    Greetings all,

    This is the last of the three clocks from today.

    It is a Brewster & Co. 15" , 30 hour steeple. (Elisha C. Brewster, Bristol CN, 1840-43. The last picture has a clock key placed against the movement to show how small it is. It's about 3" high, winds at 11 O'clock. The minute hand is missing but I will find one.

    Best,

    Richard T.

    Interesting steeple and interesting movement. I am struck by the resemblances of the movement, with a due nod to the differences, to the movement in this thread.

    Hi Steven,

    Thanks. I had read that thread when it was posted but didn't recall it. The movements are VERY similar.

    Best,

    Nice catch of the day those 3 clocks.

    I'm especially taken by the Brewster and Co. miniature steeple timepiece.

    Re: movement, A. Lee Smith wrote a great article about 30 hour cottage clock movements, with subsequent updates. You can see the original article by clicking here . A very good reference that I have found myself going back to repeatedly over the years. You may find your movement in there.
