seeking help on identifying an old hand made skeleton clock. It looks to be from a religous order , possible monks or similar, has crosses at the top, also fusee movement. I will try to post a picture, but if anyone has come across any old skeleton clocks and can give me a thread or any help, will be much appreciated.... Bill Buss

Bill, I can't help directly, however if you will click "search" at the top of the board and enter skeleton you will find 21 pages of hits on that word. Use all forums and use the search box "content criteria". Enter the word skeleton in the box marked "At least having".

Someone may be along with direct information for you and save a lot of looking, but here at least is a place to start.

Bill,

Many skeleton clocks were representations of churches, so the crosses at the top may not have any particular significance as far as a religious order association is concerned.

Here is a picture of a 4 Plate York Minster Architectural Skeleton clock.

The classic book is Royer Collard Skeleton clocks.

Derek Roberts has two books (at least) for skeleton clocks. Any of those books will have images of the Architectural form of Skeleton clocks.
