    I am trying to identify this New Haven Statue Clock I found today. Clock is in an overal good condition, appears all there with no broken or missing parts.
    Movement has been pulled and in stand ticking away.

    I would love to know the name of this clock so I can search by name for a good picture of it to use as an example
    to restore the finishes of the statue and clock body. I have search online, but did not find it using general searches for NH statue clocks.

    Your clock is called "Fame" from a 1900 catalogue as shown on page 129 of Tran Ly's 1997 book (ArlingtonBooks.com). Described as 8-day, half-hour strike on cathedral gong with Empire sash and ivorized porcelain 6 inch dial. 16" high x 20" wide. Finished in Gilt or bronze. Original priced at $22.25.

    Thanks Kyle for identifying this clock. Now armed with that info, maybe I can find a picture online of said clock to use as a reference point for restoration purposes.

    Thanks again!
