I have this on the way so I don't have a pic or have been able to look at the movement. It was not advertised as a Don Juan I assumed until I started looking at the ansonia Don Juan which all have open escapements totally different dial.
Can anyone identify it without the one pic I need of the mark.
Just curious. Won't have it for a week or more

I think this is the Waterbury Vale, shown in Tran from the 1905 catalogue. Here is a link to a model as found on antiqueclocksprice guide.com

Here is another, though the cavalier is on the other side. Note, however, the dials on each.

When you get the clock itself, post some better pictures.
Thanks Steve, they are very similar figures. Do you know if this was Waterburys version of the Don Juan? From what I read ansonia is the one that comes up when you look up Don Juan.

I suppose the Vale could have been Waterbury’s Don Juan. I’m not sure of the significance of the name Vale. Perhaps another does. FWIW, New Haven also had a Don Juan figure clock.

I got it and it indeed is a Waterbury, pretty nice overall. Pretty dirty but all there and runs. Now to get a sword. Thanks for your help identifying it.
