    J C BROWN, hanging by a thread

    This is an example of a J C Brown Sharp Gothic with all J C Brown marks, on the dial, movement and backboard label. This clock, obviously, has not run for many years. Notice the wood bracket that had been repaired decades ago with twine which has now disintegrated. The movement was "hanging by...

    1890s Torsion, Huber ?

    Attended an estate sale this morning which had over 20 clocks of various types - wall, mantel and 400day. Everything was overpriced, most everything had broken cases and non-original movements and still priced $350 - $500. A filthy 1950s kundo 400 day was priced at $135. Right next to it was...

    Reputation star ???? Why?

    A view: I had not noticed the STAR until Dan mentioned it. Why is this board getting more like a social networking site? We already socialize here in what I think is in a professional manner. There should not be a STAR to click on to get points for reputation and a place to evaluate that...

    There is always time for our pets.

    This is our 2 year old dog Gracie. She loves to fetch the newspaper and she lets us know when the mailtruck has arrived so she can help bring in the mail. She enjoys laying on the floor next to me when I'm in the "clock room". I'm sure she can hear the ticking a lot better than I can. Emit...

    Vincenti & Cie / Do we know who the statue and portraits represent?

    This Vincenti & Cie (Roux) french mantel clock (1855-1870) has a figure and two portraits. This is during Napoleon III 's reign 1852 - 1870. Is it know whom this figure and portraits represent? I think he may be an artist. Is that a painters pallet at the top of the clock below the portrait...

    Union Manufacturing Company _ OGEE Legacy

    This clock, made by the Union Manufacturing Company (1840s), was given to me by my brother. It was our Great Grandfather’s clock and most likely the first clock they purchased after settling in a small farming community in Maine in the 1830s. This clock was in the attic for at least 90 years...

    Waverly electro-clock, bakelite

    I purchased this Waverly ELECTRO-CLOCK at an Esate Sale this weekend. When I saw it I knew immediately that I had to have it. The case is really beautiful and the silvered dial is in excellent shap. The glass needs to be cleaned inside. I'm going to remove the cord for safety reasons. I do not...
