    I have a Sessions clock and was wondering the model name and year made. It has a bell 1/2 hour strike and gong hour strike. It is shown below. At first I found it was a Wagner model from 1923. However, other information said Mozart. What is your opinion?

    The Wagner had different side handles although it shares the same cast sculptures as your clock. I believe your clock is the 'Mozart'.

    Thanks CCF for your input. I did notice variations, but didn't know if the same model had variations or if they had a different model name for each variation. I assume the Mozart is from the same time era, correct?

    Same time period, early 20th century. The black mantel clocks were very popular in America up to the 1920's, only being superseded by the more modern tambour.
    Clocks tended to have topical names with Wagner and Mozart being named after composers.

    Don't know if you already got your answer, it is a Sessions Mozart - 1923 Page 148 #328 Trans Session Book
