A family member was asking for info on this Waterbury clock. It came from Lacy’s garage when it was located on Main Street, Catskill, NY in the mid ‘50s.

Bases on some initial research, I’m guessing it’s a advertising item from the 1940’s. The only info on Two Star is that it may have been an antifreeze mfg. But I don’t know much else.

Jusr looking for age and if it has any value? They may repair it for their own use.

The box size is 30 1/4” tall
It’s 33” to the top of the decorative molding
Width 15 1/2”
Depth 5”
Dia of face 12”

Thank you!

Hello Peter,

You have enough of the original label there to pretty much tell you what you really need to know for online research.
You have a Waterbury "Pelican". Judging by the other examples found online it was quite popular as an advertising clock.
Here's just one of many to be found: Waterbury Clock Company Pelican Antique Clock. It looks like Willie's right on point with circa 1915.

Regards,

Bruce

Nice clock, worth restoring. Many clocks from this era dont have alot of value, where i live, i would value it around 100 dollars.

What a great piece of history - and a nice conversation piece. If you google "Two Star Radiator Solder clock" you'll find several similar clocks that have sold.
