Attributed to David Williams, Newport, Rhode Island, 8 day, weight brass movement patent or banjo timepiece.
CONDITION: Refinished mahogany and mahogany veneered case has some small chips and a couple missing pieces on the bottom door. The throat door has veneer damage in a couple areas. This case is of unusual construction as the bottom box is assembled with butt jointed boards rather than mitered corners. The backboard has a center piece of pine and two sides of mahogany. A break in the backboard was repaired with corrugated nails. Both tablets are replacements. The dial has been repainted. There are extra holes in the backboard in the head area. Modern hands. Replaced finial.

Magneta Time Co. Ltd., Zurich, Switzerland, Magneta Master Clock, 36 hour, time and magneto, spring-driven movement with two jeweled platforms, one with remontoir all in a four-sided metal enclosure with wood base, 2.5 inch signed silvered dial.
CONDITION: Magneta master clocks employed a clever design that required no outside source of electricity to power the secondary clocks. The clock is equipped with a massive mainspring which drives the timekeeper and an integrated magneto, which eliminated the need for the problematic batteries of the era. This was the company's model designed specifically for steam ships. The system was employed on many White Star Line vessels including the ill-fated RMS Titanic. The movement would have triggered the magneto to run once per minute which would, in turn, impulse the secondary clocks located throughout the ship. Magneta literature from the period states that models such as this would power up to 25 secondary clocks. This explains why Titanic, a large state-of-the-art ship with many clocks, was supposed to have two such master clocks. This clock is missing the wood frame and glass lid that once covered the mechanism Some models had a second large dial showing 0- 60 on one side. If this clock had such a dial, it is now absent. The crank is also missing. The balance wheel movements did run briefly with experimentation, but this unit needs mechanical attention to work fully. The multi mechanism is signed in several places. There is masking and packaging tape residue on the outside of the case. A small paper label listing "Louis Wuele" was applied near the upper edge of the metal container. The Louis Wuele Company supplied nautical charts and instruments out of San Francisco around the turn of the century. More information on Magneta can be found in "150 Years of Electric Horology" by Crum and Keller. An image of the master clock aboard the Titanic is shown here: http://marconigraph.com/titanic/electrician/elec_110728_fig14.jpg

Eco Magneto Clock Co., Boston, Mass., circular dial time recorder, 8 day, time and recorder function for 9 watchman's stations, twin-spring Seth Thomas balance wheel movement in an oak case with black glass and gold leaf reading "Eco Magneto Clock Co. / Boston", metal tag above the glass reads "Time Recorder / Inspected by Underwriters' Laboratories / No. 11020".
CONDITION: The Eco Magneto time recorders used an ingenious system that avoided the problematic batteries of the time. A watchman, when checking in at one of the assigned stations, would manually crank a magneto. The electricity generated would close a solenoid within the remotely located time recorder, causing a pin corresponding to that station to punch a round paper record attached to the center arbor of the clock movement. The case has an old, uneven finish. The door glass and lettering are excellent. The old wiring is present, but the insulation is cracked. An original instruction tag hangs inside the case. The UL tag is of note because the organization had only been in existence for a decade or so. The Seth Thomas movement ticks briskly, but was not tested long term.

CONDITION: Based on the name on the door and contents of the clock, it presumably works similar to those made by The Eco Magneto Company. These time recorders used a system that avoided the problematic batteries of the time. A watchman, when checking in at one of the assigned stations, would manually crank a magneto. The electricity generated would close a solenoid within the remotely located time recorder, causing a pin corresponding to that station to punch a round paper record attached to the center arbor of the clock movement. The wall regulator has its own movement which is independent of the time recorder function and only drives hands on the visible dial. The case has an extremely dark original finish. The case has a few dings and one extra screw hole in the front. The pendulum rod has been repaired. The glass and lettering are in very good condition Both Seth Thomas movements tick, but neither was tested long term.

American Cuckoo Clock Co., Philadelphia, Penn., cuckoo wall clock with German 30 hour, time and gong strike with animated cuckoo bird, weight driven brass movement in a wood case featuring leaves, a prominent bird on top, and fox carved in the round after the grapes, a painted wood cuckoo bird with articulated beak and wings, and the dial with bone hands.
CONDITION: Breitinger & Kuntz became unhappy with the number of their imported cuckoo clocks arriving from Germany damaged, that they began importing movements and having cases made locally, often in native Walnut and American woods. The dial on this clock is stamped "Germany" and may be an earlier example, but they may have imported components such as dials, bellows and hands as well as movements. There are small losses to a couple of the leaf tips and upper most wing of the bird on top. The case is otherwise in very good condition The unsigned brass movement has been serviced recently. The bellows have been restored with white zephyr and the whistles recovered with a high-quality red marbled paper. One of the weights has a hollow portion in the bottom. Dark, but largely complete rear label has been covered with clear plastic. The carved wooden cuckoo bird is dingy with some small losses of paint. The movement ticks, strikes, and the bird operates as it should. An image of the American Cuckoo Clocks first factory in Philadelphia (then under the name of Breitinger & Kuntz) can be seen here: https://libwww.freelibrary.org/digital/item/47904

Leonard Wells Volk, a bronze statue of a standing Abraham Lincoln, holding the Emancipation Proclamation the well modeled figure in formal attire, with patinated surface, and marked "Copyright by Leonard W. Volk, 1891", mounted to a round, black granite base. This bronze was first displayed in the Columbian Exposition World's Fair in Chicago in the Springfield Watch Pavillion in 1892 - 93. The Illinois Watch Co. produced the Abe Lincoln model specifically for introduction at this fair.
CONDITION: very good overall, surface with lacquer. Note that this is a 20th century recast of the Volk original.

He was a founder of the Chicago Academy of Design, where he taught for eight years. A copy of this figure was shown at the 1892 World's Columbian Exposition, in the Springfield Watch pavilion.

John Rogers, New York, a small bronze bust of Abraham Lincoln by Gorham, New York founder, the pose very much like that seen in a contemporary photograph by Matthew Brady, the president seemingly deep in thought, the well modeled figure mounted to a round, black granite base with beveled edge, and signed "John Rogers, New York". John Rogers (1829- 1904) was an American sculptor, best known for his plaster casts of genre scenes, known as "Rogers Groups". The fact that they could be reproduced easily made them much more affordable to the middle class, earning him the title of the "peoples sculptor". His work in bronze is far less common than his plaster casts. His three bronze castings include "Pickett's Charge", "One More Shot" and this bust of Lincoln.
CONDITION: very good overall, dirty, and with minor spotting. Note that this a 20th century recast of Rogers original bust.

Sir Donald Currie (1825- 1909) was a 19th century shipping magnate, first working for Cunard Shipping Co., and in 1862 founding the Castle Shipping Co. In his later life, he gave generously to education and other worthy causes. The Pembroke Castle 2 was finished in July of 1883, and spent part of that year carrying dignitaries around Britain, and also to Copenhagen, where the Tsar and other royals were received on board. The best known of these voyages was one taken to Sweden, Denmark, and Norway in September, 1883, on which Currie hosted and entertained 29 members of various European royal families, Prime Minister Gladstone, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. It appears that this clock was gifted following this voyage. Further research may reveal the identity of J.C.

Edward Troughton (1753-1835) was a British instrument maker who invented the double frame sextant in 1788. The signature on the arc is hard to read but compares favorably with other examples of instruments signed by Troughton. The low serial number and size of this instrument suggests that it is an early version of this design. Dimensions are for the closed wooden box.
