Seth Thomas “Banjo No. 5”, 1929.  This 30-inch mahogany-cased banjo contains the Seth Thomas 8-day, time-only pendulum movement #123A.  The dial is silvered, with some marring near the “8”; the hands are correct, behind a flat glass.  The throat and door glass applied images are as shown in the catalog photo (Ly, Seth Thomas Clocks and Movements, Vol. 1, page 79).  It is running and keeping time.  $75-$120. 



624.     $50

Plymouth “Banjo Style 5596”, 1938.  This 29-inch banjo differs from the No. 5 above in that it is time and strike using the Seth Thomas #1120 round 8-day pendulum movement.  It strikes the hours and half-hours on a single rod with a rich tone in a slow-strike manner.  The case is “mahogany finish on white wood” with some scuffs and it holds Washington Mount Vernon panels (rather than applied images).  The aluminum dial has raised numerals with fancy hands and is signed “Plymouth”. The convex glass is a bit loose in the bezel.  The brass bezel and side arms could use some polish.  It is running, striking, and keeping time.  $75-$150.

 “Jerome & Co., New Haven, Conn.”, round top mantel clock, ca 1870. The rosewood case is 14 ½ inches tall, has a full front door that hooks on the side, and one original glass in the door. Behind the door is a nice repair label dated 1882. Looks like it was cleaned for 75 cents. There is a label on the back, nice clean dial, correct hands, pendulum, coil gong, and the 8-day time and striking movement that is performing properly. The case has some black paint around the base and a round piece of wood trim around the glass, both just to make the case a little different. $50-$100.

E. N. Welch Manufacturing Co., Forestville, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock, “Sequin”, ca 1878. The rosewood case is 11 inches tall, original, and complete. The glasses, door latch, dial, pendulum, and movement, all appear to be original to this case. The label is complete and the movement is time only and running. Ly-Welch #399. $50-$100.


702.           $50

 “Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co., Winsted, Conn.”, wood cased mantel clock, “Cottage”, ca 1875. The mahogany veneered case is 17 ¼ inches tall, darker than most of this collector’s clocks for he apparently did not remove all the smoke from the original finish. The door latch and both glasses appear to be original as well as the painted dial, coil gong, brass pendulum, alarm movement and iron bell. The label as was expected is near perfect. The movements are functioning and ringing on their respective bells. The veneer is not as nice on the edges of this case as most all in this collection of 350 clocks. For the money it is plenty nice, just not excellent as most are. Ly-Gilbert, page 306. $75-$150.



703.           $25

Painted glasses, bowed glass over the perfect dial. $25-$50.



704.           $25

“Waterbury Clock Company, Waterbury, Connecticut”, cottage clock in a rosewood case standing 10 inches tall with original gold around the door. Ly-Waterbury does not show a flat top cottage under 11 inches tall. The case is super nice, good glasses, original metal dial, replaced hands, iron bell, old pendulum and key, and an S. B. Terry 30-hour time only movement, and an alarm movement in the bottom of the case. For the movement see the NAWCC Bulletin, Dec.’95, #299, P.741. $50-$100.



705.           $25

“Ansonia Brass & Copper Co., Ansonia, Conn.”, mahogany cottage clock, ca 1869-1877. The “Rose & Gilt” case is 9 ½ inches high, clean and polished, a dent or two, but no veneer problems. Gold around the door is original and it sure is brighter than redone modern gold. Glasses and door latch are also original. The paint is still very good on the original metal dial, hands are replaced, good old pendulum and key, and as usual, a super nice label. The case has a 30-hour time only movement, and it is running. Ly-Ansonia #1698. $50-$100.



706.           $25

“Terry Clock Co. movement in this case is a 30-hour, time and alarm. It alarms on an iron bell. Typical of small Terry movements it has a stationary pendulum, and it is running robustly. The rosewood veneered case is 9 3/8 inches tall, and like many we have photographed so far, has a gilt door. The gilt has been redone. The veneer around the base is all there but some is slightly warped. There are two original glasses, original painted metal dial, replaced hands, iron bell and key. The collector of these   clocks was very particular about the clocks he owned. He had a note in this case that it was possibly a marriage, Terry movement in an Ansonia case. Don’t forget during the 1850-1870 period The Terry’s were part owners of Ansonia. I don’t think it is a marriage. $50-$100.



707.           $25
