    I HAVE SEEN A FEW REFERENCES TO A LINCOLD CLOCK COMPANY - PRODUXING ELECTRIC CLOCKS IN THE EARLY 1900s.
    IS THERE A PLACE I CAN RESEARCH THIS COMPANY'S HISTORY? :confused:

    Hi Ivan. If you are an NAWCC member, you could use their research facilities. It is not a company that I am familiar with. How is your research on the James Remind-o-timers coming? Harold

    Found amongst my "junk" a circa 1930 bakelite so-called "cathedral" style "Lincoln" synchronous electric clock with "ELECTRIC CLOCK CORP. OF AMERICA, CHICAGO" at the bottom of the dial, plus a nearly identical "Royal" which appears to have been made by the same manufacturer. Both are rather cheaply made and NOT self-starting. Don't think these are too rare-- if you keep checking ebaY you are bound to find other examples pictured.

    I have seen many "Lincoln" electrics over the years and all have been of the kind Jeff described, sort of generic cathedral-shaped non-self starting bakelite clocks with round dials, of the kind that were made in the early 30s. They seem reliable, as many do still run after 75 years, but not at all rare. Some other makers made the same or nearly the same style.
