A Swiss or French pinwheel movement with porcelain dial and center seconds, now in an American oak case, probably from a self winding school unit, with grid/lyre pendulum, 8-day. C.1900.
CONDITION: the movement is setting loose on a shelf screwed to new metal corbels in the case, and is sensitive to position for the door to close. The minute and hour hands are original, but are lacking their chamfered retaining washers {relatively easy to make}; seconds hand has been made from a calendar hand, however proper replacements are available from Timesavers. There is a recess on top of the case that originally held batteries; Finish on the golden oak case is original. Ht

French, unusual conical clock, date unknown.
CONDITION: this is a tough clock to figure. The pendulum length is about right for it to keep approximate time, And the unusual motif shows a compass over a globe, with equatorial bands. The problem is, you can not wind the clock without dis-engaging the pendulum and tilting the globe upward to expose the winding arbor. Most French clocks are better designed than this. Ht 25"

English, double fusee 8-day movement C.1850, now in a C.1975 home made case of tiger maple veneer over plywood.
CONDITION: generally sound and running. This cabinet maker may not have been a clock person, buy he knew what he liked and chose some very attractive tigered veneer to cover the plywood carcass. His joints are tight, and he strung with a darker wood at all seams. Gong is screwed to the rear door. Movement is attached to the composite dial which gives the appearance of an 18th century clock with a 19th C beveled glass door. Brass chapter ring is engraved and black wax is failing. Ht 15.5"

Gisholt Machine Co., Madison, WI, PERIODOGRAPH, a weight driven programmable contact maker, with an E. Howard #70 movement and pendulum to power the program discs, in an oak case with black/gold tablet in the front door. C.1919.
CONDITION: this is another of the HEAVY items from Blue Ball, Pennsylvania. We have not had one of these before, but we see that Stiles Auction sold one last year for $300+. We could guess the movement and pendulum should be worth that amount. Gisholt surely designed this to last 200 years, and this looks mechanically complete and sound; ticks. Suspension spring is still good, but came out of its notch when we tied it down; mov't signed. Ht 43"

Seth Thomas "OFFICE CALENDAR No. 5", in walnut with burled panels, double dial perpetual calendar, 14 inch dials, weight driven, C.1890 [dated presentation]
CONDITION: The original finish on the case has been rubbed out to a nice sheen; the grain is still closed and beautiful. This clock was retailed by G. W. Sayer of Spencer, Mass and was a presentation gift to "Goodwill Lodge No. 181, IOOF, Feb 25th, 1890 by Member's Unity Circle", so engraved on silvered plaque at center of door. The dealer, Sayer hung and checked out the clock in Jan of 1890, so indicated on their card tacked inside door. And with the instruction sheet from Seth Thomas indicating that the calendar was set for the year 1888. The rollers have been recovered and both dials were repainted some time ago. The wood screws pulled out for the iron mov't bracket & the wall hanger, and have been replaced with machine screws [not a bad idea for something this heavy]. Has near perfect inside labels & great damascene pendulum [nickel finish on pend and reflectors]. Note the large trapezoid movement is similar to that in the Office No. 8 calendar, except it is 72 beat instead of 60 beat. Tran Ly has several references on the No. 5, including a foto of the movement in the 2nd edition St, page 435, and the clock shown in 3rd Edition, page 94. 2004 price guide = $18,000. Ht 50"

E. Howard & Co., MARBLE DIAL No. 30, made for public use over large passage ways, 8-day weight driven, from South Station [?], with F/S adjust above 12. C.1880.
CONDITION: overall excellent original condition. There is one minor chip on the bottom edge of the dial and an old hairline at the left attaching hole, otherwise the dial is original and outstanding. Many articles have been written about the tower clock on the front facade of South Station, Boston, but this particular clock came from inside the station, over a large interior doorway, removed around 1985. We have been unable to find a foto to verify this, however it seems reasonable. The fact that the original dial paint is so well preserved shows that this did likely set over one of the 14 foot high doorways, and was thus only reachable by the weekly winder. The wooden portions retain their original finish, with a century of dirt and grime, still glossy where protected by the dial. See Howard 1874 catalog for details on this model.

English, Martin Ellwood, Londini Fecit, uncommon & desirable 10 inch brass dial quarter striking movement, 8-day, in an attractive, well proportioned, purpose made tall case with book matched burled walnut veneer, cross banded panels on the sides, and barley twist columns to the hood. The large & robust movement has finely turned baluster pillars, count wheel on the rear plate {cut to strike the quarter hours} on two bells, the hours on a single bell. This is an unusual feature not commonly found on clocks of this period. The dial features a calendar aperture at 6, exquisitely matted center with finely ringed winding holes, a seconds ring and finely pierced hands of the period. C.1690.
CONDITION: overall excellent condition. The warning arm needs adjusting, as the mov't want to strike just once every 15 minutes, even when on the hour section of the count wheel. The case has been nicely veneered over an oak carcass, and is handsomely polished to a warm tone. The door, the pendulum aperture, iron hinges, & key lock are made in the proper style. No detail was overlooked in making this case, including a rising hood with latch as it would have been in this period. Britten's lists Martin Ellwood as "a great-clock maker" in London from 1680 to 1700. A complete and original clock from this period would sell for $30,000+. Ht 78"

CONDITION: Mr. Goddard has not replaced the missing idler roller for which there are holes and an arbor on one side of the movement, rather he substituted a home-made roller screwed to the right side of the case, which doesnt leave enough room for the pulley and weight.

CONDITION: Condition: Partially stripped walnut case with a little damage at the very top piece. Original paper dial has age darkened with wear. Hands, pendulum and tablet are original. Case has an unusual alarm that runs in place of the strike side of the movement rather than having a separate small movement. The alarm is set to the silent mode by a button on the side of the case, working through a flat spring. This looks to be a variation of "Winward's" new eight-day railway "alarum", converted in England; we have sold these before, this one with slightly different shut off, and absent Winward label. As long as you shut if off after 2 minutes, the alarm can be wound weekly. Movement is signed ST. Ht 23"
