“Waterbury Clock Company, Waterbury, Conn.” miniature steeple clock, “Small Gothic”, ca 1881. Good 15 inch high mahogany veneered case has been restored, has original door latch, original glasses with some backing touched up, complete label, old pendulum and key, original painted dial with a few chips mostly around the screws. The movement is 30 day time only and is running. Ly-Waterbury # 1485. $75-$150.


190.           $50

“Waterbury Clock Co., Waterbury, Conn.”, walnut parlor clock, ca 1873. This little 14 ˝ inch clock is plain and simple, but very nice, cleaned and polished, or you might say “restored”. It has a one day time only movement, signed “Jerome”. Why a Jerome movement in a Waterbury case? Chauncey Jerome was in charge of the case department and Noble Jerome the movement department. After Noble died Silas B. Terry took over the movement department. Little history about an early, small, plain, parlor clock. Nice label on the back, new cardboard ? dial, old pendulum and key, it is running. Ly-Waterbury#1598. $75-$150.

Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. 8 day steeple clock, the “Gothic”, ca 1929. The mahogany case stands 16 inches tall with a Colonial style tablet. The clock is all original, cleaned and polished, with an 8 day time and striking movement that is running. This is a good quality clock that is a faithful reproduction of those made by Gilbert in the late 1800’s. Ly-Gilbert #1091. $75-$150.


192.           $50

“Waterbury Clock Company, Waterbury, Conn.” miniature steeple clock, “Small Gothic”, ca 1881. Good 15 inch high mahogany veneered case has been cleaned and polished. You do understand that these days there is polish we use that takes the smoke and other pollutants off the wood in one wipe. It has original door latch, original glasses, complete label, old pendulum and key, and original but repainted dial. The movement is 30 day time only and is running. Ly-Waterbury # 1485. $75-$150.


193.           $100

“Jerome & Co., New Haven, Conn.” 8 day cottage clock, ca 1857. Clocks with this label were manufactured by the New Haven Clock Co. soon after it took over the Jerome Co. They were supplied to Jerome & Co., Liverpool, England, and a few were sold in the US. This is the best example I have seen of this style cottage clock. The 16 inch rosewood case is near perfect, has some black paint around the base, gold borders around the perfect glasses. It is generally superb all over and I would call it mint but someone will surely find a booboo somewhere. I will just say it is probably the cleanest, nicest, 150 year old clock I have ever seen. It has the correct door latch, perfect label on the door, another perfect label on the back, original Gutta Percha glasses, original dial with no problems or repaint, probably original hands, and an old pendulum and key. This movement was made by N. Pomeroy and is time and strike and has a separate alarm movement and bell in the case bottom. This collector sent us 350 small clocks and this was one of his first. It is a keeper. Wish I had room. $150-$300.


194.           $50

Waterbury Clock Co., Waterbury, Conn.”, miniature steeple clock, ca 1881. Like some others already listed this is their “Small Gothic” model, stands 15 inches tall in a rosewood veneered case, original finials (left finial just a tad shorter than the right one), original door latch and original glasses. The portrait of the young lady has been rebacked. Dial has been repainted, complete label, 30 hour time only movement, and a separate alarm movement and bell. It is running and has an old pendulum and “SIGNED Waterbury key”. Ly-Waterbury #1485. $75-$150.


195.           $100

“Atkins Clock Co., Bristol, Conn.”, fairly common “round top” model shelf clock, ca 1873. The rosewood case is 15 inches tall. It was said to have a “gold foil tablet”. I am not sure if this tablet is even original, much less gold foil. I do know it has been rebacked with new black paint. It has the typical key locking front door, original dial that is dirty and slightly worn but all there. Hands probably are replacements, has an old pendulum bob and key. The 8 day movement is running and striking a coil gong each hour. “The Clocks of Irenus Atkins”, by Gregory & King, page 87. $150-$300.


196.           $75

“Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co., Winsted, Conn.”, mantel clock, “Paragon”, ca 1879. This excellent mahogany veneered case stands 15 inches tall, has door latch, two original glasses, original and nice painted dial, coil gong, complete paper label, and an old pendulum bob and key. The 8 day movement is running and strikes hourly on the coil gong. Ly –Gilbert $100-$200.


197.           $100

“Welch, Spring & Co., Forestville, Conn. U.S.A.”, mantel clock “Italian No. 2”, ca 1878. Exceptionally nice rosewood veneered case stands 16 inches tall and is original and complete. The typical door latch and both door glasses appear to be original. The label inside is complete, old pendulum and key, coil gong with brass base, replaced paper dial on the old pan and the hands are no doubt replacements. It has an 8 day movement that strikes hours on the gong, and is running. Ly-Welch #360. $150-$250.


198.           $100

“E. Ingraham & Co., Bristol, Conn.”, wood cased mantel clock, “Arch Column”, ca 1865.  We were only able to find one similar clock by Ingraham, it was named, “Arch Column, No. 1”. In 1857 he made a similar clock with a square lower glass. I cannot find another example anywhere of this clock. The labels and movements of the examples I listed are identical to our clock. Note the main differences are the columns, capitals, and bases, and the height of the clocks. Ours is 16 inches, rosewood probably, and is clean and original. Both glasses are possibly replacements, the dial paper is a replacement, has a decent label, coil gong, pendulum and key. The 8 day movement is running and striking the hours. Ly-Ingraham, pages 79 thru 83, and 257. $150-$300.
