    Found this at the bottom of a box of old clocks from a garage. It is in pretty bad shape. All the wires are barely attached and definitely need to be replaced. Before I go any further with trying to resurrect it I thought I would reach out to someone who might know something about it.

    Attached are 2 pictures, first is the face of the clock, the second is a picture of the battery carriage from within the base. Really sorta weird.

    Date specified on the fave says 1904 Says Tiffany never - wind, Buffalo N.Y. USA Pat, Mar 8, 1904

    I doubt it is a "real" Tiffany but if it is I will devote a lot of time trying to restore it. Sorry for no other pictures but it is in pieces..... if I do decide to got further I am going to have to find a wiring and adjustment diagram.... or docs or something.

    Thanks for any help. Pretty sure it will head for the dumpster though.

    It is a "real" Tiffany, just not a Tiffany & Co. George Steele Tiffany patented his electric clock in 1904 and was promptly sued by Tiffany & Co. because he used his own name, their trademark, for his company. He lost.

    There are several posts and wiring diagrams on the message board. Here is mine:

    Good parts for these can be hard to find, so please don't throw it out.
