8004   Seth Thomas 8 day wood works clock.

This clock has a nicely refinished solid mahogany case which is in great condition. There is only one tiny veneer chip on the upper left corner. The columns are tiger maple and they make for a good visual contrast with the darker mahogany. The carved paw feet and fruit basket crest are perfect without any chips.

The lower glass has a very well done signed replacement reverse painting. The upper glass is original. The two brass escutcheons are old replacements. It has the original hands, compound pulleys and pendulum while the weights are replacements. The dial is in very good condition without any paint lifting.

The brass bushed eight day wood works movement is complete and I did not see any chipped teeth on either gear train. Finger pressure on the gear trains demonstrates that the movement is ticking and striking properly. It does have wire cable for the weights and that should be changed. Also, the hour hand needs repair because it is loose on the square posted hour shaft. 37 inches tall.        SOLD

8005   George Marsh, Farmington, Connecticut
eight day wood works clock.

This mahogany case has been nicely refinished and has only one small veneer chip at the lower left corner. The columns and fruit basket top are very well carved and without any chips at all. This model never had feet. The dial is in good condition with just one small touched up area around the center arbor.

The upper glass is original while the lower glass is a replacement. The label is slightly dark but it is complete and legible. It retains the original hands, pendulum, key and compounded pulleys. The escutcheons are ivory, one of which is chipped. I did not get weights with this clock but they are readily available through Merritts or Timesavers.

The ivory bushed wood movement seems to be complete. I did not see any chipped teeth on the time train while the strike train has a new ratchet gear but that seems to be functional. With a bit of finger pressure on the trains they both operate properly.

38 ½ inches tall.        $425.

8025  Henry Sperry grain painted cottage clock.

 This is just like the clock mentioned earlier. The case for this one is even cleaner than the other and the rosewood graining is very vibrant. The glass in the door is the original but the decoration at the bottom is a later replacement done on paper that has been pasted behind the glass.

The painted dial is the original but you can see that the signature is rather faint and there is a scratch in the 11 o’clock area. The hands, pendulum and key are the originals. There is a nice green label on the interior.

This clock has the same 30 hour upside down movement as mentioned for the previous clock and it is also running.

12 inches tall.       $175.

8028   Waterbury cottage clock.

This clock needs a bit of restoration but it is priced accordingly. The mahogany and rosewood case is in good condition but the door has been repainted gold. It appears to have the original mirror in the lower panel. The lower section of the dial has been rather poorly touched up.

It has the original hands, pendulum and key. There are remnants of the label on the back.

This is a 30 hour clock with hourly strike and it is running but note that the strike mainspring is missing.

11 inches tall.         $45.

8020   Fine Chauncey Boardman fusee steeple clock.

If you have been building your collection based on quality rather than quantity, then this clock may be for you. It is about as original and unblemished as you will be able to find. The mahogany case has the original finish and I could not find even one veneer sliver. Both finial tips are perfect and that is quite a rarity.

The reverse decorated tablet is from a stencil used by William Fenn who is well noted for this type of work in the 1850s. There is a small amount of paint loss around the border but overall it is very good. There is an excellent blue-green label which is very legible. The painted dial is the original and any paint losses have been expertly touched up. This clock retains the original hands, pendulum and key.

This is a 30 hour clock which strikes the hours on a coiled gong. The movement is signed “C. Boardman, Bristol, Con. U.S.A.  Patented Jan. 1847.” This clock had been running well for me for several months but the cord on the time side just broke so that needs to be attended to.

Again, if you are looking for only choice examples, you will not be disappointed with this clock.

20 inches tall.    $375.

8022   Waterbury “Large Gothic V.P.” steeple clock.

This clock has a mahogany case which is very clean and refinished but note that the front edge of the base has had the veneer removed and has been colored to match. You actually need to look quite closely to see that this has been done. I believe the finials are replacements.

It has the original glass with a gilt frame around the door interior. There is an excellent signed dial and a fancy brass pendulum with a cut glass center. The hands have been replaced.

This is an eight-day clock with hourly strike on a brass bell and it seems to be in good running order.

19 ½ inches tall.      $110.

4011   Waterbury miniature ogee clock.

This mahogany case is actually in pretty good condition but for a couple of veneer chips on the door edge. It has the original finish which someone has polished but it would look much better with some cleaning and then another coat of polish.

It has the original signed painted dial which does show a bit of wear from when the clock was wound. The original reverse painted tablet has a good amount of flaking and there is no label. The hands and the pendulum are the originals.

This is a 30 hour clock which strikes the hours on a gong and it is running.

19 inches tall.   $60

4015   Atkins Clock Co. steeple clock.

You do not usually see steeple clocks by this maker who is normally associated with earlier style cases. This mahogany case has the original finish and it is very clean but it might need a bit of attention. The inside of the lower left of the door has come apart and there is a piece missing. It has been glued back together and it is stable so it could be used just as it is. There are a couple small veneer chips on the corners.

The painted zinc dial has some flaking around the center arbor and the silverfish have eaten away the plain part of the label while leaving the printed portion. The reverse painted glass is the original but the background painting around the corners has been scraped away.

This is a 30 hour clock with hourly strike. It has the original hands and pendulum and it is running.

20 inches tall.      $65.

6021   Seth Thomas eight day miniature ogee.

Seth Thomas eight day miniature ogee. Usually these miniature clocks have 30 hour movements but this one is the more desirable eight day model. It has a polished mahogany case with the original finish. There are some veneer chips on the top edge of the door and case.

The dial has been professionally repainted and it has a good label. The original stenciled tablet has largely worn away. The “ST” hands and the pendulum are the originals.

This clock has a signed eight-day lyre shaped movement with Geneva stops and hourly strike on a gong. It is running but is very dirty and long overdue for a cleaning.

16” tall.    $95

8029    Gilbert miniature cottage clock.

The rosewood and mahogany case is in quite good condition with a clean original finish. There is a gold painted frame on the door and the decorated tablet is the original.

The zinc dial has colorful corners but the numerals are quite worn. It has the original hands and pendulum plus a good label. It comes with an interesting sales receipt from an antique shop in 1953 when it was sold for $12.

This is a thirty hour timepiece with alarm. The head of the alarm hammer needs to be reattached. It is currently running.

9 ½ inches tall.            SOLD

8030  Seth Thomas, Thomaston, CT 30 thirty hour mantle clock.

This clock has a nicely refinished rosewood case with only two tiny veneer slivers. The gold decoration on the door frame has largely worn away and even some gold paint would make it look much better. The lower glass probably had some reverse decoration but now it is clear.

The zinc dial has a raised chapter ring and it has been very nicely repainted. The label is a little dark but it is still quite legible. It comes with the original hands, pendulum and key.

This is a one day clock with hourly strike. It is running but the strike is quite slow and I think the mainspring needs to be replaced with one that is a bit stronger.

15 ½ inches tall.         $75.
