    I found this baby online the other day. Second one I got for cheap. I paid $120.00 or so. It should be a fun project getting it running and chiming again. Anyone know what model and year this is?

    When I saw the first pic I was kind of like.... 150 for this? .... but then the second pic shows nested bells. kinda like all business in the front and party in the back.

    I assume Westminster?

    It is a Sonora Chime, Westminster chime on 4 bells. They usually go for $500+++

    Your clock appears to be the S/T Sonora Chime Clock No. 5 pictured from a 1914 catalogue as it appears on Pg 152 of Tran Ly's 3rd edition (Arlington Books.com). Described as mahogany adamantine caps and columns with black lines in the columns; Westminster quarter-hour chime on 4-bells; Convex glass; 5-inch silvered dial; gold plated sash, mat and feet. Height is 14 inches. Watch out for the no. 90 chime movement spring - it bites hard!!
