    If such a thing exists, I've never seen it... a Gingerbread/Kitchen mantle clock that has a 30 hour movement with the 'alarm'. Did any of the American clock makers produce this combination?

    Thank you for your answer, Tinker Dwight.

    I should have been more explicit. Which American clockmakers or did all of the well known makers produce a 30 hour gingerbread type/kitchen clock with an alarm mechanism?

    I would think a search would show more. As noted, the 30 hour usually
    have closer winding holes and the 8 day are out near or in the numbers.
    30 hour clocks were usually the cheapest and the alarm was an extra
    cost. I suppose the alarm was offered on all models but not likely used
    on the cheapest models.
    I'd have to go look but I think I've seen the hole in the plate of some
    30 hour clocks for the alarm lever, with no lever attached.
    One might take a look at some front plates.
