    I have a Revere Electric Hall Clock, model ORNE. Don't have any idea when it was made.
    I have searched everywhere to get information. Here is the problem, I took the movement to a clock repair shop awhile ago and he said it would be several months before it could be repaired and he would call. Well you guessed it, he died and all the clocks and parts disappeared. Sooo.
    I don't even know what movement i am looking for. I have read so many things about Telechron, GE, Herschede, Revere electric clocks but nothing about my clock. Found some that look the same but they have fancy doors where mine is plain. It has a 19 and a 553 stamped into the wood. I have attached some pictures of what I have. Can antone help.
    Thanks View attachment 334522 View attachment 334526 View attachment 334528 View attachment 334529 View attachment 334530

    cars,
    Your clock parts didn't automaticly become part of the deceased estate. I would check further into exactly what happened to your clock parts. They may be stashed somewhere or on the shelf down at the local Goodwill store. Good luck, Willie X

    to track down where your mechanism went.
    Hope it is in storage somewhere. Maybe relatives have it or knowhere. Call his competitors.

    I verified with the property owner he was renting from. They tried to find relatives with no luck so he had the store cleaned out. I have been trying gor over a year to track down any leads. Store next door verified a dump container was used to clean store.
    I am now interested in identifying the movement and face so I know what I am look bill misc 245 (424x640).jpg bill misc 243.jpg bill misc 244.jpg bill misc 246 (424x640).jpg bill misc 247 (640x424).jpg

    It sounds like you might have a case against the landlord
    for lost value. I suspect the repair guy did have a log book
    or something with names and contacts for items.
    My guess is that your movement has been sent to a scrap
    metal business.
