“New Haven Clock Co., New Haven, Conn.”, banjo clock, “Wayland”, ca 1923. Good looking small banjo but first thing I found, it is missing the tail piece. The case is solid mahogany and very dark, never cleaned. The painting is original, side rails are also solid mahogany, brass eagle on top, brass sash with beveled and bowed glass, and excellent signed porcelain dial. It has an 8-day, backwind movement, and it is running. Ly-New Haven #220. $50-$100.

The 8-day jeweled lever timepiece winds in the back. It is running. It is near perfect. Ly-New Haven #197. $100-$200.
“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, Conn.”, wood cased banjo clock, “Danvers”, ca 1928. The nice mahogany case is18 inches tall, clean and nice. The catalogs say this model has a gold border and colored flowers in the panels. I cannot tell there were ever any painted flowers, nor can I tell there was gold paint. I would call it inlaid wood. But what do I know? There is a partial label on the back, good brass sash and flat glass, and a perfect, signed, nickel dial. The 8-day movement winds in back, is lever time, pin escapement. The movement was used in many of ST clocks. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 80. $75-$150.
Waltham miniature banjo. Solid mahogany case is 20 inches tall, has two excellent painted glasses, George Washington and Mount Vernon.
