Ships From Iowa

Over their many years in business, the Herschede Hall Clock Company made a vast array of tallcase clocks. In their last few years (1970-1980 era), when the Herschede family was still running the company, they produced several high-end models, the most publicized of which was the Model 250.

More elegant, and definitely more understated (how's that for a double negative?), were the Edinburgh (247) and Wellington (248) models that shared the same case. Both are challenging to find. The Edinburgh, in our opinion, like the 250, was a little over-the-top with trim, having heavy leaded panels in both the side and front glasses. Here's our favorite of the three:

Physical: The mahogany and crotchwood mahogany case, remnant of the graceful Sheraton period of English furniture design, measures 25"w x 86"h x 16"d is in excellent physical condition. One notable thing about this model is that it will fit nicely in any room with an eight-foot ceiling. Traditional brass mullions ornament the inside of the trunk door. The 10.5" diameter silvered dial with hand-engraved gold-plated spandrels, raised numerals and moon dial are all in excellent original condition. Weights, pendulum and glasses are also original and in excellent condition.

Mechanical: The eight-day, nine-tube movement, (tubes are nickel-plated) was professionally serviced in August 2017 and is in excellent running condition. It plays Westminster, Whittington, and Canterbury tunes, all of which you can read about and hear in our Reference Library article on clock chime tunes.

Comments: This elegant clock will make a wonderful statement in your entry, or perhaps a special corner in your living room. Give us a call to start the purchase process. We'll make the blanket-wrap shipping arrangement right to your door.

Sessions "Star Pointer" Calendar - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here is a clock we've not had before,, one that was configured both in time (or time-and-strike) mode and also as a time and time-and-strike calendar, which is the configuration of this particular lovely clock.

Physical: The oak case, which measures 18"w x 32.5"h x 4.875"d is in excellent physical condition. At some time in the past it appears to have been overcoated and a fine job was done at that time. The signed 12" diameter dial is original to the clock, in excellent age-appropriate condition. The pendulum and glasses are also original to the clock as are the hands.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-strike mechanism has recently been cleaned, lubricated and adjusted and is in excellent mechanical condition, keeping good time The calendar function operates correctly as well.

Comments: This is a beautiful clock that might be a great fit in your kitchen or family room... or your home study for that matter. Priced right and will be a long term keeper for you.

Catalogue Drawing -1930s Waltham Banjo - Antique Clocks Guy

 

We are pleased to present for your consideration a 90s-era bench-made banjo that is a faithful reproduction of a seldom-seen 1930s Waltham banjo model.

Physical: The mahogany case with hand-carved trim is in excellent physical condition with original finish, nicely aged. It measures approximately 11"w x 40"h x 4"d. The original tablets are of the highest quality and in excellent physical condition. Though their design does not match the catalogue drawing, the manufacturer used a variety of glasses within any given model. We believe they were done by Lee Davis. The convex dial measures 6" in diameter and has matching convex glass in the bezel. It
has darkened a little with minor staining.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, signed Howard weight-driven movement was recently serviced and is in excellent mechanical condition.
It is stamped on the front plate: "Howard, Waltham, Mass.".

Comments: Arthur Edward Wallmark
(6/
28/1924 - 01/29/2002) last lived in Huntingtown MD according to his obituary. He had six children and seven brothers and sisters! Clearly, he was a skilled craftsman.

This is an absolutely beautiful clock just begging for that special place in your home. Priced right, too!

(orig catalogue)

 

Chelsea Clock Company is synonymous with the highest quality in factory clockmaking. Here is a fine example for your consideration. "Base and Ball Feet" was the original name for a style that has persisted through the years in the Chelsea catalogues. In 1917 this model was renamed the "Commodore" and subsequently the "Constitution", which is still manufactured today (but with a quartz movement). This ship-strike model is a fine example of their early production. The 6" dial is signed "J.E. Caldwell & Co.", the Philadelphia retailer who first sold this clock.

Physical: The brass case, which is in excellent physical condition, measures 8.5"w x 9"h x 3"d. Correct Chelsea key is included.

Mechanical:
The eight-day ship-strike movement has just been serviced and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: Wonderful Chelsea at a great price just serviced and ready for years of great service for you. Call us to start the process.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 4 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Original Catalogue Drawing

 

One of the "workhorse" clocks of the Seth Thomas line was Regulator No. 4, generally used in railroads, schools, or industry, but this one has come through the whole process pretty much unscathed; must've led a very charmed life!

Physical: The oak case, which measures 18"w x 42"h x 6.75"d is in excellent physical condition and retains the original finish with some alligatoring (typical). The 12" diameter dial is in excellent condition with original paint. It has the original pulley, weight, pendulum and glass.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, weight-driven, retaining-power, 72-beat No. 77D movement is the same that was used in the popular Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 that you can see in our Reference Library, but this is the model with the cut pinions, much sought after by serious collectors.

The movement in this clock was just professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition - ready for many additional years of workhorse service!


Comments: Many of us like plain wood clocks without a lot of fru-fra on them. This is an elegant example of Seth Thomas simplicity of design. The last four of this model that we had in the past sold very quickly. Shouldn't this one be yours?

Gilbert Amphion on Matching Original Shelf = Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is an opportunity to own a fairly rare combination of original clock and original matching shelf, both in pristine original condition. Take a close look at the photos below as you may not again see such a clock and shelf combination available anywhere in the marketplace. This clock was purchased 20 years ago at an antique store in Lexington NE.

Physical: The walnut clock on the shelf measures 35"h x 21"w x 7.75"d. The clock itself measures 25"h x 17"w x 5"d. Both are in excellent physical condition with the original finish. The 6" paper dial is also original to the clock.

Note the carved crest with fleur-de-lis and shield center and scrolled side crests with spherical embellishments on top. It has etched mirrors on either side of the fancy etched door with arched top and mirror below. The clock and shelf also feature original glasses, mirrors, and fancy cut-glass pendulum.

Mechanical: The 8-day time-and-gong-strike movement has just been cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. It strikes once on the half hour and subsequently strikes the hours.
