Gustav Becker Grand Sonnerie
Vienna Regulator

Gustav Becker Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Gustav Becker Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Gustav Becker was one of the premier European clockmaking firms and its clocks are in high demand by collectors worldwide.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 17"w x 53"h x 7"d is in good physical condition with the exception of a ding in the lower left front molding (might be able to be steamed out) and a chip on the lower left side molding. Side glasses have been replaced (typical), but the front glass appears to be original. The 6.5" diameter silvered dial with etched brass center to match weights and pendulum has some small indentations around the center.

Mechanical: The eight-day grand sonnerie movement (serial number 211574, dating it around 1879) is in excellent running order and has just been professionally serviced. It has a rod-strike instead of coiled gong, which gives a much more mellow sound.

Comments: Pretty case and a great budget price.

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 5 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue)

 

Here is an opportunity to own a very original Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar clock at a very affordable price. Usually, we don't list the smaller clocks like this because it is very difficult to find them in acceptable and original physical condition; this one is a wonderful exception.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 12.5" w x 20"h x 5.5"d has the original finish and is in exceptional physical condition. The 8" diameter dials both have age-appropriate wear and are completely original with original paint. The hands and glass are original as well. There is a mostly-there directions label in side as well as the typical calendar label behind the mechanism.

Mechanical: The eight-day, spring-wound, time and cup-bell-strike movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition. The perpetual calendar mechanism is in excellent running order as well. The calendar roller covers are original as is the hand.

Comments: Extraordinarily clean little clock just waiting for you to decide it's time to pick up the phone and make it your own.

French Carriage Alarm Clock
with Original Red Leather Carrying Case

French Carriage Alarm Clock with Original Red Leather Carrying Case ~ Antique Clocks Guy

French Carriage Alarm Clock with Original Red Leather Carrying Case ~ Antique Clocks Guy

French Carriage Alarm Clock with Original Red Leather Carrying Case ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

This little carriage clock, similar to the "Boite Riche"-style (sans fluting), is a charmer. The original leather case is missing the strap that went from side-to-side over the top, but the hidden button that releases the top to open and hinge left is still in good working order. Also, many of these clocks that still have cases have lost the panel that covers the dial (and slips into a slot in the back of the case behind the clock itself; this one is present and accounted for. So is the original winding key, that fits in a slot on the left inside the case.

Physical: The leather case measures 3.5"w x 5"h x 3"d; the brass clock case itself measures 3"w x 4.5"h (5.75 with the handle up) x 2.25"d. The porcelain dial with alarm subsidiary dial measures 1.875" in diameter.

There are hairline cracks in the upper right corner of the dial that are much less apparent when it is in the case. The whole porcelain dial could be copied and a new one made for somewhere around $120.

We have enjoyed having the clock on the shelf here in the office just as it is. If you would like to have the dial replaced, we will connect you wit the resource. The clock is priced appropriately, and its value will increase significantly if you complete the restoration.

Mechanical: The eight-day cylinder escapement movement is running, but could probably use a good cleaning.

Comments: Nice little clock; not a lot of money. Great as it is now and would be wonderful restored: your choice.

Seth Thomas “Tradition 2W” Pillar & Scroll, c.1950

Seth Thomas “Tradition 2W” Pillar & Scroll, c.1950 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Here is a cute little clock that was in the 1950 catalogue. It is reminiscent of the early American pillar and scroll clocks of Eli Terry and many others. Nice thing about this clock is that it doesn't take up too much space, so will fit nicely almost anywhere.

Physical: The petite mahogany case, which measures 20"h x 10.5"w x 5.125"d, is in excellent original condition with original finish and paint on the case and dial. Solid brass finials and the pendulum are original, too.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-rod-strike movement has been professionally serviced and is in excellent running condition.

Comments: Nice clock for not a lot of money...
