8017   Waterbury “Oxford” mirrorside clock.

 This clock has a solid walnut case with the original finish. There are no damages to the case and the graining on the three lower panels is in great condition. The finials are the originals and it also retains the original mirrors and cast Cupid figures. It has the original signed paper dial which does have some discoloration and loss.

The stenciled tablet is the original but note there is a crack at the bottom right corner. The hands and the pendulum are also the originals plus it has a signed Waterbury key. There are two very good labels on the back.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a cathedral gong. It is currently running.

23 inches tall.               $285.

8018   Nicolas Muller walnut parlor clock.

This solid walnut case was refinished a number of years ago. I think the two drop finials are probably replacements and note that three of the five applied buttons have chips on their edges.

What makes the clock special is the pendulum and I am sure it is the first one of these that I have seen. The frame is polished brass while the star is beveled glass with a mirror background. It has the original stenciled glass plus a reasonably good dial paper and the original hands.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a resonant nickel bell. It is running but I do not think it has been cleaned for quite some time. There is no label on the clock but the movement is signed “Nicolas Mullers Sons  & Co.”

23 ½ inches tall.                 $120.

8019   Waterbury “Medina” walnut parlor clock.

This clock has a solid walnut case with the original finish but a later coat of shellac has been applied. There are no chips, cracks or damages to the case. It has the original stenciled glass which is in good condition showing no wear or loss.

The painted dial is the original and it has only very minor flakes. The hands are original as is the pendulum which is signed. There are two dark but very legible labels on the back.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a gong plus it has an alarm and it is in good running order.

22 inches tall.         $110.

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.

8021  E. N. Welch 30 hour steeple clock.

E. N. Welch 30 hour steeple clock. This is not a very rare clock but it is very original and the condition is quite good. Earlier than most steeple clocks, this one dates to about 1850. The mahogany case has no veneer problems at all and both finial tips are intact. The original finish is rather dark and it would benefit from a slight cleaning.

It has the original painted dial and a very good reverse decorated tablet by William Fenn with a patriotic eagle, banner, arrows, stars etc. That tablet has quite minor loss to some of the background color. It has a very good label plus the original pendulum and key. The hands are replacements of the proper style.

This is a 30 hour clock with hourly strike on a gong. It is running but the time side click has been repaired and it looks a little weak to me.

19 inches tall.    $145. 

8021

 
 

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

5042   Seth Thomas "Eclipse" walnut parlor clock.

This clock has a solid walnut case in the original finish. A little surface cleaning would make it look even better. The case is virtually perfect without any missing or broken trim pieces.

It has one of the best stenciled glasses made by Seth Thomas with a large aperture to view the elaborate “Eclipse” pendulum. The dial has been expertly repainted. There is a very good label plus the original hands.

This is an 8 day clock with resonant strike on a cathedral gong plus alarm. It has the good quality, large signed lyre movement. The pendulum does need a new suspension spring.
24” tall.     $185
