Picked up this Sessions along with a New Haven, any idea of the model and age, the finish was pretty beat up, stripped and refinished, old finish was like a Maple color stain, oiled movement works fine. The New Haven is a Tambour 16 any idea age of that. 0222211857_HDR.jpg 0222211857a_HDR.jpg 0222211857b_HDR.jpg 0222211857c_HDR.jpg 0222211858_Burst01.jpg

Hi,

Someone will no doubt be along with the exact model, but most of these Sessions Tambour clocks were made between the mid 1920’s and early 1930’s. Could you post pictures of the New Haven? It could well be from the same period.

Regards.

I thought it was in that time period, I found one that looks identical in a on line auction said it was a 1927, thought the decal inside the door would be a good indicator of its time. I'll post pics of New Haven, this seems to be a Franken clock, it has a Gilbert movement and dial in it. wasn't working cleaned and oiled it, messed around with escape wheel adjustment quite a bit, it's been running a day, 0224211457a_HDR.jpg 0224211457_HDR.jpg 0224211458_HDR.jpg 0224211458a_HDR.jpg 0224211502_HDR.jpg 0224211502a_HDR.jpg on the bench now, found a couple of these on line but none of the auctions gave a date , thought the tambour 16 would give a indication of date
