Ansonia Delft Porcelain “La Rive” ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From CA

Ansonia Royal Bonn "LaCapelle" Delft ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is one of the sought-after Ansonia clocks in a porcelain case with "Delft" decoration. The history of each of these firms is linked in the previous sentence and makes for interesting reading material. It is interesting to note that numerous pattern configurations were made for numerous Ansonia models as you can see here with the floral catalogue design; but even that design was likely made in multiple colors and configurations and with different dial options.

Physical: The beautiful Delft porcelain case is in excellent original condition. It measures 9.5"w x 17.75"h x 5"d. The 5" diameter porcelain dial is in excellent condition and has floral designs between the numerals. It is signed Ansonia Clock Co. NY, USA. The hands are correct and original. There is a slow/fast adjustment just above the numeral 12.

Mechanical: The eight-day time and bell-strike movement with exposed escapement and jeweled pallets has been recently professionally serviced and is in excellent running order.

Comments: We strive to find great items at fair prices for our clients. This model was recently seen in a very high-end antique center priced at $3,250. Ours is a little more reasonable... and waiting for your call.

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 4 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA


(original catalogue drawing)

 

This is a c.1888 Seth Thomas calendar model that we've not had available to us in the past and which, previously, we've not seen. Its graceful lines and wonderful colors are extremely attractive and will draw attention wherever it is placed in a room.

Physical: The polished walnut and burled case measures 15.5"w x 25"h x 5"d and is in excellent physical condition and original finish. The 8" diameter dials are in excellent condition and appear to have the original paint with a touchup to the signature on the clock dial. There is an original label on the back of the door between the glasses and another behind the calendar movement on the backboard.

Mechanical: The eight-day cup bell-strike movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order. The calendar mechanism, designed by R.T. Andrews is also in excellent running order.

Comments: This is a great clock that will be an attention-getter in your home or office. A phone call will suffice to start the purchase process...

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 1  circa 1886 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 1, c.1886 – Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Interestingly, Seth Thomas made five different versions of what they labeled "Regulator No. 1". This is the third of the five, circa 1886 that uses the basic Regulator No. 2 case, with the addition of pair of finials on the bottom similar to those on Regulator No. 3. Confused yet? (Keep reading!)

Physical: The rosewood and walnut veneer case, which measures approximately 15.5"w x 34"h x 5" d is in excellent physical condition. The finish has been rubbed out and waxed. The glass is original as is the beautiful damascened pendulum and the weight, which have been re-nickled along with the bezel by the highest-end specialty plating company in So CA; all are in excellent physical condition. The dial was professionally repainted in 1977 by the famous Martha Smallwood of The Dial House in Georgia.

Our consignor suggests that perhaps this clock was assembled on a Monday as the original label is on the backboard instead of in the usual place in the inside base of the clock. We've seen this configuration previously but only on Regulator No. 3 and not often.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, deadbeat, maintaining-power, movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition – ready for years of great service.

Comments: Beautiful clock that's a great piece of what we call the "Regulator 2" story. Perhaps over time you'll be fortunate to own each of these No. 1 models. Certainly, this one's a great start. Give us a call to start the purchase process.

Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 1 in Rosewood ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

We don't see these large office calendars very frequently. Like much of the weight-driven Seth Thomas inventory in the country, they have slowly been drawn into serious collections and are not released often. So here's your opportunity!

Physical: The burled rosewood case is in excellent condition. It was refinished at some point in the past and looks great. Many of these we've seen over the years have been missing veneer or had veneer peeling... this one's in excellent condition. The case measures 19.5"w x 40"h x approximately 6" d. There is also a great label inside the door with the original instructions as well as a service technician's card from a company dating back to 1925. The 12" clock and 14" calendar dials still bear the original paint, unusual on very old Seth Thomas clocks. The weight is also original.

Mechanical: The weight-driven time-only movement and calendar movement have been overhauled and are in excellent running order. The calendar roller papers are original.

Comments: If you've been thinking about owning a major American calendar clock, this is one of the most desirable. Its unique shape draws the immediate attention of anyone entering the room where it will surely dominate. We've seen these clocks sell at auction for significantly more; this one is really priced right and everything is correct. Give us a call to start the process.

E. Howard Regulator No. 89 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue drawing)

 

We haven't had an E. Howard & Sons Regulator No. 89 in a number of years. They seem to grow more scarce every year as collectors put them into permanent collections, lowering the supply to the marketplace (but raising the joy to the collectors)!

Generally used in industry, this clock is a little unusual as it has an original silvered dial instead of painted, and the "keyhole" glass is unusual to find on this model. Take a closer look at the photos and enjoy... before you call to make it your own.

Physical: The quartered oak cabinet with original finish measures 19.5"w x 65"h x 8.5"d, is in excellent overall condition. There are some (typical for industrial use) dings on the bottom, but you're not really going to stand on your head to admire this clock, are you? The 12" original silvered dial is in excellent physical condition. The damascened pendulum bob is original to the clock, with hold-down and in excellent condition. Imperfections are not notable in the glass, but the putty looks old. The gold-leafing on the pendulum stick appears to be original.

Mechanical: The signed, eight-day, time-only, deadbeat, retaining-power precision movement has just been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service in your home or office. The No. 1 weight is correct/original.

Comments: Fabulous big clock in wonderful condition. R U Ready 2? (!)

Gilbert “Latona”, c.1885

Gilbert “Latona”, c.1885 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

(original catalogue drawing)

 

(Seth Thomas "Garfield")

Here's Gilbert's nearly 100% knockoff of the extremely popular Seth Thomas "Garfield" model. They did an extraordinary job! We've not seen this model previously and found a perfect deal that will let us sell this for about half of what the comparable Seth Thomas clock costs in today's market.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 15.5"w x 30.5"h x 6.5"d is in excellent physical condition with original finish and original glass. The 8" paper dial was professionally replaced at some point in the past by the highly regarded Dial House in GA.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-strike, two-weight plus spring-driven clock has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition.

Gilbert apparently decided to uniquely hybridize the Seth Thomas movement concept and utilize two weights to drive the time side and a spring to drive the strike; very unusual configuration. The original catalogue said, "Both weights drive the time on this clock. The striker (only) is spring driven."

Comments: Very nice and interesting clock, unusual movement configuration at a great price... about half of the Seth "Garfield" model.

Gazo “Santa Maria” Monumental Wall Clock Original Catalogue ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue)

 

We've only had a few of this model before. Not sure how many the Gazo Family Clock Factory made, but it was limited. It's a heckuva clock and at a heckuva price, too - we save/you save! The cherub crown carving makes this a very attractive and desirable piece that draws immediate attention wherever it's hung.

Physical: This walnut-stained alder case measures 26.5"w x 84"h x 19"d and is in excellent physical condition having just been thoroughly cleaned and waxed. The (1977) case serial number is STM/0037/A, meaning it was the the 37th in the sequence of manufacturing and the "A" is for alder.

The original 9" diameter dial with applied porcelain (cartouche) numerals and cherub spandrels is in excellent condition. The weights and pendulum are original etched brass and in excellent condition.

As with all Gazo clocks, there is a tremendous amount of detailed carving that we have documented in the photos below. Look at the closeup of the column pouncing... amazing old-world detail!

Mechanical: The high-quality eight-day chiming Keininger (German) movement is in excellent running order and was just professionally serviced. This clock is presently hanging here in our office and running well. It has a deep, resonant tone that makes you think you're hearing a big tallcase clock!

Shipping: This clock will be shipped using our blanket-wrap furniture mover. They are extremely reasonable and deliver directly from our door to yours. Get a lag bolt in the wall and they'll hang it there for you. We make the arrangements in your behalf and you pay them directly for their services.

Comments: If you're a Gazo collector you know what to do. If you've just been looking for a very large and impressive wall clock then take action. We've sold this model for as much as $8,500 in the past. You'd be hard-pressed to find many large wall clocks in this price range that come anywhere close to this one!

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 in Oak
with U.S. Post Office Markings

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 in Oak with U.S. Post Office Markings ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

(original catalogue)

 

Here is a first, an antique Seth Thomas Reg. No. 2 with "U.S. Post Office" screen-printed, above the center of the seconds subsidiary dial and at the bottom below the numeral "6". In addition, there are some numbers stamped into the edges behind the door (we don't know what they represent) and there was at one time (included) a metal serial number tag attached to the lower right hand corner of the case.

Regulator No. 2 was widely used in government, schools, railroad and other industrial applications, so it is not surprising that they might also have been used in some U.S. Postal locations.

Physical: The oak case, which appears to have the original finish, measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 5"d and is in good overall condition. There is a small ding in the molding on the lower right side near where the serial number tag was attached.

The dial is in excellent overall condition. It measures 12" in diameter and has the Seth Thomas signature along with the two postal markings indicated above. The little "tits" are all present on the base. The brass pendulum bob and weight appear original to the clock. There is a nice label in the inside base of the clock.

Mechanical: The eight, day, time-only, deadbeat, retaining-power movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order. This clock has the number 77 trapezoidal movement that is highly sought after by serious collectors.

Comments: Interesting clock and priced to move quickly.

Waterbury “Dewey/Manilla” Clock & Framed Print ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Waterbury “Dewey/Manilla” Clock & Framed Print ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA



George Dewey (December 26, 1837 – January 16, 1917) was an admiral of the United States Navy. He is best known for his victory at the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War. Admiral Dewey was also the only person in the history of the United States to attain the rank of Admiral of the Navy, the most senior rank in the United States Navy. He was so popular that even Dresden dolls were made with his likeness as you see to the left.

Here is an opportunity to own an An Admiral George Dewey commemo-rative clock, with a Spanish American War theme, manufactured by the Waterbury Clock Company, c.
1900. Interestingly, as Dewey was such a huge war hero, Waterbury made two versions of this clock, this one being the larger and longer running. They also made a smaller, 30-hour version (click to compare).

But wait, there's more! Also included with the clock is a framed "Rear Admiral George Dewey The Hero of Manila" print (litho?) by art publisher Arthur Nielen in a "Portraits of War Heros" series. The frame measures 29"h x 23"w and has old glass.

Physical: The brass clock case, which measures 11"w x 14"h x 3"d is in excellent original condition. It features a portrait of Dewey surmounted with "Dewey" and "Manila"; beside the dial are American flags. The lower case has crossed cannons, swords, and an anchor and cannon balls with a large American eagle holding what we believe, from tradition, is an olive branch. Note from the photo of the smaller clock that the two clocks have similar but different designs.

Mechanical: The fixed key-wind eight-day, spring-driven brass movement was recently professionally serviced and is in excellent running order

Comments: What an interesting pair! Have a Navy person in your family? Or just a fondness for historical items? Here it is. Give us a call to start the process.

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 9 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue drawing)

 

According to Wikipedia, "Victorian (era) design is widely viewed as having indulged in a grand excess of ornament." One need only drive down a street with old Victorian homes to make this observation for oneself. Certainly, clockmaking firms were no exception to this rule in their design of many Victorian era clocks. The Parlor Calendar No. 9, c. 1886, is perhaps the most "out there" Seth Thomas design. In all the years we have been dealing in clocks, this is only the second one of this model that we've ever physically seen. And this perpetual calendar clock is in wonderful original condition.

Physical:
The walnut case, which measures 17"w x 29.5"h x 7" has the original finish and has just been professionally poli
shed and waxed. The two outer rings on the crown are perfectly done replacements by a museum-quality restorer in Los Angeles.

There is a small older veneer re-glue (approximately 1/2" square) that is on the middle band on the right side. You literally have to be looking for it to notice. The dials have the original paint. There was some chipping that was retouched by Kathy Seiwert of the famous "Dial House" in Georgia. There is a directions label on the back side of the door in excellent condition and a calendar service instruction label behind the calendar mechanism.

Mechanical: The eight-day spring-driven time and cathedral-gong clock movement is original to the case and in excellent running order. The cathedral gong is a nice touch as it has a very deep, mellow sound, not "twangy" as with many shelf clocks. It was recently cleaned and fully overhauled. Here's the list we received from our technician of the work that was done to the clock movement: lever pivot straightened; other pivots polished as needed; eight bushings replaced; manufacture and install new arbor spring bushings in the front plate; polish plates, fit new suspension spring. The calendar mechanism, designed by R. T. Andrews, is original to the case and was cleaned and adjusted and set for leap year. It, too, is in excellent running order.

Comments: This is an important clock to any calendar collector. It's in excellent physical and mechanical condition and just needs a call from you to make it your own.
