It could have been made by an individual craftsman as it is fitted with a Terry and Andrews movement that dates from an earlier period.

Loheide Mfg. Co. Wizard Clock Trade Stimulator, nickel play. Loheide Mfg bought the "DeSoto" black mantel clock from Waterbury and modified it to dispense chits for redemption. At the turn of the last century, trade stimulators were common throughout the US in cigar stores, confectionaries, general stores, and just about any other point of sale location. The logic is as follows: say you stopped at the corner store for eggs, as that was all you needed. Seeing this clock, there might be a sign touting "win two packs of gum for the price of one, 5 cents". Now you don't need the gum, but the thought of getting 2 for one is irresistible, so nearly every patron would drop in his nickel and get at least a chit for one pack of gum [the standard retail transaction]. A small percentage of patrons got two packs, and were always noisy about it, adding to the excitement, c1907
CONDITION: the black mantel case in as found condition in original finish. Original paper dial is fairly clean for its age Hands are original. Original manufacturing tag on the case front and the original sign trying to get you to play. This is a very uncommon item. Ht 12.5"

CONDITION: Mr. Wasserman was one of the most discriminating collectors in the Eastern US, and this clock certainly reflects his desire for both quality and originality. Details on this model can be found in all editions of Tran Ly's book titled "Seth Thomas Clocks & Movements", with extra info in the 3rd Edition, pages 287--289. Clock retains original pulley, nickel plated weight with knurled ends and mercurial type pendulum with thumb-print jar; glass jar with small chips on top edge and one at bottom. Original silvered dial retains original matte finish, never re-silvered, and with some tarnish spots, especially near numeral "V", and the reverse with original lacquer and brushed spotting. Using the earlier nickel plated movement of outstanding quality, this and the mov't for the Regulator 12 are perhaps of the finest quality produced by Seth Thomas, jeweled pallets, maintaining power and fine beat adjustment. Note this case has been cleaned, and retains all is original light crazing to original finish, with all original trims and decorations. Outstanding original condition with inside label intact.

Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, Conn, "REGULATOR No. 14", floor standing jeweler's regulator in walnut, with mercurial compensated pendulum, hinged storage in base, and with center sweep seconds hand, from the Bob Wasserman collection, c1892 (dated), No. 170.
CONDITION: a nice and clean all original clock, even down to a fine white outline along the case edge, where the wall was painted behind it [shows only on the closest inspection]. A further description of this model can be found in all Tran Ly's Seth Thomas books, see pages 404 & 406 of 3rd edition for case and movement details. The heavy engraved silvered dial is missing some of its numeral wax, and with some wear and discoloration. The high quality movement is dated Oct. 26, 1892, with ST logo and number 170. Note it retains original striped pattern on the plates (inside and outside) and original lacquer (with minor losses to lacquer). Graham style anchor with jeweled pallets and jeweled 'scape wheel arbor. Glass thumbprint jar on the pendulum is excellent. Note mercury is held in a lexan jar outside the auction hall. Like all clocks from Milanville, this one is in good running order. Has original ST nickel plated crank with wooden knob. Photos tell much of the story of this fine clock; pictured in place in the Wasserman home. The full provenance of this clock is included in a frame; Bob purchased it on the internet for $28,100, from Edna Greenhaw, whose husband had purchased it around 1965 for $50 from Wood's Jewelry Store (George Hammond Wood) in Athens, Alabama. Note that the price new in 1890 was $360. Ly price guide for 2005 = $40,000. Ht 100"

Chelsea for Ball Watch Co., Cleveland, large weight regulator, model 2Q, in an oak case of mostly solid oak, similar in style to the Seth Thomas #3, serial #163538, c1924, with Graham's dead beat escapement and maintaining power, from the Wasserman collection.
CONDITION: other than a new set of hands and a small ding in the pendulum bob, this clock is otherwise in excellent original condition (see note on hands below}. All of Ball Watch Co timekeepers, 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, We have seen this model bring as high as $5000. Bob Wasserman purchased this clock carefully. You can compare it to one sold by Chester Hicks a couple of years ago on his website, with slightly different grain pattern to the oak. Interestingly, In filling the contract, Chelsea patterned not only the case, but also the movement after the ST#3, but with their typical quality refinements and spoked hour wheel. {Note that Seth Thomas also supplied their #3 to Ball, see "Railroad Timekeeping" NAWCC, Chicagoland chapter, available used} 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 ST case. Movement is clean and in good running order. Orig Chelsea beat scale intact. Note we sold one of these on May 1, 2009, for $4400. The only Chelsea weight clock rarer than this is the No. 5. Also included in the case is a spare set of Chelsea spade hands that Bob had bought for the clock, but the hour hub needs to be broached out a bit to fit. Ht 44"

E. Howard & Co., Boston, "REGULATOR No. 72", for the Santa Fe Railway, La Junta, Colorado station, in walnut, 8 day weight, and with original Santa Fe maintenance sticker behind the dial plate, c1890.
CONDITION: inside the top left of the case is ATSF Form 1649 indicating this clock was used and maintained at La Junta. Very legible record indicates the clock was cleaned by F. H. Barnes on December 2, 1937, and that it was hung in the office of the Asst Mgr and Mgr at La Junta. There are two other form 1649s underneath the top one, however it appears impossible to separate them. The dial of this clock has been repainted, and the metal dial plate [not the wooden mask] appears to have been replaced many years ago by the Railway, as it is not perfectly round and looks to have been cut with tin snips; regardless it has been there a long time and the holes align perfectly. There is a small area of brass showing through the nickel plating on the damascene pendulum. The case is immaculate, and note the maintenance record shows the case was "cleaned and polished"; the original finish is superior. The Santa Fe logo on the glass has been re-done professionally with gold leaf. High quality Howard movement is complete and sound; is running briskly but could stand a clean and oiling. Large iron weight has cast in "1" and is original; old crank with spinning handle. This item is sure to appeal to the Railway crowd as well as the clock collector. Ht 65"

CONDITION: the painted metal dial has been re-blacked over the original Arabic numerals [a special request, as 99% of these dials had Roman numerals]. There is some loss to the original crazed base dial paint, notably around the winding holes and especially at 10 o'clock. The original movement is clearly signed Howard & Davis, Boston, is complete and sound, held into the case with tabs at the rear plate. The heavy suspension bridge that spans both plates to hold the pendulum is intact. Diamond time hands and seconds hand are original. The gilt pendulum stick is original, and the bob retains its original brushed pattern [careful not to polish it off]. The rosewood graining on the case is especially nice with lively appearance. Best part is the original tablets that are nicely crazed and have received NO restoration.

CONDITION: another fine clock from Milanville, PA. photo shows the clock hanging in the Wasserman home. For a truer image of the rich color of this clock, see the close up of the top and bottom. To minimize flash back, we took the main image from the left and lost a bit of detail. Like most of the clocks, Bob W. acquired this one with a lightly crazed finish and he rubbed and waxed it with a minimum of loss to the finish. Stated briefly, the clock is in outstanding original condition and sure to please the most discriminating collector. Nickel finish on dial bezel, weight and pulley are intact. Original dial with only minor losses near 12 and 6 from setting the hands. Additional details on the #19 may be found in Tran Duy Ly's book on Seth Thomas, 3rd Edition, pages 301--303. Movement is running briskly and is generally clean, however some of the oil has congealed and it would benefit from disassembly, wipe pivots, reassemble and oil. Movement is numbered 293.

The original hanging bracket is now held in place with old machine screws (a common & good change for a heavy clock). The walnut case has a pleasant dark red hue. Finials are all original. Counter weighted hands original. Original wavy glass in door. These are rare items and it is nice to find one of documented provenance. Ht 49"

Seth Thomas for Ball Watch Co., Cleveland, "CUSTOM" model jeweler's regulator, weight driven, unlisted in Seth Thomas catalogs, however there are 4 known examples, each slightly different. See Tran Ly's book on Seth Thomas, 3rd Edition, pages 316 and 317 for detailed photos and information. This model with No. 68 movement with jeweled pallets. From the Bob Wasserman collection. Walnut case with burled accents. c1890
CONDITION: this was a limited production item, and Seth Thomas Clock Company experimented with a couple of movements. This case shows the witness outline and 4-holes for a larger iron bracket, but not the trapezoidal bracket in Mike Lowe's clock, rather a 3rd pattern with rounded corners (see detail photos on website). The movement & bracket in this Wasserman clock are identical to the ones shown on page 316 of Ly's Seth Thomas book. Bob was aware of the condition, but enjoyed the clock as one of the rarest Ball models known. The walnut case itself is in outstanding condition with original finish intact, nicely waxed. Movement clean and running briskly; 2-jar pendulum is perfect with original thumb print jars intact. Included is the Bill of Sale to Wasserman for $85,000 and a list of the several previous owners.

Seth Thomas, for Ball Watch Co., Cleveland, O., "REGULATOR No. 3" in oak, quality weight driven timepiece, 8 day, c1890
CONDITION: typical of Bob Wasserman's clocks, this is overall in excellent original condition; see leafy beige wall paper surrounding clock in Wassernan house. The finish has been nicely rubbed and waxed; there is no open grain. The golden color is so rich it is difficult to get a good photo of it; you really need to see it in person to appreciate it. The original dial has some flakes at the attaching points and wear to the numerals, especially 3 - 4 & 5, from setting the time. As you can see in the detail photo long ago, perhaps the factory added corbels for additional support of the case back to the case sides. This is not the first of these we have found; see Tran Ly's book on Seth Thomas (1996), page 113 for identical reinforcement; note too that the clock is also for Ball, but dial worn at 8 - 9 & 10. The movement has been cleaned, serviced and is running. The original Ball signature is good, with minor wear and a scratch. The brass bob and weight are original, the weight has knurled top and bottom and long hook. Original beat scale intact. The black Seth Thomas label in the case bottom is original and in fair condition, having suffered from pendulum, wt and key scuffs and tears. Ht 42"

G. Chandlee, Winchester (Virginia), a painted dial, center seconds, rolling moon, 8 day movement, c1790, now in a mahogany veneer over heavy hardwood case from the same period. (1790)
CONDITION: Goldsmith Chandlee was well known as both a clock and instrument maker. This well made movement has smooth barrels, a precise Graham dead beat escapement, (with 'scape wheel set in the center of the plates), an iron false plate to accept the 4 dial feet, and heavy baluster pillars with turned trim rings. The attractive case has a look appropriate for the period, however the risers have been extended to accept this movement. The well figured veneer on the case is accented by cross banding around the door and on the plinth. Quarter columns on plinth and trunk are reeded and with wooden capitals that are appropriate. Dial signature is still good and untouched and hands are original. There is paint loss at the locations of the dial feet and some paint loss on the rolling moon. For reference, see "Six Quaker Clockmakers" by descendant Edw Chandlee (1943) Note: Goldsmith Chandlee was oldest son of Benjamin Chandlee, Jr. who made the clock in lot 870. Ht 89". The sweep seconds hand is loose.

CONDITION: Refinished pine case in clean condition. The nicely designed hood is not original to the rest of the case and may have been fabricated to replace a damaged or missing hood. The painted dial has suffered a break at the bottom left corner and needs some attention. The dial has several stress cracks to the paint probably caused by expansion and contraction over the years from humidity. The overall discolored look of the dial may have been caused by someone applying a layer of shellac to protect the paint. In restoring the movement someone has replaced the original wood bushings with plastic. The bell stand and bell are a later restoration. Complete with pendulum and weights. Ht 85".

The painted metal dial is very good, but the 4 mount holes have been elongated to line up correctly. Movement ticks but may need cleaning. Ht. 39"

There is also a thin wooden shim [see photo] under the entire movement, to move it forward slightly. Movement complete and ticks. Hands are possible replacements. Ht 27 1/2" Dial diameter 18"

Case houses a 30 day, type III decorative scroll design movement with a mixture of brass and tin wheels. Original painted dial has loss at the winding holes, center area, and at the mounting screws.
