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.

Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co., Winsted, Conn., "Office Drop Calendar" clock, 8 day, time and strike, with Gilbert's version of the famous Maranville's calendar system, and in a walnut case with carved trim.
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.

Howard & Davis, Boston, Mass., "No. 2 Regulator" banjo clock, 8 day, time only, weight driven movement in a cherry case with reverse painted throat and lower tablets and painted metal dial
CONDITION: when the case was refinished, all of the original graining was removed, and the case stained medium cherry [originals were finished as imitation rosewood]. The dial was professionally repainted, and has the proper size numerals, but no maker was applied. The #2 movement is correct and signed "Howard & Davis". The pendulum is correct. Pendulum tie-down is absent. Tablet glass is old and wavy, however both have been professionally restored. This is the most difficult size to find. It could be improved by having the case properly re-grained.

German "Digital Time" with fancy brass dial, in an architectural walnut case, brass pendulum regulated movement, has solid plates and open spring, running one day, gilt /tan numerals on paper rollers indicate the time, the right two rollers bearing the minutes, and rolling up similar to American calendar roller [or slot machine roller], springing quickly into next position. At the end of minute 59, the hour roller rotates, and the minutes are back to "00".
CONDITION: the clock is in overall good condition, one corner chip at left waist level, and another top right. Case has been stripped and lightly waxed.. Note there is a seconds hand at the bottom that rotates once a minute, and seems to "set off" the minute rollers as it makes each revolution [definitely rotates once a minute]. Near the top of the dial is the slogan "Zeit is Geld" (time is money), and below the openings for the rollers, to the left marked "Stunde" (hours) and to the right "Minuten" (minutes}. Inquiry on this very clock was made in the Jan 1994 issue of the NAWCC Bulletin (page 506), and it is pictured on that page. Students of German digital clocks will know that Paul Weber patented several formats of digital movements [one with rotating discs instead of rollers]. This movement is marked 00527, and the words "Patent, PAUL WEBER". Will need adjustment. Absolutely rare and unusual.

France, marble & bronze, monumental figure clock of Johann Gutenberg (1399--1468), standing next to his printing press, and a large chase with a line of type. He is holding a page just printed showing the reverse of the type in the chase. To the right of his foot is an open book, with the title 'BIBLIA LATINA', and beyond his left foot the ink tool or spreader. And with a well made bell strike movement, silk thread suspension. fancy gilt bezel and glazed dial cover. The porcelain dial signed Gorini Freres & Cie, a Paris.
CONDITION: there is very minor corner-edge roughness to the white marble in a few places. A zealous maid has rubbed the gilt feet, waist molding and bezel surround, so the high spots have lost their gold and turned brown. The movement is sound, but would benefit from service. This clock depicts a grand theme, sure to appeal to students of education or of religion. Gutenberg was the inventor of the printing press that changed the course of western civilization. The first bibles (180 copies) were printed around 1450 in the city of Mainz, Germany, other printed documents and legal papers predate that.

Votti & Newman, Philadelphia, rare wall clock with metallic painted finish over extensive gesso trim, and with rare front to back pendulum, and the patent date visible through the dial opening = Jan 11, 1884. Note winding below 12. We could not calculate the running duration, although Votti made movements of week, month and year duration. We ESTIMATE that this is a one month clock.
CONDITION: a known problem is that the gesso cracks over time, and there are many cracks, however there are NO MISSING PIECES, which is amazing,. We do suggest that if you bid on this clock, you come in person or arrange to have someone transport it for you, or damage is likely. Original dial (darkening) and pendulum are excellent; old hands from another clock are too short. Movement is complete and sound, but dirty. Here is some info on the company, from the Pennsylvania Historical Society: Votti & Newman, manufacturers of Votti's Patent clocks with one year movements, also one month movements with winding up designs, 2132 Market St, Philadelphia, PA. Among those who are extensively engaged in the manufacture of clocks and regulators is the firm of Votti & Newman, who carry on a large business with [sic] all parts of the country. The firm makes a specialty of finer grade clocks and regulators with Mr. Votti's patented movement (s), which are made to run one week, one month, six months and twelve months. The regulators are constructed of the best materials and contain many valuable improvements of Mr. Votti's own invention..........cases of rich, rare, elegant and unique designs..... the only regulator clock factory in Pennsylvania.

Overall, while the clock remains an excellent decorative object, the lesser quality glasses and carving reveal the real age.

European (Continental), small bracket clock, late 18th century, with fusee / crown wheel / pivoted pendulum movement, and engraved brass dial, in a primitive bell top case of English appearance, with slide-up back and with restorations. Approx 3 day duration (6 rounded channels in fusee) .
CONDITION: gut is worn and needs replacing, but was strong enough for a little wind and to show that the movement is running. Movement is held to a seat board via screws through bottom pillars, and that board is held in case with a single wood screw at bottom. Although case is quite old, it is probably not the original for this movement. Well engraved brass dial needs silvering. Object left side molding needs re-gluing. Still an attractive adaptation of a well made movement that will appeal to those attracted to mechanics. Movement plates measure 3 x 3.5in.
