    German "Art Deco" Westminster Clock ID.

    Thanks Peter and Justin for your replies. I Googled Haller and found the same movement with the square star pendulum. It looks like some models had a lever to disable the chimes, but this one doesn't and there is no slot in the dial for one to poke through. Cheers Greg

    German "Art Deco" Westminster Clock ID.

    This clock has "Made in Germany" written on the bottom of the dial. It has "U T" stamped on one side of the bottom of the back plate and it has 12cm above a line and 190.66 below the same line. Does anyone know who manufactured or sold it?

    Ansonia Clock by Ansonia Brass Company

    Hi all, I wonder if anyone knows any more about this clock. It was made by the Ansonia Brass Company which would date it 1854 - 1869. I can't seem to see any info by browsing the web. Does anyone have a more accurate date. Was it made as a ships clock or just a wall clock. Did They have model...

    That being the case then Steven T has ID'd it as a "Danube". The only difference is the plinth has a cutaway in the middle. Thanks all. Cheers GN

    Mantle Clock ID

    Thanks to all who replied. Your assistance is appreciated. I did hunt through lists of New Haven clocks but didn't actually see that exact style anywhere. There was one where the case looked identical, but with a different pendulum and glass. You've nailed it closely to around mid 1880's I...

    Sessions Banjo Clock Black Americana

    IMHO, The pictures are depiction of the old "Sing a song of sixpence" nursery rhyme. The words have been changed, but still fit the tune. The picture at the bottom is of four of the four and twenty (inappropriate term) that were baked in the pie. The top pix is of the cook baking the pie. Then...

    Mantle Clock ID

    G'Day all, Can anyone assist with identifying this clock. I have attached some photos to assist. There are no markings on the case. The movement looks like its missing a main spring and the green drips indicate that its had the CRC treatment. The pendulum looks like it had a pointer on it which...

    Point taken, I was more interested in the photo than the actual auction. I'll remember the protocol next time. When all else fails, read the label! late 1800's as it says. Thanks for all your help and info, much appreciated. Cheers Greg

    Black mantle ID

    Thanks again for all the replies, Any idea of the date of manufacture? I find it an interesting clock. Here's another one on ePay, same case, but two wind holes, one for a strike train, I should imagine. Were the "Fleur de Lys" hands a french thing or just a style used by lots of clockmakers...

    Black mantle ID

    Hi All Here are some more pictues of this clock. The movement is held in by two straps that extend from the movement to the back of the case. The numbers on the left are "22" I think. The numbers on the bottom are "48". The diameter across the glass is 112mm (about 4"). The white chapter ring...
