Hi - I need your help again. Bought this clock and can see no markings on it as to the maker, year or anything else. I have seen these clocks before, but would be nice to put a name to it. If you can help, it's much appreciated.
I also do not know how to set the alarm - I would like to make sure it is working as well. Can you help with that too?
As always - thank you all very much
Nancy

You set the time on the brass dial so that the desired time is under the
hour hand. Turn the brass dial clockwise and not counter clockwise
or you can damage the linkage.
Often, on older clocks, the dial is frozen and needs to be freed.
With the hour hand off the clock, turn the brass dial so 12 is up.
It should trip the alarm.

I'm betting that it is a New Haven cottage clock.
Its is, so far as can be seen, a New Haven 30-hour movement, and a cottage clock is a good guess - probably right. But better pictures of clock and movement would be needed to pin down the ID.

New Haven also used solid alarm discs (perhaps not exclusively) and I have a New Haven with this same style alarm disc. I've also seen this style alarm movement in a New Haven clock or two.

thank you all - funny, but I went to take another picture of the clock and the flash showed the inside back label. It is indeed a New Haven Cottage clock. Thanks all for the help - as usual you all are the best source of information.
