‘Sperry & Shaw / 8 Courtland St. / New York / Clocks Repaired / All Kinds of Trimmings For Sale”, made this 30-hour OG clock, ca 1844. Early model OG. Everything is original but the glasses. The rosewood veneered case is 27” tall, and only has one door. This case is clean and polished and the veneer is very good for its age, maybe an edge tic or two, and it has the original door latch. Period wood dial with men on horses on the four corners and other war objects in the center. It has old hands and key. Inside is a nice label, a pair of period iron 30-hour weights, a coil gong for the hour strike, and the unsigned 8-day brass movement. $150-$300.
“American Clock Company, New York”, iron front clock, ca 1850-1864. This fancy case4 is 20 inches high and 15 inches wide at the base. The berries and flowers are painted with bright shades of red, yellow and green. The 8-day movement is running robustly and strikes the hours. The brass bezels and glasses are original, paper dial is original as is the pendulum bob. Inside is a complete paper label and show the address in New York as, Depot No. 3.
“Bristol Brass and Clock Co. Depot No.3 Courtlandt Street”, iron front clock, ca 1850. That is the label in the case but like so many Connecticut clock makers they used the American Clock Company in New York to market their clocks. This case is 16 inches high and 13 inches wide, dull paint compared to #653, more a flat black with a sprinkling of mother of pearl and dull red paint on the front. There is no brass bezel and glass over the dial, it is missing, the small one on the bottom is fine. The springs look small so it may be a 30-hour movement. $50-$100.
Seth Thomas Clock Co. Plymouth Hollow, Conn. early mantel clock simply called, “Column No.3”, and I expect it was made about 1863. The case is very dark, was polished by dark finish remains. There are no veneer chips except on the base. The tablet is original, the top glass is a replacement. The printed material says this model was made of rosewood, I say it is mahogany veneer, case standing 25 inches tall. The dial is not bad for its age, a few small chips. The 30-hour movement is time and strike, and performing properly. There is an old coil gong, pendulum, winding crank, and hands. The label is near complete. The movement is signed properly. Ly-Seth Thomas, #1739. $150-$250.
Ansonia Clock Co. parlor clock, “Garfield”, ca 1901. This is one of the clocks in their 6 clock “G” Assortment. Clever how they did that. All six clocks names start with the letter “G”. I notice while looking all the 6 clocks they substituted some of the parts. For instance, our Garfield has columns pictured on the Girard. The 8-day movement is running and striking half hours. The signed dial, hands, original glass, gong, pendulum, and movement are all original to the clock. Ly-Ansonia #1893. $75-$150.
Ansonia Clock Co. parlor clock, “Buffalo”, ca 1901.Walnut case has a good finish, a little dark. It is original and complete, including the very nice glass, original dial but a little dark, correct pendulum and key. The case is 22 ½ inches high. There is a signed 8-day movement that is running and striking correctly. An insignificant piece of label remains on the back. Ly-Ansonia #1903. $75-$150.
Ansonia Clock Co. mantel clock they called, “Kirkwood”, ca 1901. The case is 22” tall, wood resembles walnut, and they called it “Dark Wood”, it kinda looks like oak to me. There is ripple molding around the door and base, and a large number of deeply grooved or pressed designs all over the case front. The original dial is signed, hands and rings are original, very nice original glass, original pendulum, and an 8-day movement that strikes half hours on a gong. It is a very attractive clock and has a lot more going for it than I am giving credit for. Ly-Ansonia #1910. $75-$150.
E. Ingraham Clock Co. mantel clock, “Micha”, ca 1915. They described this clock as being one of their Lake Line clocks. I never heard of any of the six lakes mentioned. The oak case is 22 inches high, just a common kitchen clock, pressed designs in the wood, nothing fancy at all. It has a simple door latch, glass is not fancy, cheap dial is now darkened, cast metal pendulum and a coil gong. It has an 8-day hour and half hour movement that is running and striking the gong. Ly-Ingraham #1053. $75-$150.
