722.           $25

“E. N. Welch Manufacturing Company, Forestville, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock, flat top, ca 1869. This rosewood veneered case was named, “Rose Gilt”, and it stands 9 ½ inches high. The gilt on the door has been redone, original painted dial has not been repainted, label near complete, has old pendulum and the 30-hour movement is time only and is running. Ly-Welch #393. $50-$100.

723.           $25

“Jerome & Co., New Haven, Ct.”, miniature cottage clock they described on the complete label as, “1 Day / Rose Cottage / Time Piece Alarm”, ca 1857. The rosewood veneered case is 9 5/8 inches tall, the veneer is very nice, and glasses are original as is the typical Jerome door latch. It has inside a large iron bell, brass pendulum, original and good painted dial and probably the original hands. The alarm is part of the time only running movement and is functioning properly. $50-$100.

724.           $50

“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock with a cornice top and slant base, ca 1870. The 9-inch rosewood case is very nice, has good glasses and old door latch. The dial paint is new, has ST hands, old pendulum bob and key. There are remnants of a label but it was painted over, I would assume to make it look better than showing a ragged label. The 30-hour time only movement is running, it is their “T” type. $50-$100.

725.           $25

“New Haven Clock Co., New Haven, Ct.”, miniature cottage clock, ca 1857. This period 1856-1857 was when New Haven took over operations of the giant Jerome Company. This nice rosewood veneered case is 9 ¾ inches tall, has gold around the door edge and it is wearing and has some loss. The glasses and door latch are original. I will let you mechanics figure out why the 30-hour time and alarm movements wind differently. It is running and the alarm rings on a large iron bell. $50-$100.

729.           $50

“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Plymouth Hollow, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock with a flat top and OG base, ca 1865. The movement is their “L” type. I will call the veneer mahogany, but I am not sure. The gold around the door is spotty as is the veneer on the case. It is not like the veneer came off it is more like the finish peeled off to make some spots. The glasses, painted dial and pendulum, look to be original. Both the movement and label show Plymouth Hollow as the address. Unusual, the 30-hour, time only movement has a brass spring. $100-$150.

730.           $25

“Waterbury Clock Co.”, miniature cottage clock with round top and columns in front. The 10-inch walnut case is clean, complete, and original. Access to the pendulum is thru an opening underneath the case. The one-day time and alarm movement is running and the alarm rings on an iron bell. $50-$100.
