    HI GUY,
    I KNOW THIS ISN'T HELPFUL, BUT I CAN'T HELP MYSELF.
    I THINK IF YOU SUBTACTED EBBETS FIELD FROM THE OLD POLO GROUNDS, YOU WOULD BE IN THE RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD.

  2. William Gilbert lived from 1806-1890. There is no Gilbert clock from 1807; though some dials on Gilbert Clocks show this year, it is not indicative of the production year. It would be more accurate to say clocks were produced on the Gilbert site since 1807 because that is when the earliest clock was produced there - still they were not Gilbert Clocks. The William L. Gilbert Clock Company actually dates from July, 1871.

    Cordially,
    Carl

    Has anybody advised you that there is no such thing as an authentic 1807 William Gilbert mantle clock? In 1807 William Gilbert was probably still in three cornered pants or maybe not even around yet. (No, I did not bother to look it up.)

    I have one with the same label. I always considered it the model.
