Ansonia Regulator "A" - Original Catalogue Drawing

(0riginal Catalogue Drawing)

 

Over the years we've generally not had clocks this size and most of the Ansonia "Regulator A"s we've seen have been in oak and with a (crummy-sounding) wire gong for the strike.

Physical: The beautiful black walnut case measures 32"h x 17"w x 35"d and is in excellent physical condition. Clearly, it has led a charmed life over the last 114 or so years.
Lower glass original and possibly upper. Rubber stamp on back says: "16 Sep 1910" most likely the manufacture date.

The 11" diameter dial (original paper overlay) is in very good condition with a small scuff (age-appropriate) between VI and VII.

Mechanical: The original movement is in excellent running condition. We hung it here and it started right up. Subsequently, we opened it to lubricate and photograph the mechanism, which appears to be quite clean. It is keeping good time.

This clock has what was an upgrade not only for striking the half and hour, but also on a heavier gong instead of a thin coiled wire (then a $.40 option on a $10.90 clock – they're a little more expensive today)! As a result, it has a mellow striking sound.

Comments: Pretty clock, nice to have the black walnut (most were ash), runs well, priced right. How come you haven't already picked up the phone to call us? (!)

Gazo "San Marcos" in Dark Alder ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is the most popular of the Gazo Family Clock Factory wall clocks, named after the city of San Marcos, CA, which adjoins the community in which we live.

Physical: There is a tremendous amount of craftsmanship in this clock which made it the best-selling of all the Gazo models. The gorgeous dark alder case is in excellent physical condition and retains its original finish which was recently polished and waxed. It measures 15"w x 41"h x 10"d.

Gazo "San Marcos" in Dark Alder ~ Antique Clocks Guy

The 8" etched brass dial has "cartouche" porcelain numerals and is also in excellent original condition. The pendulum is original and correct. All five finials are in original excellent condition.

Mechanical: The movement was professionally serviced recently and is in excellent running order right here in our office. It features a "triple-chime" movement that plays Westminster, Whittington, and St. Michael's chimes on the quarter hours and strikes the hour after the chime (or you can turn the chime/strike off). The original cast brass pendulum is in excellent condition as is the cast brass "beat plate" below the pendulum.

Comments: These are wonderful clocks, prized by collectors across the country. Shouldn't this one be hanging proudly in your home or office? P.S. Priced right, too!

Gazo La Costa Early - Antitque Clocks Guy

Ship From San Diego County
(or pickup)

Here is a Family Clock Factory model that we've only seen a handful of times in our 26 years in business. Though it shares a common case with the Carmel and Monterey models, each has a different pediment. The "La Costa" model features the highly sought "North Wind" crest on the crown.

A Little Background: In Greek mythology, Boreas was the god of the north wind and bringer of cold winter air. In Roman mythology the north wind was represented by Aquilo and Septentrio. In Inuit mythology, Negafook represents "the North Wind" or, more eloquently, "the spirit that likes cold and stormy weather."

This style was quite popular during the late Victorian era and into the early 20th century. The North Wind was supposed to cast or "blow" evil spirits away. Got that? We have one client who, admittedly, is "north wind crazy", but his extensive collection is all oak; bummer!

Physical: The walnut-colored alder case, which measures 60"h x 20"w x 10"d is in excellent condition and features the original finish. Its serial number is LC/115/A (which makes it a "La Costa", the 115th in their production sequence, and made of Alder). There is a "Gazo '75" signature is engraved into the back of the door indicating its manufacture year along with a brass Gazo factory plate at the inside top of the door.

Mechanical: The eight-day time and rod-strike Jauch movement was completely overhauled and cleaned/lubricated/adjusted by our highly experienced Gazo technician. It is in excellent running order with a nice mellow chime tone. It plays the Westminster chime tune.

Comments: This is a big, beautiful clock – a lot for the money. Give us a call to make it your own.

Physical: Here's a spectacular big clock from the Gazo Family Clock Factory. The alder case measures 60"h x 16"w x 13"d and is great condition with original finish as you can seen in the photos below.

The front door features convex glass above and beveled glass below. There are also side glass panels through which you can see the inside of the cabinet and the mechanism. Note the beautiful original brass pendulum lyre, etched pendulum bob, and porcelain beat plate. And the wonderful hand-carved backboard behind the pendulum.

We put several day's work into cleaning and waxing the case – which, in our opinion, looks better than the day it left the factory!

The eight-inch etched brass dial features the Gazo name prominently as well as porcelain "cartouche"-style numerals that were common on later Gazo clocks.

Mechanical: The just-serviced movement is in excellent mechanical condition. It plays Westminster, Whittington and St. Michael's chime tunes on the quarter hours, followed by the hour strike on the hours which you can switch off, but it is a very mellow chime; you'll be charmed by the sound.

Comments: This is one of Gazo's most popular wall models just waiting for you with lots of hand-carved attention-to-detail. We don't see this model too often as families tend to keep and pass them between generations.

Shipping: We will arrange for blanket-wrap shipping – you pay the shipper directly; or you're welcomed to pick it up here.

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

(original catalogue drawing)
There were multiple versions of the original glass "tablet".

 

Here is a marvelous example of an early Seth Thomas Regulator 2. The case is rosewood and "grained" rosewood, and is in excellent overall condition. It's gorgeous!

The Seth Thomas Company manufactured clocks in Plymouth Hollow CT through 1864, when the "Hollow" was renamed "Thomastown" to honor the then-deceased Seth Thomas, who had been the primary employer in the area. In 1875 the town of Thomastown was officially incorporated.

It is difficult to know exactly when this clock was manufactured as it matches a catalogue drawing we have from 1879, though that is some fifteen years after the township name change. We believe it's earlier. Seth Thomas continued to use up parts inventory after the name change. It's all a mystery, but there's no mystery in saying this is a great example of the species!

Physical: The rosewood case, which appears to have the original finish and bubbly glass, measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 4.5"d and is in excellent overall condition.

The weight baffle, which slides up to reveal the weight, has the original label on it that is in excellent (age-appropriate) condition and is protected by a sheet of (removable) plastic. The (faded) "beat" marker on the inside bottom appears to be hand-drawn, typical of some very early clocks of this era.

The 12" painted dial is in excellent overall condition and also appears to have the original paint. There is a beautiful reverse-painted black and gilt lower glass (tablet).
Both glasses have (bubble) blemishes which leads us to believe they are original.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only deadbeat, retaining-power, weight-driven movement is in excellent running order and original to the clock.

Comments: This clock has been in our office and we can testify to its mechanical condition and time-keeping prowess. Priced right, too! Give us a call to start the process.

Ship From Escondido CA

Over the years we have sold many Gazo Family Clock Factory models in most styles, wood, and finish. But the Scottsdale is a seldom seen model. This is number 189 in their manufacturing sequence (S/N: SDR/189/A).

This stately model was patterned after the E. Howard Regulator No. 57 from the 1889 catalogue that would be worth between $50-75k today, if you could even find one. The similarity of design is amazing... but ours is a little less expensive!

(original catalogue)

 

E. Howard Regulator No. 57 ~ Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original E. Howard catalogue)

Physical: The hand-carved alder case with English walnut finish measures 22.5"w x 77"h x 10"d and is in excellent overall condition. Note the full turned and fluted columns that flank the trunk door, and the detailed carving that was the hallmark of Gazo clocks. It has just been thoroughly cleaned and polished and is in showroom condition. The brass standoffs that you see protruding from the lower sides have the original knurled knobs (but which are in a plastic bag at the moment and not in the photo).

The glass is beveled and also features the original "Scottsdale Regulator" lettering, unique amongst Gazo clocks. The large signed porcelain dial measures 13" in diameter and includes a seconds bit. The dial is original to the clock and in excellent physical condition. The pendulum and weight are original to the clock.

Mechanical: The weight-driven eight-day, single-weight, time-only movement is in excellent running order. This is the only Gazo model on which there was an electronic beat-regulator on the movement as it came from the factory. The purpose is to make the clock run as accurately as practical. There are three "C" cells that provide power to two pulsing electromagnets. You can see them in the photo of the movement behind the dial.

Comments: Several people have asked about the pendulum drop on this model. The clock case does not have a bottom, nor did it ever when shipped from the factory.
The pendulum will drop down into the base, at which point it will run out of cable and stop, ready to be wound every week.

Been looking for a majestic big wall clock with understated elegance and at a price you can afford? Then this would be the Gazo clock for you – not an ounce of garishness here – it's just stately. Give us a call to make it your own.

Shipping: We will arrange blanket-wrap moving for you with one of our reliable carriers. You pay them directly. The other option is for you to pick up the clock directly from us. With the crown off, it's 64.5" high and fits easily in the back of an SUV.
