English / Scottish, Painted dial and movement for a tall case clock,8-day, time and strike, as found, less weights and pendulum, neat "Father Time" dial, and interestingly, the movement has Graham's design dead beat escapement and Harrison's ratchet maintaining power. C.1850.
CONDITION: this is an interesting piece with good potential. The last workman converted this to a ding-dong tube strike, adding a bracket for 2 tubes and making a double ended sleeve to strike both tubes when the hammer fell. This can be easily converted back to a regular bell strike. The dial is signed Jos. Josephs, Redrum, but the best part is the well executed hand painting of Father Time in the arch. Hands are later, surface rust on steel parts; wheels still turn fine. Dial measures 12 x 17"

Ansonia Clock Co. New York, C.1906, "GLORIA", swinging arm timepiece, 8-day. Note this clock is as-found, for a plumber came to check the furnace last week and caught his tool apron on the brass support for the ball.

CONDITION: the statue retains original bronzed patina, deteriorating and with about 20% loss. This is a long clock arm. Minute hand on ball is broken, piece taped to ball.

English, Wm. F. Evans, ARABESQUE skeleton timepiece, C.1870, incomplete, however includes all 3 plates and dial.
CONDITION: this is not a restoration project for the timid, however when done should result in a seven thousand dollar clock {We note that D. Roberts antiques have sold a couple of these for 5000 pounds sterling]. You will need to make motion works, an escape wheel and arbor, a verge, ratchet and catch for the spring barrel and you will need a chain. A couple of frame screws and the bell are also missing. Rust needs removing. If you choose not to restore this, the parts, pillars, collets, dial, fusee and spring barrel can all be used to fit virtually any Evans skeleton clock. Ht as shown, 14"

A C.1915 custom Banjo case, with a c.1910 Chelsea weight banjo movement, rope front, Boston State House Glasses, as-found.
CONDITION: the top of the head has been routed out to accept the Chelsea mov't, but this appears to be because the case maker simply didnt leave enough room for the movement. Notice that the bottom box of the case is square, rather than rectangular; it appears that a good woodworker sketched his plans from a foto without understanding the true proportions. He also was given an odd weight that is two inches deep, and so he made the case nearly an extra inch deep to accommodate this weight. The painted dial needs restoration, now has a paper glued over, and coming loose. Rope trim on sides of lower door lacking. Overall an interesting clock that can be enjoyed as-is or the movement used in a Chelsea banjo or office regulator. Serial #8549. Ht 40"

Chinese, Reproduction INCLINED PLANE TIMEPIECE, the circular canister rotates as it goes down the plane, however the movement is counterweighted so it maintains a fixed position. The downward motion provides a constant force to the time train. When the clock/canister reaches the bottom, the movement will stop and the unit must be moved again to the top of the plane.
CONDITION: unlike its French counterpart, this clock goes only for a day. This clock lived by the ocean, and the brass canister is oxidized a bit. The mahogany stand has picked up salt from the air and has a white film and is warped a bit. The sister to this sold Feb 28, 2010 by C. L. Horton for $460+10%. Width of plane = 21"

CONDITION: this clock has a lot of potential for the right Welch collector. The top center finial belongs on the side as an inverted finial (you need to make another and replace the 2 incorrect ones that are in place), then you need to copy the very top rt or left finial (both are original) for the center top. If the cabinet maker had seen a Welch book, he would have known what to do in restoring this, but he only guessed. Mov't is good, label on back with some loss, but still generally good and pendulum is outstanding. Finish is original; never stripped, gilt trim door glass perfect; rear dust paper intact.

CONDITION: this clock lived by the sea and the lower portion of the outer brass bezel corroded away, and this allowed some moisture to reach the paper dial and cause some discoloration. There is a horizontal bar that should be soldered at the rear edge of the "wheels" to keep this from tipping backwards, and that bar is missing. It does still stand OK, but you do want to be careful.

CONDITION: this is the first of this model we have offered in 31 years of business. It was an expensive clock when new, retailing for $125 when most other Bonns were in the $20 to 50 range. Ly lists this clock with portrait at $3000, while he shows the portrait LaCerda at $3700, so we figure his estimated price is on the low side.

Chelsea Clock Co., Boston, 10 INCH CHELSEA model, Ship's Bell on mahogany base, C.1910, restored, with hinged bezel, button latch, and special dial with raised bronze numerals.
CONDITION: according to the official Chelsea ledger, this clock case (#66003) was originally sold on August 4, 1910 to W.W. Wattles & Sons as a Special Dial Old Brass Hinge with a Ships Bell movement. An entry indicates it was also repaired in 1929. The movement number is now #70525 and the ledger indicates this as a ship's bell unit sold on November 25, 1910 to Black, Starr & Frost in an 8.5" red brass hinge with base. This clock has been professionally polished and lacquered, dial done by the Dial House, new felt on base. About as good as it gets for condition, both mov't and case made in 1910. If the serial numbers matched, we would have expected this to fetch $12000; our estimate tries to reflect current state. With older style Chelsea key. Diameter of case = 12", ht on stand = 17.5"

Walter H. Durfee, Providence RI, LYRE BANJO, in the classic style of John Sawin, weight driven, 8-day, using Waltham's quality dead beat movement with maintaining power, and Geneva winding stop, serial #5952, c.1925
CONDITION: this clock comes with 2 top trims, as the clock laid on a closet shelf in California for many years, and the larger top slid off into the corner. So a smaller mahogany trefoil was carved to fit. And later the original was discovered. This clock is signed on the dial and on the weight, a large rectangular slab of lead, painted black, and with some of the paint flaking. The dial has paint loss at the mounting screws and winding hole, but is still excellent. Overall finish and condition is excellent. As a passing note of trivia, for this sale, we have a Stennes, a Campos and this Durfee lyre, all serious 20th century reproductions of the same model to the same profile and dimensions. Ht 41.5"

T. E. Burleigh, Jr, Winchester, Mass, reproduction "Grafton Wall Clock" in the manner of Aaron Willard, and the dial engraved with the Willard name, in a mahogany case made to the highest standards, C.1980, one bell at the hour passing strike, and seconds hand below 12, weight driven.
CONDITION: Ted was kind enough to apply a label to virtually all of his clocks, and to sign them in ink as well, making it easy for us to document them. This one is serial #46. Ted was also astute enough to design these to run for a week, since the originals only go for a day. Although we have not sold one since Nov 2002, our friends at Skinners, Inc, sold one Feb 15, 2009 (just last year) for $9480. Simon and Aaron Willard perfected this model clock in the late 1790s, and originals are on display at Boston's Museum of Fine Art, Old Sturbridge Village and also New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their design is discussed in detail in "A Study of Simon Willard's Clocks", by Husher and Welch (1980), pgs 7-30. Although the originals are priceless, these well made copies have garnered substantial interest. In running order. Ht 25.5"

Seth Thomas Clock Co., REGULATOR No. 12, fine quality timepiece in a Victorian walnut case with hounds tooth trim along the top, 8-day, weight movement with jeweled pallets, c.1881
CONDITION: this case has had some restoration over the years. On the top the two outer diamond shaped pieces are replaced, along with one or 2 of the smaller pieces. The door has two veneer repairs top right and one lower right, chip on top left re-glued. Maybe 20 years ago, after case work, it was refinished to blend colors. The finish has deteriorated and peeled off the wood on the lower door, base trim and top inside the case. The pulley is not ST issue. The mercury jar is a replacement, and needs one slightly larger in diameter. The movement itself is in excellent condition, running briskly, and the engraved silvered dial is very good, lacquer slightly discolored; it would benefit from re-silvering. The nickel finish on the movement is excellent; light reflections look odd to the camera, but it is really fine. Beat scale is original and excellent, however the right support is missing rear tab, and we taped rt side for foto. Good original weight has knurled ends and typical ST hook. Ht 72"

With 3-jar mercury pendulum [nickel finished metal jars], and with dead beat escapement, Geneva stopwork and maintaining power. Weight descends left side of case. See condition for provenance.
CONDITION: the heavy and well made mahogany case retains original finish, finials and hardware. The original nickel weight has knurled ends; someone added an inch {add'l pound} which could be removed; it is well done. Note that this movement is set in beat by turning thumb screws attached directly to the anchor, and has very fine wheelwork throughout. The case back has 4 holes that were used for screwing it solidly to the wall. Mr. F. C. "Buck" Dumaine, Jr., railway magnate and director of Amsokeag Co, purchased the assets of Waltham Clock Co. around this time, and ordered this special regulator. He gave it as a gift to E. S. French, and a silvered brass plaque on the front door dated 1940 affirms that gift. On Frenchs death in 1968, the clock was returned to Dumaine, still director of the Amoskeag Co. It hung in the Amoskeag Offices in the Prudential Building for 26 years and was purchased from Mr. & Mrs. Dumaine {receipt signed by both} in 1994, before her death in 1996, & Buck Dumaine's death in '97.

CONDITION: although the dial has been professionally repainted, the clock is otherwise in excellent original condition. The one thing that keeps this from being outstanding is the main base molding which may have been near a chair or door, as something has marred it repeatedly. It is our belief that maybe 1 in 20 made were cherry, as this is the first one we have had in 31 years of selling. Although we have sold several of these in the $4000 range, our record was set in April, 2002, when we sold a golden oak one for $6160.

CONDITION: this clock has an interesting history; comes with a letter from Ebba Bestgen, describing ownership and export to US. Best part is a separate note alleging it was given by King Gustav III to the Ekstrom family around 1700 {2 hundred years before it was made}. We only print this here to remind us all how easily a little family tale gets remembered as fact. Other examples of this Swedish style can be found in the book: "150 Jahre Lenzkircher Uhren", page 162, different motif & detail, but same size & dial. In addition to the serial number, which is done is typeface that matches Lenzkirch literature, well made mov't bears the number "22" just below center of the back plate; most Lenzkirch spring movements bear a number in the 20's. There is some missing gesso and gilding. Dial, pendulum and hands are original. Ht 36" [90cm]

The dial is 11.5 inches in diameter, and consists of 13 porcelain pieces attached to a brass backing.
CONDITION: the strike hammer is off and needs fitting. There is some wear to the painted decorations. The ormolu has been well cast and nicely chased, and has a good coating of gold.

CONDITION: the pine case was once fake grained, and the graining is mostly intact on the inside so you can see what it would have looked like. The dial has been restored, and admittedly this is one clock that would look better with a glass dial to show off the movement. Lead filled weight is a later replacement, and more than adequate for powering the clock. Hands are original. The case has a hole in its "roof" where the aux drive shaft once passed. Other than the case refinish and dial work this appears to be an interesting and original master clock. Ht 78"

Warren Telechron Co., Ashland, Mass, C. 1925, "Warren 'B' Master Clock", (No. 127 Frequency Clock), in a walnut case, and silvered dial, 110v motor combined with quality spring mov't. Spring mov't moves the center hand backwards; electric mov't moves it forward. Cord was disconnected after checking. It is inside case. Note that you should attach cord and just plug it in; there is NO need to ever wind it again. An additional note is if you stop the pendulum and leave the electric motor running, it can strip off the 'scape teeth {something has to give}.
CONDITION: Walnut case is refinished; balance is original and in excellent condition. We ran this to be sure it worked. If the power company is producing 60 cycles per second, and the clock movement is wound and running, the large hand stays up on zero. The console operator at a power station is able to increase or decrease his cycle output to keep the hand on zero. Henry Warren's invention and application of this concept was revolutionary, and initially not well received.....most power companies asked 'Who cares about accurate time?' However by 1925 most operators had realized that by standardizing their output, they could not only tout the use of 110v electric clocks, but could sell or share their power with neighboring companies without fear of a current conflict. For additional info, see NAWCC Bulletin from 1991, 33, pg 374-395, article titled "Henry Warren and His Master Clocks." Ht 34"

English, Tho. Reeve, Harlstone, Weight driven lantern clock, time and bell strike, made C.1920 in the style of 1750; note wooden bracket is NOT included with this lot, we borrowed it from the Hodges lantern for this foto.
CONDITION: a robust and well made reproduction of an 18th Century lantern clock. Easiest way to tell the age of one of these is to look at the pinions, and if there is virtually no wear, you are usually correct that the item is modern. Also modern arbors are often turned from mass extruded pinion stock, and the pinions are usually wider than need be. Overall a well made clock, not to be compared with the poor lanterns that came from India during the 1960s. Lot includes clock, weight, pulley, rope and pendulum. A wall bracket is easy to make.
