    An aluminium front on a US Clock Co iron

    Thanks very much everyone for all the information. I really thought this was a repro front as all my searching in the books that I could get hold of ( being stuck indoors) and online searching , only produced lots of iron cased clocks from multiple companies and retailers. I think everyone on...

    An aluminium front on a US Clock Co iron

    Is it because I’m on an iPad that the pictures won’t download? I have tried 3 times now but no pictures have appeared. ( Thanks for the advice everyone).
