Well, we don't have a parlor, but we did find a place for it. Actually, I'm looking for the complete name. As often happens with Welch clocks of this era (1880's, I suspect), the labels on the back are mostly gone. In fact, only part of one survives, and that enough to make out part of the name (at least I'm assuming it is only part, there seems to have been space enough for more letters). What I can read is "DEX." Anyone have a clue, or, even better, Tran's Welch book (hoping it is in there). I can't tell if this one was supposed to be ebonized or is just darkened through age or someone's misguided process. I would have thought it a walnut, but on the base what appears to have been possibly the original finish shows through, and that looks a bit like rosewood. It would not photograph to my satisfaction.
