DESCRIPTION: Chelsea Clock Co., Boston, Mass., "Model 2Q" hanging regulator for Ball Watch Company, Cleveland, Ohio, the oak No. 3 style case with octagonal top opening to the painted zinc arabic numeral dial, marked "Ball Watch Co./Cleveland.", and "Chelsea Clock Company/Boston U.S.A.", seconds bit and blued steel spade hands, with lower glazed door for pendulum and weight access, all on a molded pedestal, eight day brass trapezoidal plate movement marked "Chelsea Clock Company/Boston U.S. A.", dead-beat escapement with beat setting adjustment, maintaining power, movement and pendulum mounted to the iron bracket fastened to the back of the case, all powered by a compounded cylindrical brass weight and regulated by a flat wooden rod and brass pendulum, serial #176976
CONDITION: dial is original and undisturbed and the center hole is elongated for the hand arbor probably due to careless mounting of the dial to the case, old case surface was refinished some time ago, stained dark with some open grain, period weight and pendulum. All of the Ball Watch Co. timekeepers, both watches and clocks, were produced under contract to their strict standards. The movement chart in the rear of Demeter's book on Chelsea, pages 248-249, gives production details. Note the following: first order was on 10/24/24: 20 2Q clocks ordered by Ball. Second order placed on 12/05/24, 10 more 2Qs; then 12/24/24 90 more 2Qs. Last order was 11/18/26 for 100 2Qs. Total 2Qs appears to be 220 made for Webb C. Ball. Interestingly, in filling the contract, Chelsea patterned not only the case, but also the movement after the the Seth Thomas Regulator No. 3, but with their typical quality refinements and spoked hour wheel. .Seth Thomas also supplied their #3 to Ball, see "Railroad Timekeeping" NAWCC, Chicagoland Chapter. This movement is clearly signed Chelsea Clock Co., Boston, U.S.A., and with serial number shown above. The case on this clock is about 50% heavier than the veneered Seth Thomas case. We sold a similar example from the Wasserman collection in October of 2011 for $7000 plus 15% Buyer's Premium. The only Chelsea weight driven clock rarer than this is their No. 5.

CONDITION: there is a small bit of paper dial missing above the Month aperture, the top crest is a replacement and a piece of dark purple label missing on the left side in the lower box. Otherwise this is an excellent example of this model. Retains original dial, hands, pendulum and finish, plus good label on reverse [minor loss to label]. Gilbert made many drop octagons right after the Civil War with Maranville's patent metal calendar, but they came up with this paper over zinc, with card-stock day circle to circumvent the original patent and avoid royalties. For details, see Tran Duy Ly's book on Gilbert clocks, page 85. At the height of interest in 2005, this was a 2000 dollar clock.
