I also have a Jerome & Co. ogee with Benham, printer. I think of it as early 1850's. With Jerome being involved in many different companies it may be that the particular Jerome company is a better clue than the Benham.
Pete, that's a good point. Benham printed labels for "Chauncey Jerome, Clockmaker", I believe, around 1845, which would predate the Jerome & Co. name. I would think 1850 would be a close date.
Jerome & Co is generally regarded as a trade name used by the New Haven Clock Co. The Benham label, with that address, post-dates the bankruptcy of the Jerome Manufacturing Co in 1856. For an excellent summary of Chauncey Jerome's career, see Chris Bailey's From Rags to Riches to Rags (NAWCC Bull. Supplement #15, Spring, 1986).
I'd be very interested in seeing images of your Gutierrez-labeled Jerome clock. Does the label state that the clock was made in New Haven or Bristol? Likewise with the movement (New Haven or Bristol?) Gutierrez appears to have printed the earliest New Haven clock labels for Jerome, and he may have printed Bristol clock labels (but I have yet to see one with his name on it). If your clock has a Bristol movement with a New Haven label, it probably dates to 1844.
Hi Jerome collector.Label says on it made in New Haven.Movement is maked as C Jerome.
Can i send pictures to your email adress?
I looked for info on this printer and i think he was the first printer at the New Haven location.
