    Hi y'all. I acquired this grandfather clock a few days back. I've come across an ad from 1918 from Colonial Mfg Co with a picture of this clock but I haven't found anything else. Any information would be amazing.

    Information in the pictures I've added is as follows:
    *On the front*
    Colonial Mfg Co of Zeeland, Mich, USA

    *On the back*
    Pat'd Jan 12 '09
    Colonial Mfg Co

    *Inside on a sticker*
    Larry Haynes

    *Another sticker inside*
    Sal Molina
    Call 635-2239

    And currently in another room where I'm unable to enter is the back piece with the four numbers 1293 painted on it.

    Welcome to the NAWCC's Message Board Eamarat.
    You have acquired a Colonial Model No. 1293 from circa 1920.
    The case is made of Hand Carved solid Honduras Mahogany. It was offered with their movement 68 (5 tubular bells) or 88 (7 tubular bells). The model can be found on page 91 of Tran Duy Ly's book on Longcase Clocks and Standing Regulators.
    A very nice manufactured clock (in my opinion).
    Are you a Collector?

    I'm not a collector of clocks (although I may become one soon the way it's looking) but I am a collector of historical items in general. Thank you for your help! I'm in love with it already and can't wait to begin bringing it back to life.
