E. Howard & Co., Boston, Mass., for W.H.C. RIGGS, Philadelphia, Penn., No. 3 size banjo timepiece, 8 day, time only, weight driven movement in a grain-painted cherry case, painted metal dial with Riggs name and Morris & Essex RR.
CONDITION: the movement bears the imprint of Riggs, Philada. The movement is mounted in the case with a single screw from rear. The metal dial has been repainted to match the original. We are unable to prove the Morris & Essex RR notation was originally on the dial, however, the Morris & Essex Railroad ran across northern New Jersey from 1836 until 1945 when it was merged into the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western RR. Howard provided black and gold tablets to Riggs, as was their preference and to avoid confusion with his own black, red, and gold design. These tablets are original and excellent. Both top and bottom door retain original locks as was usually specified on a RR item. Includes an original key. The cherry case retains original rosewood graining. Movement is clean and ticking. Most of damask pattern remains on pendulum bob. The tie down is a replacement. The biggest drawback on this clock is that the entire back has been replaced with a mahogany board. An interesting clock.

CONDITION: The clock retains a nice original finish that has darkened over time. The wood bezel has a four small dents. Round-headed screws securing the dial do not allow the bezel to latch properly. The lower corners and base of the clock case have been bumped and worn, exposing a small amount of unfinished wood. There are two extra holes below movement seat board, but no extra holes behind the movement, suggesting that the clock once had a thicker seat board that has been replaced. The dial has its original paint with the smallest bit of flaking around the screw mounting holes. A couple of the letters on the dial have been strengthened along their bottom edges. The original hands have a small amount of oxidation. The lower tablet has its original paint with some of the black surround starting to flake off.

Welch supplied this type of movement to the Ithaca Clock Company for their hanging and standing seconds beating calendars. Welch used this movement in some of his better models, but not the typical 30 day movement usually found in the Regulator No. 11. In any event, it is a very desirable movement that does not become available very often.

Crosnier, Paris, France, ceramic mantel clock, 8 day, time only, spring driven movement in a figural white bisque case signed "Mongenet" depicting a woman, two birds, and a putto amid delicate flowers and swirling scrolls, all resting on a molded base with applied cast metal ornaments, arabic numeral white enamel dial, and gilt Louis XV style hands.
CONDITION: ceramic case is in good condition. Ultraviolet light reveals that many of the flowers have been glued back on whole. The birds and figures are quite undamaged. Enamel dial is excellent. The clock has no rear door, as it was originally under a glass dome. The age of the clock suggests that the movement originally had a silk thread suspension. The current Brocot suspension is a different color of brass compared to the back plate. This theory is further supported by a clearance notch inside the case above the suspension. The Brocot suspension does not require this space, but an earlier silk thread suspension may have. The back of the ceramic base bears the name "Mongenet". One source lists this name as belonging to a skilled ceramic flower maker in Sèveres around 1753. The clock base is also incised with a "Double-L" with an "B" inside which looks very much like a Sèvres mark. Crosnier is a name associated with several horologists who Tardy lists as working in Paris from the 1760s to 1790s.

Isidore-Arnoult Grenot, Paris, France, figural mantel clock, 8 day, time and strike, spring driven round movement with silk thread suspension in a gilt bronze case on turned feet, the base with frieze depicting Cupid under a garland, standing above is a gilt figure of the butterfly-winged goddess Psyche handling a quiver of arrows, roman numeral white enamel dial, and blued steel Breguet hands.
CONDITION: detailed castings depict the mythological figures, birds, plants, and butterflies. Much of the gilding remains. The statue of Psyche has suffered broken wings in the past. The original wing pieces were reattached using what remained of the wings on the figure. It is a solid repair, only visible from the back, and could be improved upon by a skilled craftsman. A hole in the end of the quiver of arrows may have once held something or it may be an artifact associated with the casting process. There is adhesive residue on the back side of the case. Signed enamel dial reads "Isidore / Grenot". There are a few fine hairlines and a small chip at the right winding arbor hole. The unsigned movement is stamped "7588". There is no rear door because this clock once lived under a glass dome. The goddess Psyche is connected with Cupid in mythology and is often represented with butterfly wings. Isidore Grenot is listed in Tardy's dictionary of French clockmakers as an apprentice in Paris around 1765. This clock is from much later in his career. Grenot is the maker attributed to several figural clocks depicting George Washington, including a fine example at the Winterthur museum.

The pivot hole for the pinion driving the glass rod is badly worn, keeping it from engaging with the driving wheel consistently. The glass reservoir has a few flakes. The dial has some touch-ups and base has been glued into bezel. The minute hand is a replacement. Both movements are running. The fountain movement needs service.

Appears to be complete, but operating condition unknown. Matthaus Hipp (1813-1893) was born in Blaubeuren, Germany and at age 16 he was apprenticed to clockmaker Johan Eichelhofer. He was a pioneer in the field of electrical timekeeping, and was regarded by Frank Hope Jones as among the most important early contributors to this discipline. In addition to his horological achievements, Hipp also made significant contributions to telegraphy, developed a visual traffic signal, an electric loom, and an electric clavier.

CONDITION: very good overall, nickel plating very good, dial with a few minor scratches, hour hand with minor bends, bezel with minor dent at left where it joins the column, bob and indicator good, trailer a poorly made replacement, base with minor dings and scratches, wooden components with fading, dome very good, mirror with minor crack at upper right, not running. Herbert Scott (1865- 1943) was born in Bradford, Yorkshire, England. In 1902 he secured a patent for the mechanism used in this clock. A variation on Hipp's toggle, there are V notches at the tips of all escape wheel teeth, and a pivoted, L shaped trailer at the top of the pendulum rod. Following impulse, the trailer gathers the escape wheel teeth one at a time, thereby steadily advancing the hands. The pendulum amplitude eventually falls to a point where the trailer will no longer gather another tooth, and comes to rest in the V notch at a tooth tip. A projection on the trailer now is in line with the contact, and closes the circuit, thereby energizing the magnet, and providing impulse to the pendulum.

Warren Telechron Co., Ashland, Mass., "Master Clock Type B" for current regulation, 110v motor combined with quality spring driven movement in an oak case with silvered metal dial and single hand to indicate deviations for 60Hz.
CONDITION: this clock is about as good as it gets. Original finish on solid oak case with mild crazing. Dial silvering is very slightly oxidized, but still very good. This clock is serial number 498. Prior to this device, regulating the cycles of AC current at 60 Hz was very hit or miss. Invented by Henry Warren, this clock helped the station operators adjust the generator output to average 60 cycles per second. The spring driven side of the master clock movement would be corrected each day, and made to run with extreme accuracy. A time train is also powered by a 60 Hz synchronous motor, and the single large hand indicates, to either the left or right, deviation from that frequency. For additional info, see NAWCC Bulletin from 1991 titled "Henry Warren and His Master Clocks". A very nice example of the Master B.

Glasgow, London, a rare Shortt-Synchronome astronomical regulator with Shortt's inertia escapement, mahogany case with molded cornice and base, the glazed door with rectangular beveled glass, the upper section with round dial glass and carved spandrels, case sides with short, glazed, rectangular openings beneath the cornice, the signed, silvered astronomical dial with blued steel hands, dial movement with four wheel train and narrow, rectangular brass plates, case back with very heavy triangular cast iron suspension support for pendulum, having two invar compensation rods connecting it to the bottom mounted movement and supporting the beat scale, the movement with snailed brass backplate and agate tipped gravity arm, the arm electrically reset every second, and interacting with a wheel mounted to a carriage at the bottom of the pendulum rod, providing impulse at every vibration, invar rod with steel suspension and cylindrical lead bob
CONDITION: case with minor dings and scratches, some door joints with minor separation, case sides with holes for wiring, door lock in place, but will not retain catch, escutcheon loose, turn catch added at bottom of door, filled hole where a similar upper catch was fitted, movement retains it's original lacquer, movement with minor oxide on steel components, pendulum retaining sleeve with screws in addition to the retaining pin, weight tray in old lacquer, bob with minor scratches, dents and dings, impulse wheel carriage with replaced unlocking jewel, the replacement made of nylon, beat scale a bit dirty. Frank Hope- Jones met William Hamilton Shortt in 1910, and soon thereafter, Shortt had analyzed the Synchronome pendulum impulse, and also became involved in improvements to the existing master clock design, thus beginning a journey which would ultimately result in the Shortt- Synchronome Free Pendulum Clock. The Inertia Escapement was meant to maintain constant amplitude through changes in barometric pressure or other disturbance, delivering impulse dependent on the pendulum arc- shorter for high amplitude, and longer for low. The pendulum receives impulse on every swing, the gravity arm released when the jewel at the bottom of the impulse wheel carriage contacts the release lever, dropping the gravity arm. The arm is then electrically reset, and is ready to provide impulse at the next swing. The invar rods connecting the pendulum suspension expand and contract with the invar pendulum rod, maintaining the relationship between the release jewel (at bottom of pendulum) and the release lever (mounted to movement) Hope- Jones presented a lecture to the British Astronomical Society in November of 1911, and one month later to the Royal Astronomical Society promoting the new regulator. Timekeeping was not much better than that of the the existing Synchronome master, and problems related to locking and unlocking of the gravity arm, as well as disturbances caused by impulsing at every swing prompted the abandonment of the design. Of the approximately twelve inertia escapement clocks believed to have been made, three are known; this example, one in the Science Museum in London, the other in a private collection.

Purchased by the consignor at Dunning's Auction, Elgin Illinois, Collection of Clifford Haumiller, 11/1/87, lot 117.
CONDITION: Master and slave functioning at time of consignment, copper tank with tarnish, bottom glass with minor chips, movement, impulse wheel carriage and suspension block in old lacquer, four legged frame polished and in newer lacquer, front left leg with abrasion, thermometer and barometer good, beat scale and mirror good, pendulum with letter S crudely punched into bottom of bob, suspension spring replaced, and not in the Shortt style, master pendulum impulse wheel with minor flat, two screws replaced and one missing in each of the pendulum safety mounts, slave case moldings with separation at joints, shrinkage has left a gap in the case top, door and left side with warp, door with gap when closed, two catches added to left side to secure door, upper lock latch plate detached but present, minor losses to finish, pendulum bob with minor abrasions, gathering wire replaced, gathering jewel made from a piece of plastic wire insulation. The Shortt free pendulum clock was the standard for precision timekeeping from the early 1920's until about 1950, when it was surpassed by the quartz oscillator. In 1926, the clock confirmed tiny seasonal changes in the rotation of the earth, and was the first timekeeper more accurate than earth itself. A Shortt clock at the U.S. Naval Observatory was studied in the mid 1980's, using modern equipment to measure it's accuracy; the clock was found to be stable to within .002 seconds per day, the equivalent of one second in twelve years. The study also confirmed that the clock was sensitive enough to detect changes in gravity due to tidal distortion of the earth caused by the gravitational pull of the sun and moon.

CONDITION: running at time of consignment, recording equipment was not in use, and so functionality is unknown, movement dirty, would benefit from service, dial good, dial mounting holes slightly enlarged, hands good, microscope with minor marks and scratches, optics good, movement mounting frame with residue from bell jar sealant, pendulum with minor marks and scratches, bell jar good, tank with two small dents and some deep scratches, mounting bracket repainted, switch board and drive for recorder very dirty, reading device cover with missing hook, solenoid mounting board with split. Sigmund Riefler (8/9/1849 - 10/21/1912) was the son of Clemens and Magdalena Riefler, and was responsible for the advancements that brought the Riefler firm to the forefront of precision timekeeping. His innovations include his spring impulse escapement, which isolated the pendulum from direct contact with the escapement, and provided a more equal impulse, a scientific and mathematical approach to the improvement of compensated pendulums, which reduced the reliance on an empirical, and inexact approach to the refinement of design, and finally, his electric remontoire, which eliminated the need for much of the wheelwork, with a resultant reduction in friction and irregularities in power transmission to the escapement. His patented gravity escapement, seen in this lot and lot 169, was employed in situations where vibration was a significant concern, and in cases where sufficiently skilled labor was unavailable to install and adjust the spring impulse timekeeper and it's pendulum. Riefler's late 19th century regulators significantly improved the accuracy of the pendulum clock, and became the standard for observatory use until surpassed by the Shortt - Synchronome free pendulum clock, c1920.

Attributed to Aaron Dodd Crane, an unusual, long duration, torsion pendulum shelf clock, the later, purpose made, walnut and walnut veneer case with heavy molded base, the top with molded cornice, domed top and turned finials, glazed front and sides, decorative gold painted mounts, and mirror mounted in the lower portion of the case back, roman numeral paper dial marked "A. D. Crane's Patent", blued steel hands, brass fusee movement with four wheel train, and Crane's walking pawl escapement, the three plates stamped "7", and two ball torsion pendulum
CONDITION: case with minor scratches and dings, top with minor losses and lifting to veneer, mounts made of cast plastic, dial, dial pan and bezel are 20th century replacements, movement dirty, oily, escapement functional, pendulum with repair at top of one rod. It has been suggested that this may be an experimental piece or a patent model, based on research published in Frederick Shelley's, "Aaron Dodd Crane An American Original". He concluded that the two ball pendulum was not used for anything but patent model demonstrations. In addition, the movement is unlike those used in Crane's production work.

Rev. Benjamin C. Phelps, Wethersfield, Ct., an unusual signed and dated two train skeleton clock, the thick brass frames supported by a pair of conical pillars with knurled caps and bases, wheel work with four and five spoke crossings, cut steel pinions, the barrels decorated with engraved, overlapping circles, recoil escapement with carnelian Brocot pallets, count wheel outside the front plate and to the left of the roman numeral white enamel dial, count wheel detent lever above the dial and marked "B.C. Phelps 1884", pendulum with square steel rod and brass clad bob, all beneath an oval glass dome with conforming, ebonized wooden base
CONDITION: dial with filled losses above center arbor and with numerous hairlines, hands abraded and with minor oxidation, cock retaining strike ratchet separating from its base, all brass components with tarnish, movement very oily and dirty, steel components with minor oxidation, escape wheel appears to have always been mounted as it is presently, pendulum with minor oxidation and tarnish, suspension spring soldered to rod, ebonizing on base with minor losses, dome good. Reverend Benjamin C. Phelps (1810-1896) was born in Sand Lake, New York. The 1840 Federal Census records his location as East Windsor, Ct., and the 1850 Census finds him in East Hartford. The state gazeteer and business directory of 1865-66 states that he is chaplain at Wethersfield State Prison. This clock and three others are discussed and illustrated in the NAWCC bulletin, vol. 20, number 194, page 244- 256. The first two are timepieces, with frames modeled on their English counterparts. The others have unique frames, presumably of his own design. The last clock in the Bulletin article was apparently unfinished, as there were empty holes in the plates, and no dial. It was later donated to othe American Clock and Watch Museum in Bristol, Connecticut, and has had components made by the late Adolph Amend, Jr. fitted to complete the clock.

CONDITION: figured oak case with original finish has been nicely rubbed down. Dial and hands are very good. The stone-like composite surrounding the movement has been repaired, but this is hard to detect.

"Warranted by L. Curtis", Concord, Mass., 8 day, weight driven brass movement patent or banjo timepiece with signed dial.
CONDITION: Refinished banded mahogany case in nice condition. The case is early and is a typical Boston style with thin sides to the head and finely made side arms using a pin through the center diamond to attach to the case. Bottom tablet is a replacement. Throat tablet looks original and the throat frame is attached to the case with two screws.The T-bridge movement was originally attached to the case with two through bolts, but is now attached using a center screw through the backplate. Dial is attached to the head with two L-turns. Original hands and old finial. Dial has been repainted and so it is impossible to determine if "Warranted by L. Curtis" signature was original or added later. The signature is not expertly executed, but may have been an attempt to copy a faint, worn signature. This clock's early features makes us think if one was to put a spurious name on the dial it would have been Simon Willard rather than L. Curtis.

CONDITION: The case is in good condition. The finish has some light spots on the right side and some small scratches on the front door. The application of some pigmented polish would go a long way to restoring the color. The signed movement has cut pinions and heavy plates. The silvered dial is in good shape. The original blackened steel hands have lost a bit of their finish. The brass pendulum bob was ground down on both sides to provide clearance to swing within the case. This suggests that the time train mainspring may be a replacement that is too strong. The movement plays Westminster and the less common Canturbury chime on six chime rods. the chime selector is on the front dial and turned 90 degrees with a small watch key.

Attributed to Gebrüder Junghans, Germany, small swinging mystery clock, 8 day, time only, spring driven brass movement in a compound pendulum, held aloft by a cast spelter figure of a young woman with a basket of fruit standing atop a turned wood base, arabic numeral white enamel dial, with blued steel hands.
CONDITION: the spelter figure has been spray painted with a dark bronze color. Jeweled bar is a bit bent and loose. Small plaque on the turned base reads "1er FRUIT". The unsigned dial is very good. The movement is not signed, but the winding and setting knobs are centrally located and the mainspring is contained within a going barrel. It certainly looks like an authentic Junghans movement. Both figure and swing arm are old, but it is hard to say if they stared life together.

CONDITION: The old cast spelter figure is in good condition. Gold paint has been applied over the original gilding, filling the deep sections of relief. The threaded end has been soldered onto the jewel arm, which is not of the common Junghans type. There is a repaired split in the wood base. The movement is unsigned but has the other hallmarks of a genuine Junghans including the centered setting knob and enclosed mainspring barrel. No modern hardware or adhesives were found within the movement or case. The crystal is absent. We do not see this model in catalogs or previous sales and the Junghans swing arm clock appears a bit big for the scale of the statuette. That said, there is another known swinging clock attributed to Junghans that has a dolphin figure very similar to this one.

Bally Manufacturing Company, Chicago, Illinois, "Twilight Zone" widebody pinball machine designed by Pat Lawlor based on the classic television show from the late 1950's and early 1960's, with soundtrack and volume adjustment, including two complete instruction manuals, operator's handbook, two keys, other schematics and spare parts
CONDITION: the game is in good original stock condition with functioning electronics and plays well. The plunger needs to be adjusted and does not strike squarely. The following excerpt was taken from the website www.thepinballcompany.com. This game is part of WMS’ SuperPin line of widebody games alongside Star Trek: The Next Generation and Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure. Following the huge success of The Addams Family pinball game, Midway gave Lawlor, its designer, full creative control over the design of his next game, and the result is an unusually complex machine. Among its noted features include a working gumball machine (which deposits balls), a working analog clock (used as a timer for various modes), the Powerfield (a small separate play field where the ball is propelled by magnets rather than flippers), and the “Powerball”, a white ceramic ball which is lighter than a regular steel ball and is non-magnetic. In addition to adapting the theme music from the original TV show, the game’s main background music is an interpretation of the 1982 hit “Twilight Zone”, by Golden Earring. This game was originally supposed to be the first game to use Williams / Midway’s DCS Sound System, but because the DCS board was still in development when the game was released, it instead used the Yamaha YM2151 / Harris CVSD sound board.

West Germany, clockwork advertising nodder figure, spring driven motor powering an up-and-down head motion, the paper-mâché fisherman figure with painted cast plaster of Paris head and hands, pivoted glass eyes, tailored shirt, leather belt with buckle, and felt cap, holding a fishing net in one hand and a wooden fishing rod in the other.
CONDITION: the figure is very good condition. There is a bit of chipping of the surface around the edges and back of the boots. This would be easily repaired with some filler and black paint. Cloth shirt and hat are slightly faded, but otherwise very good. A sticker on the seat of the pants identifies the country of manufacture as West Germany. A stamp on the lower neck of the figure confirms this. The figure is wound via a hole on the figure's right side. The movement is dusty and dirty, but runs for hours on one winding. The movement is a little out of beat, probably because of a somewhat short replacement wire that connects the movement to the back of the neck. Originally sold for use as store window displays, this one would have been right at home in a sporting goods store. Dimensions are for the figure and do not account for the fishing rod or net.
