Clocks 330-339

330.           $50

“New Haven Clock Co., New Haven, Conn. one day, time piece alarm”, miniature steeple clock, ca 1880. The name of this 16 ½ inch clocks is “Derby, T.P.”. I would guess T.P. stands for time piece since that is prevalent on the complete label. The walnut case is very nice, all original, and complete except for one finial tip. It has the original painted glass, dial, nickel bell, hands, and pendulum. It is running. Ly-New Haven #1188. $50-$100.


331.           $75

“Ansonia Brass & Copper Co., Ansonia, Conn.”, mantel clock, “Venetian”, ca 1874. During this period the Ansonia company was transitioning from Phelps, Dodge & Company to Ansonia Brass Company to Ansonia Brass & Battery Company to Ansonia Brass and Copper Co. and then to Ansonia Clock Company in 1877. This clock is 18 inches tall, rosewood veneer, original glasses, dial, gold gilt columns, complete label inside, coil gong and an 8 day time and striking movement that is running. Ly-Ansonia, page 438. $100-$200.

E. Ingraham & Co. mantel clock with upper calendar, “Gila”, ca 1915. The oak case is 23 inches tall, has pressed designs all over, original glass, replaced paper dial, three hands, coil gong, and the 8 day time, strike, and calendar movement that is running. Ly-Ingraham, page 312. $75-$150.

E. N. Welch mantel clock, “Sylva”, ca 1889. Made of black walnut and stands 21 inches tall and is original and complete. It has a very nice original glass, replaced paper dial, proper pendulum, gong, and separate alarm movement and brass bell. The 8 day movement is running and striking on the half hours. There are two good labels on the back. Ly-Welch #451. $75-$150.


334.           $25

“The E. N. Welch Manufacturing Co., Forestville, Conn.”, miniature clock named, “Cottage – Extra”, ca 1869. I don’t know what is extra about it, well maybe it is because it has an alarm. The movement is one day and alarm, no strike. It is made of mahogany veneer, not perfect but not bad, latch on the side, two good glasses, good label, good original dial and hands, brass pendulum, and it is running. Ly-Welch, page 167. $25-$75.


335.           $100

Seth Thomas Clock Co. City Series clock, “Summit”, ca 1890. The walnut case is 19 ½ inches tall, has a side door latch, original glass, good black label, cathedral gong, and a special Seth Thomas pendulum that may be worth our minimum price. The large 8 day movement is running and striking hours on the gong. There are no new parts or repairs to the case, and other than new dial paper it is a typical nice Seth Thomas clock. This is a good example of the Summit, but would be so much nicer with a good painted dial. Ly-Seth Thomas #605. $150-$250.


336.           $100

Seth Thomas Clock Co., a City Series clock, “Boston”, ca 1884. Walnut case is 21” high, no frills, a plain but attractive mantel clock. Needs nothing that I can see and you may choose to have the dial painted, but otherwise ready to sit on the mantel. It does now have a new paper dial. It is not a cream puff; the nickel accessories have been polished. Push button door latch on the side, and an old door glass. It has a complete label inside, nickel pendulum bob and stick, ST stock, found in many City Series clocks. The hands are correct but I believe replaced. Movement is 8 day, time and hour strike on a nickel bell. Ly-Seth Thomas #511. $150-$250.


337.           $100

Seth Thomas Clock Co. “Seattle”, a City Series clock, ca 1899. The clean walnut case is 22 inches tall, has a good glass, door latch, nickel dial ring, alarm ring, and pendulum hanger, but all other parts are brass. It has a coil gong on a signed gong base, paper dial, alarm movement that rings on a brass bell and a brass pendulum. The 8 day time and strike movement is running. It was in the late 1890’s and early 2000’s that all clock companies began to cheapen their parlor flocks. They turned them into “kitchen clocks”. Competition I suppose forced them to cut prices, make them more cheaply, etc. The Seattle was right on the edge of that transition. Note the no frills case. Ly-Seth Thomas #600. $100-$200.


338.           $35

“Clarke, Gilbert & Co. Winchester, Conn”., OG cased clock with a 30 hour movement, ca 1841. Mahogany veneered case is 26 inches tall and the veneer is near perfect. There may be a corner nick somewhere. Both glasses are over 100 years old. Top is absolutely original, bottom could have been replaced in the 1800’s. The 30 hour brass movement is signed same as the label. It is complete but the “fly” is in a bag with the pendulum, winding crank, and some long ago history of the clock. Most of the paper label remains in the case, there are a pair of 30 hour iron weights, painted metal dial, and period hands. The dial flaked badly, was amateurishly repainted, and now is flaking again. $50-$100.



339.           $50

“Chauncey Jerome, New Haven, Conn.”, OG mantel clock ca 1845, with a 30 hour brass movement signed same as the label. This model is the “30 Hour Column”, and this is one of several versions he made. Usually found in rosewood this one is mahogany veneered with excellent gilt columns, and has an ogee cornice top, and ogee base. The top glass is original, the mirror is a replacement. Original metal dial pan with a new paper dial attached, period hands, paper label, coil gong, and the brass 30 hour movement. There are a couple of tiny veneer chips and the columns alone are worth the price. It is a good original rare clock. Reference: “From Rags to Riches to Rags”, by Chris H. Bailey, NAWCC Bulletin Supplement #15, Spring, 1986, page 96. $50-$100.
