Hello,
I recently purchased a Ridgeway Curio Grandfather clock from an estate sale but I don't know what model it is. It has broken glass on the upper area and was trying to find the model to try and order a replacement. All I found was the serial number and some information behind the clock itself. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Below is the information I have. I can't seem to find anything with this information.

Serial Number: 91015335

From the back of the clock:
Dial: JT
Model: 9050
Mvmt: CC
Finish: Whch/B2
Setup: 072891

Can you contact Ridgeway to ask? I've never tried contacting them, but it may be worth a try. Good luck!
I tried to contact Ridgeway but they have been bought out by Howard Miller and when I contact them, they say they can't help unless they have a serial number and a model number. I have them all this information And they say they don't pull anything up and need a valid model number.

Wow. It certainly looks like you have that information. Not sure what your alternatives might be other than having glass cut to fit by a glass shop. Maybe others will have suggestions.

Hello, NM Desert 505 (Hey, I'm from New Mexico, too!) (Raton, up in the northeast corner). (Haven't lived there for decades, though).

Anyway, sorry, I don't have any help for you. Just thought I'd chime in and say "nice clock." I have several Ridgeway catalogs, but am not finding your model of clock in any of the catalogs. (My catalogs are sporadic--1967, 1972, 1977, 1980, and 1997, and so there are a lot of years missing). The serial number of your clock indicates it was manufactured in 1991, so that particular model may have been discontinued by the time of my 1997 catalog.

For what it's worth, whenever I've needed glass for clocks in the past, I've never dealt with clock companies. I just went and had it made from a local glass company. I do see that the piece you need is an unusual shape, however. Are you able to remove the identical piece from the opposite side? If so, I'd remove that one and take it to a glass place and ask them to make an exact copy. Just my suggestion.

Good luck!
John
