    Not knowing any better, I'd expect the pendulum shaft to be the same color as the metal of the face or a wood shaft the same color as the clock.

    Re: Nice!

    I've merged the two threads on this clock. Easier to follow that way.

    Thanks Steve,

    I noticed that Kroeber category had not been used in quite some time, so I posted on both threads!

    Hi Les,

    Beautiful clock!

    I checked in my Kroeber book. The picture shows a fancy glass pendulum, but next to it is a Regulator 43 with a similar plain pendulum to your's.

    The style may be correct, but I agree with Robert that it probably would have matched the metal on the dial pan.




    “The pictures posted below are fig. 263 and 264 on page 115 in Tran Duy Ly’s Kroeber Clocks from arlingtonbooks.com.”

    These permanent threads are not very active. I suspect most folks do no know they are there or have forgotten.

    FWIW, Tran's Kroeber book shows the No. 44 with a different pendulum, one like this, with a longer rod, of course. [​IMG]

    He does show what might be the same pendulum on the No. 43. The rod is black, but since the catalogue picture is B&W, little help for the color of the bob. Also not much help on the size, because the 43 is a larger clock (43" high vs. 30" for the 44). Antiqueclockspriceguide.com shows a few Kroeber regulators with essentially the same pendulum as on yours, like this No. 45. I suspect they came with more than one style pendulum. Perhaps one could choose what pendulum he wanted with the clock.

    Here is a Kroeber 46 pendulum which I believe to be original to the Kroeber signed movement.

    The bob is approximately 3 5/8" in diameter.

    The face is NOT original, in fact, it is a Waterbury, so ignore it.:
