United Clock Co “Lucky” and Lanshire horseshoe.  A chrome horseshoe on a stepped wooden base holding an electric clock, marked “Lucky” at the top of the horseshoe.  The stamped manufacture date inside is 1949. The cord and plug are new; the clock is running and keeping time, 9 inches tall and 9.5 inches wide.  Lanshire Horseshoe Model T3 electric shelf clock, ca. 1947.  A bronze base, 7 inches high and 6 inches wide with two horses in a fenced pasture below the dial inside an inverted horseshoe.  The dial says “Self Starting” with “Clock movement by Lanshire Chicago USA” along the bottom. Typical wear to case, with some corrosion of brass bezel.  Clock is running.  $25-$50.

Seth Thomas “Lodge”, ca. 1900.  A one-day lever movement, time and strike in a metal case, 7 inches high.  The sides and roof are nickel and the front is gilt, but tarnished and worn.  Two side glasses in windows to see the movement and a paper dial, old, darkened, but signed and likely original.  A seconds bit and an hour hand with a missing tip.  The clock is missing the knob to set the time, but we’ll include a key that fits the shaft.  The clock is running and keeping time, but the strike is not reliable.  These come up occasionally on eBay and sell for $100-$200.

Waterbury “Commodore” clock and barometer, ca. 1929.  Two ship’s wheels holding an 8-day jeweled movement (as indicated on the dial) and a barometer.  There is a mercury thermometer in the middle.  The brass stand is 9.25 inches wide, 2.75 inches deep, and 6.5 inches high, designed to sit on your desk on small ball feet.  The brass finish could stand to be polished, and there are some spots of corrosion, especially on the sides of the supports.  Fortunately, they are not very noticeable.  The silvered dial on the clock shows some tarnish and wear; both dials sit behind beveled glasses. We had the clock running when it was out of the stand, but can’t get it running now.  You wind it by turning the pilot wheel, but I’m not sure which way works.  There is a lever you lift up to adjust the time by the same mechanism.  Not sure the barometer is working fully either.  Well, the thermometer is correct.  $125-$175.
