    Help Identify a Cottage Clock

    I have a small cottage clock and am trying to identify the case. In its current form, the face and pendulum are replaced, the gong is Seth Thomas and the works are E. Ingraham. I suspect the case is ST but can’t find it in my books. If someone knows the maker, do you know which works and...

    Gustav Becker Mantle Clock Pendulum P14 Repair

    Thanks. I will do that. Until I fix the hand stopping as it begins the chime ready process, I cannot time out the clock because it will only run a few minutes until the hand stops.

    Gustav Becker Mantle Clock Pendulum P14 Repair

    It is the pendulum that was on it and I think I have seen this pendulum on other GB P14 works. Also, the top part of the case has a bottom in it which separates it from the long part of the case. Does anyone know for sure?

    I have what I call Gustav Becker "miniature grandfather" for lack of a better name. It has a Gustav Becker P14 chiming works, and there is every indication that the works are original to the clock. After cleaning in which I took out the springs but did not disassemble the time, strike, and chime...

    Waterbury Parlor Clock Identification

    Many thanks. I suspected there were two different Delhi models but did not have the second edition. Also figured they should be Roman numerals but wanted to be sure. NAWCC forum and the wonderful people on it are such a valuable resource.

    Waterbury Parlor Clock Identification

    I am trying to that this clock is a Waterbury Delhi and confirm that it should have a Roman rather than an Arabic dial. A paper on the back says Waterbury Delhi but the only Delhi in Tran’s Waterbury book is a black mantle. Can anyone confirm they made a parlor Delhi or has someone just put this...

    Jerome & Company 30-hour Steeple

    I recently acquired this Jerome & Co. Steeple and, not having many Jerome clocks, was wondering if anyone knew 1) whether this is likely the original Jerome movement, and 2) is the tablet is original or a replacement?

    Seth Thomas, Half Column, Weight Driven, Style 3

    Because one of these set on my parent's fireplace mantle and my father wound it every day as I grew up, it is the style to which I have the greatest sentimental attachment. I have several in good shape and several in that "I'll get to it one day maybe" category. I got my first one over 50 years...

    Dog On Good Gasoline

    Yes, I meant that the dial, not the tablet, was a replacement/reproduction. I am unsure whether the tablet was put on by a dealer in the product or whether this was a model put out by the clock maker. Any idea?

    Dog On Good Gasoline

    Two weeks ago I acquired a group of clocks including this grocery regulator with an unusual (to me at least) tablet advertising “Dog On Good Gasoline” “The Petroleum Products Co” “Kansas Made.” I located the previous existence of the company and the fact that there was one valuable gasoline pump...

    Jerome or New Haven Cottage

    I took a closer look at one of the cottage clocks in my collection and became curious about a couple of things. It is an 8-day that I bought many years ago and have never had apart. My questions are about the case, specifically the door and wooden tablet. 1) Has anyone seen what appears to be a...

    Clock Identification

    Thanks so much. Thoughts from Zedric and TicTocTime100 are consistent with my thoughts. I have asked for pictures of the works, back of face, pendulum, and weights. We will know for sure when I post those. Larry Hamby

    Clock Identification

    A friend asked me about this clock. I have never seen anything like it. I feel the case is very old but am unsure whether the case was made as a production clock or made by some cabinet maker to their own design. Likewise the dial is very unusual. I have not yet seen the works and will share...

    Seth Thomas Sonora Chimes

    Midenson, is your 8-bell Sonora a S/T clock or one put out by Sonora before they sold rights to S/T? If Sonora, is the works a New Haven with Sonora Clock Company stamped on it? I have one of the original Sonora clocks and am trying to work through some issues.
