Original Catalogue Drawing - Waltham “Pattern 64” Tallcase ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue)

 

We are exceptionally pleased to offer this significant tallcase clock for your consideration. Originally retailed by the well-known Boston jeweler Smith Patterson Company, this clock has just finished being refurbished in our restoration shop and is ready to grace the entry of your home or office. A perusal of the eighteen photos below will be convincing.

Smith Patterson Company was a fine quality jeweler comparable to Tiffany in New York. They were agents and importers of sterling and other jewelry items such as fine pocket watches and were eventually merged with the Jordan Marsh department store. Like Tiffany they retailed the highest quality clocks that were made by renowned clock makers and private-labeled under the Smith Patterson name.

Founded by M.N. Smith and Henry Winthrop Patterson as Smith & Patterson (1885-1895), the firm was in business until at least 1941.

Smith Patterson contracted with the American Watch Co., Waltham to produce some watches bearing the Smith Patterson name. They likely had watches private-labeled by other watch manufacturers as well. In addition, our research has turned up a banjo clock with the Smith Patterson signature and movement signed by Waltham as well as ship’s bell clock by Chelsea with the Smith Patterson signature on the dial.

Smith Patterson Building - Corner Summer & Hawley Sts. Boston ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Physical:The Mahogany case, with swan neck pediment and carved acorn center finial measures 29”w x 102”h x 20”d. It features half-fluted solid columns with wooden capitals and bases.

The waist area has fine detailed carvings above and below the door while the side columns are a larger version of the hood columns. The base has a beautiful carved center panel offset by a relief center panel. The feet are in the form of a ram’s horns and hoofs. As a side note, this cabinet was apparently also made in oak with solid columns on the hood and waist. On some of those cases the center finial was replaced with three wood finials, though we do not have a photo or illustration of that configuration.

Interestingly, this same case was also used by high-end clockmaker Walter H. Durfee from 1892 to 1900 as their Pattern 16 (see NAWCC Watch & Clock Bulletin, July/August 2013, p.382-383). Waltham catalogues of 1905 show their use of this same case as Pattern 16. Herschede was making the cases for both Durfee and Waltham during this era.

This case was recently professionally restored. Previously, it had been poorly over-coated so that layer was removed in the finish restoration process by our restoration shop of old-world masters. The fabric in the hood and on the backboard was replaced with appropriate new red fabric. All glass and wood are original. The 12” diameter dial is original and in excellent physical condition as is the hand-painted moon dial. The weights and pendulum are original.

Mechanical:
The eight-day chiming No. 50 Waltham-stamped movement is original to the clock. It was recently cleaned and restrung with stainless steel cable and is in excellent mechanical condition. It chimes Westminster or Whittington tunes on the quarter hours and strikes the hours. The chime tubes are also stamped with the Waltham mark.

Comments: Please take time to carefully review the photos below. They tell the story of a truly graceful clock that has enjoyed exceptional care over the last 116 years. As you look at the photos, picture how wonderful it would look as a greeting to your family and guests in the entry of your home or office... or perhaps in the corner of the den. We'll let you make the decorating choices!

Shipping: We will assist making arrangements with one of our blanket-wrap movers to deliver the clock, then you pay them directly for their services.

To our eye, this particular clock has an almost iridescent look to it on close examination... it's gorgeous. Like many Royal Bonns, this model had numerous paint configurations.

The Gazo "Coronado" (named for a harbor-front San Diego community) and "San Marcos" (named for the neighboring community in which the Clock Guy lives) were the most popular models made by the Gazo Family Clock Factory. Here is a great example for your consideration:

Physical: The dark red oak case, which measures 17"w x 40"h x 11"d, is in excellent condition with the original finish. It has just been thoroughly cleaned and waxed and looks great!

The 8" diameter etched brass dial with cartouche porcelain numerals bears the Gazo signature, as does the inside of the door ("Gazo"). The beautiful cast brass "Swan" pendulum and leaded "fern glass" door add to the ambience of this clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day rod-chiming movement has just been professionally serviced by our technician and is in excellent running order. It plays Westminster and Ave Maria
chimes and can also be switched off if you wish.


Comments: This beautiful clock is small enough to go in a hallway or a kitchen, yet grand enough to adorn an entry. The rich, resonant chime tone will charm everyone. The photos below tell the story better than we can with words. The following chapter is your phone call to us to make it your own!

Ship From So. CA

We are pleased to offer for your consideration a pristine Chelsea Ship's Bell clock that was made in 1918 (s/n 125209) and retailed by Charles C. Hutchinson in Boston.

As a young man Charles C. Hutchinson served as an apprentice to F.W. Lincoln, Jr., a nautical instrument maker, math instructor, and great-grandson of Paul Revere, and later, mayor of Boston. F.W. Lincoln and Company was located at 62 then 136 Commercial St in Boston.

In 1858 Hutchinson became a partner with Lincoln and the business moved to 126 Commercial St. By 1883 Hutchinson bought out the business and renamed it Chas. C. Hutchinson Nautical Instruments. The business imported and sold nautical and surveying instruments, charts, marine glasses, telescopes and flags. It was located at 154 State Street from 1893 until 1932, when it moved to 175 State Street opposite the Custom House.

How great is it to have such a history to go with your eminent purchase!

Physical: The red bronze case, which measures 10"w x 9.75"h x 5"d has been polished and lacquered and is in excellent physical condition. The serial number stamped on the back of the case matches the serial number that is stamped into the back of the movement. The 6" silvered dial is in excellent physical condition; hands are original, too, and the clock will be shipped with a correct Chelsea key.

Mechanical: The eight-day ship's bell movement has just been professionally serviced by a jeweler and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is one of the most beautiful ship's clocks we've ever offered. We look forward to your call to make purchase arrangements.

Ship From So. CA

(original catalogue drawing)S

 

American clockmakers, in general, made very few 30-day clocks; this one by the Waterbury Clock Co. is an exception to that rule and quite rare. We've never seen this model in our nearly 23 years in business, let alone in a 30-day configuration.

Physical: The
walnut case, surmounted by a beautiful and detailed crown and flanked by fluted columns, measures 22"w (crown) x 52"h x 9"d is in excellent physical condition. It bears the original finish and original finials. Likewise, the signed 10' dial is in excellent, age-appropriate condition and bears the original paint.

Mechanical: The 30-day, spring-driven movement is was recently cleaned and adjusted and is in excellent mechanical condition, ready for years of enjoyment.

Comments: It's always fun to find a clock of classical American style that others don't also own. And, so often clocks of similar size were made primarily in oak, so finding a beauty that's walnut is a secondary bonus. Give us a call to make it your own!
