6050   Ansonia Queen Anne wall clock

If you pride yourself in having only the very best examples in your collection then this may be for you. This clock has that “untouched out of the attic” look. The case is solid oak with the original finish. That finish is a little crusty but it is as original as it gets. The case is quite elaborate with a stepped top and base plus rope turned full columns at the sides and on the base. I looked it over carefully and I did not see any chips or problem areas.

It has the original signed paper dial which is very legible and it retains the original glass, pendulum, hands and key. If originality is important to you, I guarantee you will not be disappointed with this clock.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a cathedral gong. It has been running well for me for a couple of months.

39” tall.    SOLD

6051   Rare Eastman Clock Company wall regulator.

  Directly from a home in Pennsylvania where it had remained tucked away for a couple of generations, this is a very rare clock in a remarkable state of preservation. Founded by Joseph Eastman, the Harvard Clock Company and the Boston Clock Company were in business from 1880 to 1894. The Eastman Clock Company was in business for only a very short period of time, 1895-96, before Eastman sold his buildings to the new Chelsea Clock Company. Thus, very few of these regulators were produced and fewer yet remain today.

To make it even better, this case is solid cherry not oak or perhaps walnut as is normally seen. The case has been beautifully refinished and it is without one blemish. Both glasses are original and the lower black and gold tablet does not have a bit of lifting. It looks like that lower glass was taken out when the clock was refinished and put back in with newer wood holding strips but the glass is wavy and I am sure it is the original.

The zinc dial was repainted years ago and now has developed some aging of its own. The hands and pendulum are the originals. The cast iron weight has “70” cast into it and it looks so good that I am not sure if it is the original or a replacement. As another bonus, note that the wood separator board is stamped with the Eastman name.

This clock is an eight day timepiece and the signed, nickel plated movement is very clean. After all those years in storage, it needs to be serviced and oiled to be put back in running condition.

33” tall.    SOLD

6052   Seth Thomas No. 2 Regulator.

This clock has a solid oak case with a clean, original finish. The case itself is in very good condition with just a slight shrinkage line on the left side of the bezel. The bottom left corner of the base has a shrinkage gap which you might want to glue and clamp. The zinc dial was professionally repainted and it looks fine.

The hands, pendulum, pulley, weight, both glasses and even the crank key are the originals. This is a good, honest example of a Seth Thomas No. 2 Regulator. As a bit of a bonus, the clock comes with some of its family history starting in Dubuque, IA.

This is an eight day timepiece and it is in good running order.

36” tall.    $775

6053   Gilbert No. 14 Regulator.

At 49 inches tall, this is a large and impressive wall clock. The refinished case is solid oak and in good condition but for a small chip on the upper left corner and the upper right trim piece which needs to be glued back in place.

The dial paper is original but you can see that it has some discolored areas. It does have the Gilbert signature below the center arbor but it has largely worn away. The glass, hands, pendulum, pulley and beat scale are the originals. The weight is a replacement.

This is an eight day timepiece. It will run for me for a week or more at a time and at other times it will stop after a short while.

49” tall.    SOLD

6054    English double fusee time and strike wall regulator

This is a fine, high-quality clock in great condition and ready to hang on your wall. The case is solid walnut, deeply carved and with a great polished finish. I do not see any problems or issues with the case at all. The lower glass is original while the upper glass has probably been replaced.

The painted dial is the original and it has only a few very minor paint flakes. The pendulum with the brass rod is a bit unusual but I believe it is correct as are the hands. It comes with a nice old cast iron key.

This is an eight day clock with a double fusee balance movement, not pendulum. What makes this clock special is that it strikes the hours. Most English fusee clocks are simply timepieces. The hour is struck on a large coil gong. It is running on my wall as I type this.

48" tall    $850

6066   Large Seth Thomas - 30 Day - 18 inch gallery clock.

It is hard to appreciate from the photos how large and impressive this clock is. The solid oak case has been very nicely refinished and is in perfect condition without any chips, separations or shrinkage cracks. This has always been a very popular model because of the multi-step moldings of the case.

The signed dial is original and it does have some paint lifting in a few areas. It comes with the original glass, hands and pendulum.

This is an 30 day timepiece using that very robust double wind Seth Thomas movement with Geneva stops. It is in good running order.

25” diameter with an 18” dial.    SOLD

6067   English fusee gallery clock

Normally these clocks have 12 inch dials but this one is a bit smaller with a 10 inch dial. The case is solid mahogany which has been nicely refinished. The case is in good condition, both access doors are there and it has the original brass bezel and glass.

The dial is a very good repaint without any lifting or flaking. The hands and fusee style pendulum are the originals. On the back of the case it is stamped “No. 5BO  36/235”.

This is an eight day timepiece and it is in good running order.

13” total diameter.   SOLD

6068   Unusual Seth Thomas “Gamewell” wall clock

Seth Thomas made clocks and clock movements for a variety of companies and it appears that Gamewell was one of them. About 1880 the Gamewell Fire Alarm and Telegraph Co. was operating in New York. One of the things Gamewell was involved with was the signaling by bells or whistles to ships in dangerous waters during fog when lighthouses could not be seen. How or if this clock was used in relation to that, I do not know but there are two holes at the bottom of the case where wires went through at one time.

The case is solid oak with an old finish. There are no case damages or chips and each corner has carved leaves. The porcelain dial is signed “The Gamewell Co. New York”. You can see that it has some hairlines and chips around the left winding hole. The hands are replacements. There is a bit of quality to this clock other than the porcelain dial. The bezel is cast brass with a rope turned edge and a thickly beveled glass.

This is a double wind timepiece and it runs about three days on a winding. It seems to be in good running order.

14” on the diagonal.    SOLD

6069   Western Union wall clock.

This clock has a hardwood case, possibly maple, with a mahogany stain. The case has been partially cleaned and the color is not uniform on the front. A bit more cleaning would solve this. This is a large, impressive clock with a 22 inch square case and a 15 inch dial.

The aluminum dial is in excellent condition and notes that this clock tells “Naval Observatory Time” and it was made by the “Self Winding Clock Co. New York”. The hands are the originals and note that it has a seconds dial also. It comes with the extra directions cards.

One thing this clock does not have is the pendulum and I do not know how easy or difficult it would be to find an original. The clock timekeeping is regulated by the pendulum but the power source is an electrical impulse which could be supplied by battery or regular current with an adapter.

22” square.    SOLD

5094   Ansonia "Gallery No. 1" hanging clock

This is a very nice clock in original, untouched condition. These large gallery clocks are always sought after and they look impressive in the right location. This clock has an 18” dial and a 23” case. It is solid oak and has the dark original finish.

The signed paper dial is original and is in better than average condition. The hands, glass and pendulum are also original.

This is an 8 day timepiece and it is running.

23” diameter.  $385

5096   Gilbert square gallery clock

This case is solid oak with the dark original finish and a good looking pressed molding on the door. The only case flaw is the shrinkage line at the upper left just outside the dial.

The hands, pendulum and glass are original while the dial paper is an old replacement that now has the right amount of aging.

This is an 8 day timepiece. The movement is quite dirty and a cleaning will be needed to get the clock running. .

12” dial, 20” case.   $150

5098   French gallery clock

This is actually a very good looking clock with contrasting colors of ebony and satinwood. The entire front is the door which lifts up to access the hands and to wind the clock. It has an octagonal housing behind the door. The case is in very good, clean condition with a good finish.

It has the original painted dial which is signed “Vedette”. The hands and pendulum are also the originals.

This is an 8 day clock with hour and half hour strike on a coil gong. It is running.

15” diameter with a 9” dial.    $125

5098


4076   Japanese gallery clock

This case is a solid hardwood, not veneered and I think it is probably walnut. It has the original finish and the color and grain would jump out even more after a light cleaning. There are no case problems and all the joints are tight.

The dial paper has an advertisement for Coca-Cola and that is a replacement but it does look very convincing with just the right amount of aging. It has a brass bezel and the look of the clock would be much improved if that were polished. It retains the original hands, pendulum and key.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a gong. The movement is quite dirty and cleaning will be needed before the clock will be in running order.

17 inches in diameter with a 12 inch dial.    SOLD   

4076

 
 

4079   English gallery clock

This looks like a model that would have a typical English large fusee movement but it is just a standard movement with a mainspring barrel. The case has been very nicely refinished and is very clean. There are a couple of minor blemishes in the finish but overall it is very good. The lower trap door to access the pendulum is missing.

The painted dial is original but you can see it has a little flaking and lifting in spots. It is signed “Made in England” and there is a bright chrome or nickel plated bezel. The hands and the pendulum are the originals.

This is an eight day timepiece and it is running.

15 inches in diameter with a 12 inch dial.     $110
