Howard & Co. / Boston / Reproduction of The Willard.", c1910. (2) Unknown, banjo clock, 8 day, time only, weight driven movement in a handmade mahogany case with dial signed by Foster Campos, c1990.
CONDITION: (1) The case construction, particularly the head, is a bit awkward and not what we might expect of Howard. Evidence of glue and clamps indicate that it has had repairs by a non-professional. There is a "6" stamped into the wood of the backboard,a throat, box, and door frame. The signature on the dial seems to sit well above the rest of the paint and even some of the scratches, letting us know that it was applied when the dial already had some age. The dial otherwise seems good, though it has been touched up around the mounting screws. The signed movement comes from a Howard banjo no. 5 as indicated by the stamps. Two small wood piece below the movement do not look proper. Reverse painted glasses have some small losses and in-painted areas. Unfinished weight baffle behind the throat with "1908" written in pencil and black-painted baffle behind the pendulum. Damascened pendulum appears to be an authentic Howard. Finial is not correct shape, but is nicely turned from solid brass. (2) Good Foster Campos signed dial, but that is probably the only thing about the clock associated with him. The clock is in good condition with a thin finish. Modern, unsigned banjo movement. Evidence of glue and Phillips head screws inside the case. No weight. Dimensions are for the Howard (1).

The addition of an old (or aged) paper label in the bottom of the case adds to the verisimilitude.

France, singing bird automaton, spring driven movement powers birdsong, as well as head, beak and tail feather motions, mounted on a gilt wood base with fluted canted corners and applied floral ornaments, the bird enclosed in a wire cage with velvet lined base and simulated flowers.
CONDITION: The feathers on the bird are present though they are very dirty. The tail feathers that move are in some disarray. Velvet on base is dusty and worn. Brass cage has a very dark patina. The gilding has worn off of the high spots on the wood base. The leaves, flowers, and berries around the bird's perch are incomplete. The bellows have been restored in recent times and look sound. The motor runs vigorously, but the bird does not sing as it should so an air leak will have to be located. Head and beak motions function, but some of the tail feathers may be inhibiting the full action. The unsigned movement is stamped only with "63 ". It is quite possible that this piece is Swiss or German. The latter is especially likely because when some of the French firms closed, they sold their tooling to German companies who continued production of existing French models.

CONDITION: The brass chapter ring is particularly thick, as is the cast fronton on top of the clock. Thick iron hands. The movement is fairly clean with some light rust on some of the iron parts. The arbors are very robust. The bell is embossed with "Louis Duboi au Puy ". This is a fascinating clock with many unusual features.

The pallets for this unusual recoil escapement are mounted on two independent arbors that are associated by pivoting connection between them. An oversized thumb screws allows the escapement drops to be adjusted. This escapement is featured in Tardy's chapter on "La Pendule Louis XV ". The clock also features a worm and screw assembly within the strike train and a foliot type governor rather than the more traditional fly.

Blondeau, Châtelblanc, France, Comtoise clock, 8 day, time and strike, weight driven movement with Chevalier de Béthune escapement variant, thread suspension with rear-hanging pendulum in a iron post and plate frame, brass chapter ring with engraved Roman numerals, brass alarm ring with Arabic numerals, pivoted winding arbor shutters engraved with "Blondeau / 1734 / Chatel Blanc", single pierced brass hand, the top sides and front with one piece arcaded gallery with integrated pierced and engraved brass fronton.
CONDITION: The brass dial is in good condition. Nicely made brass hand. The alarm mechanism is absent. The bell impinges on the suspension shroud in the back and fronton in the front so it may be too large. Height of suspension shroud is 4.25 inches. It is uncommon to find engraving on the brass hand and fronton. Cut steel pinion on the end of the second wheel arbor to drive the hand. Both 2nd wheel arbors have turned and faceted steel arbors. The second wheel in the strike train has an astonishing 12 crossings. It also has an old replaced tooth. The strike train employs a counterweight, rather than a spring, which is more typical of Comtoise clocks that come 150 years later. Heavy iron fan with two blades. The movement uses a variant of the rare the Chevalier de Béthune escapement. Introduced in the 1720s, the maker of this clock put it to use in 1734. In this version, the pallets are each mounted to their own arbors and associated mechanically via a crutch-like linkage between them. It was found to be less reliable than the anchor escapement which required fewer parts and had fewer points of friction. A slightly more sophisticated version of this escapement is shown in Tardy's treatment of movements for Louis XV clocks. Châtelblanc, the location engraved on one of the winding arbor shutters, is just a few miles Northeast of Morbier.

CONDITION: The front of the clock is outlined with brass along the edges. Nicely made brass hand. The iron case parts and arbors have some surface rust.

The clock comes with an old weight, two small alarm weights, and a period pendulum with a ram's horn nut. Though there are only a handful of known examples, Brocard is regarded as one of the finest makers of Comtoise clocks of the Mayet period. Other examples list the maker's full name as "P. A. Brocard ".

Tall suspension shroud, measuring 5.75 inches tall. Very heavy iron fan with four blades. Movement uprights have small feet. Nicely turned iron crown wheel arbor support. The crown wheel was cut with shallow teeth. The movement will need cleaning and proper cords installed to replace the old brass cable. There is some surface rust on the iron components. The door pins have been repaired and will need further attention. The large wheel that drives the single hand is located at the rear of the movement rather than directly behind the dial as is more typical. The clock employs an uncommon strike with a large curved rack pivoted on one end. The alarm mechanism with iron crown wheel is located in an unusual spot -- centrally behind the dial. The pendulum is a new replacement of the proper type.

France, Revolutionary Era bronze-front Comtoise clock, 8 day, time and strike, day of the month and day of the week according to the French Republican Calendar, weight driven movement with verge escapement, thread suspension with rear-hanging pendulum in an iron post and plate frame, early enamel dial with concave center and convex chapter, Roman numerals for the hours, Arabic numerals for the minutes and days of the month, four iron hands, date hands embellished with Phrygian caps, cast bronze fronton with sun and lion motifs, lower cast fronton with medallion engraved with the date.
CONDITION: The dial has been restored, as indicated by the writing on the back which reads "FD / 1981 ". It is in excellent condition. The movement is clean, and will need new weight cords. Iron fan with two blades. Iron movement uprights have distinct, but small stepped feet. Turned iron crown wheel arbor support. Suspension shroud measures 4 inches in height. The bell is signed "Triadou a Montauban ". The pendulum with folding flat iron rod has a brass bob that is quite dented. The weights are likely much later than the clock. The 1789 Revolutionaries adopted the Phrygian cap, originally worn by the inhabitants of Phrygia and the soldiers of ancient Persia. Seen as a symbol of liberation, these caps are represented in brass on the ends of both date hands. The calendar on the dial is that of the French Republic which used a standard 30 day month and a 10 day week. The year engraved on the brass fronton also used this calendar. The establishment of the Republic was used as the start date for the French Republican Calendar (in French, "Calendrier Républicain" or "Calendrier Révolutionnaire "). The legislative assembly declared September 22nd, 1793 as the beginning of Year II. That is the date engraved on the lower fronton of this clock as "L'an 2 ". This clock was sold by Ivoire Saint-Etienne on October 13th, 2012 as lot number 43.

France, Comtoise lantern clock, 30 hour, time and strike, weight driven movement with rare Maillet or Mayet escapement and atypical vertical rack strike with side mounted hammers, iron post and plate frame construction, brass dial with engraved Roman numerals, single brass hand, brass spandrels above and pivoted winding arbor shutters below, all topped with a pierced brass fronton with fleur de lis at the apex.
CONDITION: Brass components on the front have been cleaned and polished. They are bright and show very fine scratches. Iron back plate and side doors are absent. No suspension shroud, but it probably never had one. Suspension height is 2.5 inches. Light rust on steel components. Iron fly with four blades. Strike trip piece deliberately extents out the left side of the clock. The second wheel of the time train has an curious pinion with three trundles. This clock has a rare escapement attributed to Maillet (also spelled "Mayet ") of Morbier. The escapement features a recoil style escape wheel with the pallets similar to those found on verge escapements, but each is mounted to an independent arbor that are connected to each other by a pivoted linkage. The Mayet family is credited with developing the first Comtoise clocks in the late 17th Century. The clock also has an unusual variant on the strike system in which the teeth on one side of the vertical rack are offset substantially from those on the opposite side. It also employs two large hammers, both side mounted, for the hour and half hour strike. No pendulum or weights. This clock was sold by Ivoire Saint-Etienne on October 13th, 2012 as lot number 4.

Jerome & Co., New Haven, Conn., cottage clock, 30-hour, time and strike with lamp-lighting burglar alarm, spring driven movement in a mahogany veneered case with decorative thermoplastic inserts in upper and lower parts of door, painted metal dial, and steel hands.
CONDITION: Mahogany veneered cottage style case has a few dings and may have been given a new coat of clear finish. The painted metal dial has losses and the opposite side is also painted. Hands are period, but a bit early for this clock. Nice wood label inside of the door. The alarm triggers a lighting device on the top of the case. Matches are placed in the upright cylinder next to the oil lamp wick. An abrasive strip is held in the jaws of a spring loaded clamp. When the alarm is tripped -- by the alarm dial or stings attached to protected areas -- the abrasive strip is pulled across the matches, lighting the wick, while the alarm bell sounds. The device appear to be complete, but some small part or parts may be absent. The wires connecting the exterior triggers to the inner trip plate will need to be added back. This is a model not seem before by this firm and probably very rare.

There are elements of the hood that have been restored and the molding below the hood has been replaced, no doubt to make the hood fit the trunk which, from the difference in wood and inlay, did not start life together. There are other typical veneer splits and repairs throughout the case. The weights are replaced. The lenticular glass is period. The silvering on chapter ring has worn off.

James Arthur, New York, an unusual drumhead regulator made as a wedding gift for his daughter, Bessie Humphrey Arthur, the mahogany case with glazed base and trunk, the glasses surrounded by half round moldings with decorative brass nails, and with applied, cast brass ornaments, decorative latches and hinges, the signed and dated timepiece movement with damascened, skeletonized brass plates and boxwood wheels, and visible through the trunk door, a bevel geared linkage extending into the drumhead top and driving the motion work, the seatboard with engraved presentation plaque, "Bessie Humphrey Arthur from her father James Arthur October 25th 1904", the movement driven by two reeded brass weights, with heavy brass disc pendulum decorated with turned, concentric beads, and the two piece wooden rod with beat adjustment device, all components reflected in the mirrored case back, silvered dial with pierced arabic numerals and minute markers, and blued steel hands of Arthur's design, together with a copy of Hering's "The Lure of the Clock", which documents the Arthur collection and his thoughts on clockmaking.
CONDITION: case in its original finish with minor scrapes, scratches and dings, some polish residue around some of the brass ornaments, glasses and mirrors good, dial with losses to silvering, hands good, pendulum rod good, bob in old lacquer and with tarnish and minor staining, weights in old lacquer and with minor tarnish, movement plates with minor tarnish, escapement will need a bit of work, as there is no locking on the exit pallet, and escape wheel teeth have been slightly blunted. An unusual and highly individualistic clock typical of the quirky output of James Arthur. A machinist by trade, the clocks use involute gearing, and are more akin to machinery than to traditional clock work. The use of boxwood for the wheelwork was an idea aimed at reducing the weight of the mobiles. While we have handled other Arthur clocks, none of our previous offerings have been constructed to this design.

For accuracy of performance it is equal to anything but a compensated pendulum, while its appearance is solid and ornamental. This can be arranged with a compensated pendulum".

Unknown, Massachusetts, 8 day, time and strike weight-driven brass movement Mass. shelf clock.
CONDITION: It is hard to date this nicely made large mahogany and cherry shelf clock in an old finish. We feel it might be a centennial piece, c. 1875, but perhaps earlier or later. The reeded quarter columns have stop fluting on the top and bottom of the column. It is interesting that the piece just below the hood door is a copy of the same piece used on the Willard wall timepiece. The hood top looks more like a bottom bracket to a wall clock than a top piece. The brass movement is unusual for the design of the brass plates and the unusual way the verge is connected to the pendulum. the crutch wire comes down between the plates and extends out the back rather emerging at the top of the rear plate. The dial has age darkened and with some scattered stains. Overall a very interesting clock.
