Welch Khedive - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Over the years we've only had a couple of this much sought-after model from E.N. Welch to sell. Most that we've seen have been in oak. This one is substantially better looking in mahogany and comes with the exposed escapement dial and with the original gilding on the beveled glass panel that the pendulum hangs behind.

Physical: The mahogany case measures 12"w x 17.5"h x 4.5"d and retains its original finish. There is a very small and typical hairline crack between V-VI on the 4.5" diameter original porcelain dial with exposed escapement. A Q-tip with a little bleach on it will lighten the crack and make it less visible.


Mechanical: The catalogue describes this "Patti" movement as, " Fine solid steel cut movement, hour and half-hour strike, cathedral bell, visible escapememt, jeweled pallets." The movement in this clock has recently been professionally serviced and is in excellent running order. The wide, flat cathedral gong produces a deep resonant tone as it strikes on the half hour and hour.

Comments: These don't come along often and always sell quickly, so make your move if you've been seeking either this specific model or a fancy small shelf clock of the highest quality.

Packing/Shipping: The UPS Store will pack and ship this clock for you – you pay them directly for their services. This particular store has LOTS of clock-packing experience.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 in Mahogany
circa April 1892

Seth Thomas Regulator No 2 - Original Catalogue Drawing 1904 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Catalogue Photo - 1881

 

Here is a fine example of the much sought-after Regulator No. 2 that was widely used in commercial applications, and especially popular with the railroads, though we do not know the provenance of this particular clock. This Seth Thomas model is in harder-to-find mahogany and is in excellent physical and mechanical condition as you will see in the photos below.

Physical: The mahogany case with original finish measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 5"d. The 12" dial is in excellent condition and bears the original paint. There is a small ding on the outer edge of the dial around #8 that we would not have noticed had not the consignor pointed it out to us. There is a remnant original label (very dark) in the inside bottom of the case
. The dial support board is present.

The brass weight and pendulum are both original to the clock as are the hands and glass. The stencil on the back indicates a manufacture date of April 1892.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-only, movement with deadbeat escapement and maintaining power was just professionally cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent running condition.

Comments: Great clock. Foundational to any serious collection and a great addition to any room just as a simple decorator piece. Because of its special color, when we first saw it we thought this was cherry. Beautiful clock in either wood! Give us a call to start the process.

Gazo Monterey “Maiden of Love”
in Alder with Dark Walnut Stain

Gazo Monterey “Maiden of Love” in Alder with Dark Walnut Stain ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From Pacific Northwest

(original catalogue)

 

Here's what the original Gazo Family Clock Factory catalogue said about this model: "Handsome wall clock, entirely hand-carved with sculptured 'Maiden of Love' headpiece. Porcelain and solid brass etched dial with brass grid and pendulum bob to match, beveled glass door."

sIt's a lot of clock, so take a close look.

Physical: The c.1981 alder case with beveled glass and walnut finish measures 20"w x 60"h x 10"d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see from the photos below. The etched brass dial with porcelain cartouche numerals is original and in excellent condition as are the hands and bob.

Mechanical: The eight-day triple-chime movement is original to the case and in good running order. It chimes on the quarter hours and strikes on the hour. This clock features both the traditional Westminster, Whittington and St Michael's chime tunes. You can hear the chime tunes in our Reference Library via the link at the beginning of this paragraph.

Comments: We don't see the larger Gazo wall clocks very often. Most of them never make it to our site once we find them as we always seem to have people waiting for one or families just hang on to them. Here's your opportunity for a lovely maiden to enter your life! Prettiest of this model that we've ever seen.

E. Howard Regulator No. 41 in Black Walnut

E. Howard Regulator No. 41 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Like many of its other regulator models, E. Howard & Co. made this seldom-seen model in five different sizes ranging up to six feet in length. This one at four feet is a little more manageable in most settings. Take a close look as it's a beauty and the only one we've had in nearly twenty years in business!

Physical: The black walnut case, which measures 16"w x 48"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition and retains the original finish. Different woods react differently in how they reflect or absorb the camera flash. The lower midsection appears lighter, but if you take a look a the photos labeled "lower" (and "lower left" in particular), you will see that the wood blends with the rest of the case. Odd little fact!

The 9" diameter dial was repainted at some point in the past, long before the present owner purchased the clock. It is in excellent physical condition. The glass tablet is original and in excellent condition as is the damascened pendulum bob. There is a wonderful original label inside at the top of the door.

Mechanical: The eight-day deadbeat, maintaining-power mechanism was recently professionally cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The sign
ed E. Howard movement is stamped with a "4" and the same numeral is cast into the original weight.

Comments: This is one of those serious collector "statement pieces". Physically it is very conservative, yet its elegance is reflective of the best of both the cabinet- and clock-making crafts. We'll be happy to assist with shipping arrangements with one of our blanket-wrap specialists. Please give us a call to initiate the process... thanks in advance.

Ansonia "Utopia" - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue drawing)

 

Perhaps the most sought after of the Ansonia crystal regulators is the "Utopia" model. This is only the second one we've had available to us in our nearly twenty years of online service to the clock-collecting community. And this fully restored clock is an absolute beauty, complete with original cut glass crystal columns.

Physical: The brass case, which measures 8.75"w x 17"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition. All of the small parts were removed and polished or re-plated as needed and all sealed with clear lacquer to preserve the finish. It is a truly stunning clock. The 4" porcelain dial with exposed escapement is in excellent condition and, like the pendulum, also original to the clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-gong-strike movement has just been professionally overhauled including replacing both winding springs. It is in excellent mechanical condition, ready for years of great service.

Comments: Been seeking the best of the best of crystal regulators? Here is one just waiting for that special place in your home or office. Give us a call to start the process.

(original catalogue drawing)

 

We don't often have the large Seth Thomas (deep dish) gallery clocks, though we recently sold one with a 24" diameter dial in oak (most we've seen are oak). We're delighted to offer this beautiful mahogany-cased clock for your consideration. This model first appeared in the 1884 catalogue and last in the 1924 catalogue. The number stamped into the movement dates this one at 1913.

Physical: The mahogany case with original finish measures 25.5" w x 6.5" d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see.

The signed 18" dial, which has the original paint, is also in excellent physical condition and has the original hands. There is a label in very good condition on the inside back just behind the pendulum (which is also original).

Mechanical: The 30-day, double-spring Seth Thomas No. 86U mechanism has been cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The 86-series was the workhorse of the Seth Thomas spring-driven mechanisms and used in its industrial-application clocks including time-recorders that they manufactured and private-labeled for many firms including ITR (IBM), Simplex, Bundy and Cincinatti.

Comments: This is a great clock that will bring a sense of class wherever it is hung, whether in your home or office. Only needing to wind it once a month is a feature that you will quickly appreciate!
