6008   E.N. Welch steeple on steeple clock

E.N. Welch steeple on steeple clock. This style of clock has been difficult to find lately in good condition and this one is a bit better than average considering it retains both original reverse painted glasses. Those tablets are very colorful and show almost no paint loss. The upper glass is original also.

The mahogany case has been refinished. There is one veneer repair near the peak and one small chip on the base but otherwise it is fine. Three of the finials are perfect and the other has a chip which is only visible from the backside.

The zinc dial has the original paint but the numerals have been restored. As is almost always the case, this Welch label has darkened but the lettering is still visible and is nearly complete. The hands and pendulum are the originals.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a gong. It is running and striking properly but the strike is quite fast and I think the prior service person installed a spring that was too strong.

23 ½”  tall.    SOLD

6009   E. & A. Ingraham steeple clock.

This is a fairly early clock. It has a refinished mahogany case which is in good condition but for two chips of the veneer on the base. The finial tips have not been chipped. Both of these glasses are the originals and the lower tablet is cut glass not the later stenciled glass.

I think the dial was repainted many years ago but it is well and accurately done so it is hard to tell. The label is in quite good condition and complete. The hands and the pendulum are the originals.

This is an eight day clock with steel mainsprings and hourly strike on a gong. The movement is not signed. The movement is quite clean, has been rebushed, recently oiled and seems to be in good running order.

20”  tall.    SOLD

6010   J.J. & W. Beals, Boston, 8 day steeple for parts

J. J. & W. Beals, Boston, 8 day steeple clock for parts. This clock is in rather poor condition but it does have some redeeming social value because it is an early model and retains both original 8 day brass mainsprings. The rosewood case has numerous veneer chips and is missing the top of the left finial. Both glasses are the originals but the lower is obviously clear.                                   

The zinc dial has the original paint with some touched up areas. The label is quite good with the Beals label being an overpaste. This is the label that shows the interior of a clock showroom. It has the original pendulum and hands which are worth something in themselves. 

The movement is signed “Brewster & Ingrahams, Bristol, Ct, USA”. This is an early model with a central snail for the strike, not a countwheel. This is only a partial movement. It is missing the strike train except the great wheel with the brass mainspring. The time train is complete. Hopefully someone out there can use this to restore another one.

20” tall.                                                                                                                

SOLD

6011   Brewster & Ingrahams beehive clock

Brewster & Ingrahams beehive clock. This clock has a mahogany veneer case but note that the veneer has been removed from the sides and there is a fairly large chip at the back edge of the peak. Both glasses have been replaced. The lower glass is an original reverse painted tablet but it has been cut down from another clock.

The painted dial is the original and is faintly inscribed “Brewster & Ingrahams, Bristol, Ct. USA”. The hands and pendulum are replacements.

This clock has the early style ribbed movement which is signed in the same manner as the dial. It is an eight-day movement with steel springs. It is quite dirty and will need servicing before it will run. Note that originally it had an alarm which is now missing.  

19"  tall.  SOLD

6012   Waterbury miniature steeple clock.

This clock has a refinished mahogany case which is in good condition but for a little bit of lifting in the veneer on both sides of the peak. Both finials are the originals and undamaged. It has the original hands and pendulum plus a good label. Both the upper and lower glasses are missing. The painted dial is original but it has a bit of flaking at the top.

This is a one day clock plus it has an alarm. It is in good running order.

15”  tall.     SOLD

6013   Southern Calendar Clock Company “Fashion”
double dial calendar.

I believe this is the “No. 4” model. I have not owned one of these for several years and it is just coincidence that I recently found two of them. This one has a refinished solid walnut case which is in near perfect condition but for the chip on the center finial. Those finials are the originals.

The goldleaf “Fashion” glass is the original and the wood strips holding it in have never been disturbed.

The upper dial appears to have been repainted while the lower dial is the original though it does have some paint loss and touchup. The roller papers are the originals but they have darkened.

The upper hands appear to be the originals while the calendar hand is probably a replacement. Note that I did not get a pendulum with this clock but Merritts does sell one that could be shortened to fit and has the proper bob diameter.

This is an eight-day clock with hourly strike on a large brass bell.

31 ½” tall.      SOLD

6014   Ithaca “No. 10 Farmers” double dial calendar clock.

Ithaca “No. 10 Farmers” double dial calendar clock. Yes, I know this is not a particularly rare model but if you are a person who wants only the best examples in your collection then this might be a clock for you. It has the three most important ingredients for an antique clock: condition, condition, condition. The solid walnut case has almost no flaws and a good, original finish. This clock looks like it was put away in storage and remained hidden for many years.

Both glasses are the originals, both dial papers are nearly flawless, the roller papers are original and very crisp, the hands and nickel plated bob are the originals and the backboard has never been split or damaged. You will not be disappointed with this clock.

This is an eight-day clock with hourly strike on a gong and it has been running well for me.

26”  tall.       $775.

6015   Southern Calendar Clock Company “Fashion”
double dial calendar.

Southern Calendar Clock Company “Fashion” double dial calendar. This is very similar to the other “Fashion” clock and I believe it is also a “No. 4” model. The solid walnut case has been nicely refinished and is in very good condition but for the chips on the on tips of the original finials. I guarantee that the gold “Fashion” glass is the original and the wooden strips holding it in have never been disturbed.

Both painted dials are the originals but you can see that the upper dial has some flaking while the lower dial is discolored by something which might be able to be removed. Note that on the line “Patented March 18th, 1879” the dial has been slightly bent. While the roller papers look very good I believe they have been replaced.

The hands, key and distinctive pendulum are the originals. There is a black and silver label behind the pendulum area.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a large, resonant brass bell. It seems to be in good running order.

31 ½” tall.   SOLD

5022   Ithaca "No. 5" double dial calendar clock.

 The case is rosewood and it has the original finish. There are some veneer chips on the base and a shrinkage line on the front.

Both dial papers are the originals but the upper dial does show some wear. The hands, pendulum and roller papers are the originals.

There are two labels on the back of the clock but they are very dark and incomplete.

This is an 8 day spring driven clock with hourly strike on a gong. It runs a short while and stops. The calendar day and date do trip over correctly.

22 ½”  tall.    $395.

4009   Ithaca "No. 10 Farmer's" double dial calendar clock.

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. 

$475.

5037   Seth Thomas cottage clock.

This clock has a clean rosewood case in the original finish. There is one veneer chip on the frame around the mirror but the rest is fine. That mirror is the original and the dial has been very nicely repainted.

There is a good label plus the original pendulum and “ST” hands.

This is an 8 day clock with strike and alarm. It is running.

5035   Welch Spring and Company "Italian No. 2" shelf clock.

This clock has a refinished rosewood case with a little veneer loss on the front moldings. The gold has been polished off the trim around the door.

The reverse decorated gold leaf glass is the original but it does have the paint flaked away from the flowers. The painted dial shows some wear, the label is a bit dark and it has the original hands, pendulum and key.

2321   Seth Thomas Cottage Clock.

This rosewood case is in superior condition. It has been professionally refinished and there is not one veneer nick or blemish. It has the original reverse painted tablet and painted dial which does have some flaking and lifting.

The label is complete and legible. It has the original pendulum, key and "ST" hands along with the signed gong base.

This clock has a 30 hour brass movement which is signed. It strikes the hours on a coil gong. This clock has not been run in many years so it is overdue for a cleaning.

14 inches tall.    SOLD
