New Haven Clock Co. hanging clock, “Griffin”, ca 1913. Beautiful oak case is 39 inches tall, clean as a pin, complete with all original parts. The case resembles the Seth Thomas No. 2 Regulator and scores of clocks made by all makers in those days but it has the extra frills, such as carved ornament on top and an added piece on the bottom. The oval glass in the door makes this clock so much more attractive. I forgot to hang the brass weight for the picture, but it is just like The Seth Thomas No. 2 weight and a great many weights in other model clocks. I assume the signed dial is a replacement, locks and latches, brass pendulum, wood stick, and brass beat scale are all original. The 8-day movement is time only and running. On the back is a complete paper label. My records indicate I have never sold a Griffin, and I cannot find where any of the major auction houses have ever sold one. I guess that means it must be pretty rare. Ly-New Haven #587. $900-$1200.
