I have a Barnes and Bartholomew wooden works clock that runs good. Anyhow, I saw my brother's clock was running and...

    Identify friend's Seth Thomas please

    My friend has this nice Seth Thomas clock hanging in his kitchen. It came out of his church. Can anyone tell me more about it, like the approximate build date (I did not take it off the wall so I did not look inside to look for a date) Thank you.

    Age of tall case clock

    HI guys. Can someone tell me the approximate age of this tall case clock. A dear widowed friend has sold her house and her son got the clock. I never took pictures of it while in her house so I had to take pics of it in a climate controlled storage shed. It is about 9 feet tall. Thank you. Abe

    Barnes and Bartholomew just stopped working

    I have a Barnes and Bartholomew wooden works 30 hour clock. Last fall it was repaired by a member of NAWCC that lives near me. It ran well and kept good time. Then it stopped.
