8009 Erastus Hodges, Torrington, Connecticut transition style wood works shelf clock.
An honest, original clock in unrestored condition. If you want to put in a bit of effort to clean the case and put on a set of feet you will have a fine and rather rare clock at a very reasonable price.
The stenciling on the splat should clean up nicely but the stenciling on the columns is worn. There is also a veneer chip at the bottom left and a missing cap at the upper right. The colorful dial is in good condition without any of the usual warping but it would also benefit from a bit of cleaning.
The best part of the clock is the original reverse painted tablet. For some reason, Torrington clocks seldom retain their original tablets but this one is the exception. It does have some paint losses at the center but send it to Tom Moberg and those losses will disappear. You will not be disappointed with his work. I have used his services for over 30 years.
This clock comes with the original hands, weights, pendulum and key. It also has the original upper glass and a slightly stained but very legible label.
This is a 30 hour wood works clock with hourly strike on a bell. The movement is very dirty but I looked it over carefully and did not see one chipped or replaced tooth. With some finger pressure on the gear trains both the escapement and strike mechanism operated properly but a cleaning and new cords will be needed to put the clock in running order.
26 inches tall. $475.
8010 Seth Thomas “Castle” shelf clock.
This is an unusual, seldom seen model. It has a very clean, refinished mahogany case with carvings on the base, reeded sides and a figured mahogany panel at the top. The case is just about perfect without any damages or veneer problems.
The dial has been professionally touched up around the center opening where there was some missing paint. It has the original hands, weights and nickel damascene pendulum. The pendulum stick has been broken and was well repaired.
This is a 30 hour weight driven clock which strikes the hours on a gong.
The movement is signed and it is in good running order. $185.
8011 J. C. Brown, Forestville Manufacturing Co.
ripple beehive clock.
This clock has a mahogany case which has been refinished. It is very clean and there are no case problems whatsoever. There are no chips or cracks to the ripple molding and the joint at the peak is perfect without any loss or separations as is usually the case. The upper glass and the frosted tablet are both replacements. I do have the original lower glass but it is clear indicating that it must have been a reverse painting originally. I am including that glass with the clock in case you wish to have another painting done.
The signed dial is original but you can see that it was poorly repainted around the outer edge. Personally, I would send it out to a dial shop and have them do a better color match before I would consider a total repaint. The green label is complete and is very legible. The pendulum is original while the hands and key are replacements.
This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a coil gong. The movement is signed “J. C. Brown, Forestville, Ct. U.S.A.” It does tick and strike but it has not been serviced in a long time and that will need to be done to put the clock in good running order.
18 inches tall. $575.
8012 Atkins “London” mantle clock.
This clock has a rosewood case in the original finish and it is in excellent condition with the veneer being virtually perfect. With just a bit of case cleaning, the color and grain of the wood would be even more visible. Both reverse decorated glasses are original with just a small amount of loss in the black background color.
The dial is original and in good shape but for one paint flake above the center arbor. There is an excellent label showing that this clock was retailed by Daniel Pratt’s Sons in Reading, Mass. It has the original hands and distinctive copper colored pendulum used by Welch and Atkins.
This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a coil gong and it is in good running order.
16 1/2 inches tall. $325.
8013 Chauncey Jerome, New Haven Connecticut.
Yes, this is simply an ogee clock but it is worth a look because it is so complete and original. The mahogany case is virtually perfect and was nicely refinished some years ago. The stenciled floral glass is probably by Fenn and it is also perfect without any wear or problems. The painted zinc dial has a raised chapter ring, colorful corners and is in great shape.
The label has darkened and has some losses but is still quite legible. The minute hand is a replacement while the weights, pendulum and key are the originals.
This is a 30 hour clock with hourly strike on a gong. The previous owner said that it had been running well for him for a number of years.
26 inches tall. $120.
8014 E. N. Welch “Arditi” double dial calendar clock.
This is a rather uncommon model and it has been years since I have owned another. The case is solid walnut and it was refinished a number of years ago. The only case issues are a crack in the top crest just to the left of center and a replacement return peace on the right top.
Both dial papers are the originals but you can see that they have become a bit discolored. There is a dark but legible label on the back and a very good label on the interior. The hands, pendulum and key are the originals while the door glass is a replacement.
This is an eight-day clock with hourly strike on a gong. It has a signed movement which does tick and strike but is overdue for a cleaning. The calendar does seem to trip over correctly.
27 inches tall. $475.
8080 Another E. N. Welch Arditi double dial calendar clock.
E. N. Welch Arditi double dial calendar clock. This clock is in near perfect, original condition. It will be hard to find one better. The solid walnut case has no chips, damages or loose moldings and it has a good original finish. It obviously was not used very much and it has that “fresh out of the attic” look.
Both dial papers are original and they show very little wear. There are three labels and all of them are in very good shape. It also has the original hands, pendulum, glass and key. This is the model that uses the Gale Patent Calendar and that lower movement is signed and dated April 21, 1885. Note that the calendar dial is not set up in the usual manner with roller papers but with subsidiary dials instead.
Truthfully, as I write this I have owned this clock only a few hours as I purchased it today. It is running and striking properly but I have not had time to check out the operating condition of the calendar.
27 inches tall. $675.
8015 Rare Waterbury “Buffalo” oversized calendar clock.
This clock is about as original as you could hope to find. If you are looking for clocks based on condition rather than quantity then this clock deserves a look. It has a solid walnut case in the original finish and there are no case problems, chips or faults at all. You will not be disappointed with the condition of this clock.
The signed paper dial is in near perfect condition, it has the original stenciled tablet, the distinctive Waterbury pendulum, three original hands, two labels and a signed Waterbury key.
In the second photo it is situated next to an average sized walnut parlor clock to give you an idea of the dimensions. It has a 7 inch dial instead of the normal 5 inch and it is 27 inches tall instead of the normal 22 inches.
This is an eight day clock with hourly strike plus simple calendar. It seems to be in good running order and goes nine days per winding for me. $425.
8016 Welch, Spring & Co. “Italian No. 3” double dial calendar clock.
The case is rosewood and it is in the original finish but you can see that there are serious veneer losses on the base. The columns and wood bezels are grain painted to resemble rosewood. The closure latch on the lower door is missing.
Both dials are original and they are in reasonably good condition, just a bit dirty. There are two good labels, one on the backboard and one on the calendar mechanism. It has the original hands and distinctive copper colored pendulum plus the original key.
This is an eight day clock with hourly strike. It is running but it has not been cleaned for many, many years. The calendar will need a minor adjustment to trip over properly.
20 inches tall. $275.
5024 Ansonia ogee clock.
This mahogany case is very clean and refinished. The veneer is in great shape without any damages and it is ready for your shelf.
It has the original reverse painted glass which does have some flaking in the blue background but it is not very obvious with the door closed.
The painted zinc dial is quite colorful and in great condition with almost no paint loss or wear. There is a very good label plus the original hands, pendulum and weights.
This is a 30 hour brass movement clock with hourly strike on a gong.
25 ½” tall. $85.
As calendar clocks go, this is not a terribly rare model but it is worth attention because the condition is so good. The solid walnut case has been very nicely refinished and it has no problems or damages at all.
Both dial papers are very clean and legible with only a very minimal amount of discoloration. The roller papers have darkened a little but they are very legible and secure on the rollers. The hands and the pendulum are also original. Just a bit of the label remains on the inside of the backboard.
This is an eight day clock which strikes the hours on a gong and is in good running order.
21 inches tall.
