    I have a weight driven alarm clock that I have tried to research and had no luck. It has wooden plates and a bell which sounds the alarm. The papers in the clock show LOVEJOY & CO., Clock Makers, Gap Road, WIMBELDON. Any info as to age of clock or when this company was in business would be appreciated. Thanks, Gary

    Hi Gary,
    You have a clock made in the Black Forest of Germany for the British market. This is the type commonly referred to as a postman's alarm. If the dial is wood it is likely to be around 1890-1900 but if it is glass it will be later - these clocks were made up to some time in the 1920's. I have seen [and have] several of these Lovejoy clocks, so they must have sold quite a lot of them. Lovejoy is just the seller of course but I don't know their dates of operation. Wimbledon is of course a London suburb, famous for tennis!
    Best wishes,
