E. Howard Regulator No. 41 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Like many of its other regulator models, E. Howard & Co. made this seldom-seen model in five different sizes ranging up to six feet in length. This one at four feet is a little more manageable in most settings. Take a close look as it's a beauty and the only one we've had in nearly twenty years in business!

Physical: The black walnut case, which measures 16"w x 48"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition and retains the original finish. Different woods react differently in how they reflect or absorb the camera flash. The lower midsection appears lighter, but if you take a look a the photos labeled "lower" (and "lower left" in particular), you will see that the wood blends with the rest of the case. Odd little fact!

The 9" diameter dial was repainted at some point in the past, long before the present owner purchased the clock. It is in excellent physical condition. The glass tablet is original and in excellent condition as is the damascened pendulum bob. There is a wonderful original label inside at the top of the door.

Mechanical: The eight-day deadbeat, maintaining-power mechanism was recently professionally cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The sign
ed E. Howard movement is stamped with a "4" and the same numeral is cast into the original weight.

Comments: This is one of those serious collector "statement pieces". Physically it is very conservative, yet its elegance is reflective of the best of both the cabinet- and clock-making crafts. We'll be happy to assist with shipping arrangements with one of our blanket-wrap specialists. Please give us a call to initiate the process... thanks in advance.

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Perhaps the most sought after of the Ansonia crystal regulators is the "Utopia" model. This is only the second one we've had available to us in our nearly twenty years of online service to the clock-collecting community. And this fully restored clock is an absolute beauty, complete with original cut glass crystal columns.

Physical: The brass case, which measures 8.75"w x 17"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition. All of the small parts were removed and polished or re-plated as needed and all sealed with clear lacquer to preserve the finish. It is a truly stunning clock. The 4" porcelain dial with exposed escapement is in excellent condition and, like the pendulum, also original to the clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-gong-strike movement has just been professionally overhauled including replacing both winding springs. It is in excellent mechanical condition, ready for years of great service.

Comments: Been seeking the best of the best of crystal regulators? Here is one just waiting for that special place in your home or office. Give us a call to start the process.

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here We don't often have the large Seth Thomas (deep dish) gallery clocks, though we recently sold one with a 24" diameter dial in oak (most we've seen are oak). We're delighted to offer this beautiful mahogany-cased clock for your consideration. This model first appeared in the 1884 catalogue and last in the 1924 catalogue. The number stamped into the movement dates this one at 1913.

Physical: The mahogany case with original finish measures 25.5" w x 6.5" d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see.

The signed 18" dial, which has the original paint, is also in excellent physical condition and has the original hands. There is a label in very good condition on the inside back just behind the pendulum (which is also original).

Mechanical: The 30-day, double-spring Seth Thomas No. 86U mechanism has been cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The 86-series was the workhorse of the Seth Thomas spring-driven mechanisms and used in its industrial-application clocks including time-recorders that they manufactured and private-labeled for many firms including ITR (IBM), Simplex, Bundy and Cincinatti.

Comments: This is a great clock that will bring a sense of class wherever it is hung, whether in your home or office. Only needing to wind it once a month is a feature that you will quickly appreciate!

We are fortunate to have this not-often-seen Waterbury calendar clock for your consideration. It's simple, classic lines and solid visual appearance make it very attractive to everyone who sees it. We're confident you will agree.

Physical: The oak case, which measures 16"w x 40.5"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition and has the original finish. There is wood filler by a couple of the clock dial screws that is not visible and covered by the bezel. The glass has likely been replaced at some point in the past.

The 8" diameter signed dials have the original paint and are in excellent, age-appropriate condition. Both dials have the Waterbury logo and the perpetual calendar dial also has the company name and patent dates. The calendar roller papers appear original.

There are three labels on the clock, one inside that is dark and aged, and two on the back that you can see in the left-hand column.

Finally, the clock has its original key!

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-gong-strike clock movement has been cleaned and serviced and is in excellent running condition. The perpetual calendar mechanism has been adjusted and also is in excellent running condition.

Comments: This is a wonderful piece with lots of detail in the case but not a visually overwhelming amount. A
just right" example of Victorian-era design. Call us to make it your own!

Gilbert “Star Drop”, c.1895

Gilbert "Star Drop" - 1895 Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue)

 

Here's a beautiful clock that we've only seen once before, the Gilbert "Star Drop". It was made in two versions, the earlier in 1881 being much plainer and less interesting than this version from Gilbert's 1895 catalogue. It originally sold for $10.50 in this configuration; it's a little more expensive 120 years later!

Physical: The walnut case measures 18" w x 32.5"h x 4" d and is in excellent condition with the original finish. The 12" paper dial is also original in excellent condition. The bezel has is stamped with "Pat Mar 21 '76". Hands and stenciled "Owl Glass" are original to the clock. Gotta love the wise old owl... kinda reminds us of a retired CPA client of ours in the Midwest – wise old dude out to roost!

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only movement has just been cleaned and professionally serviced and is in excellent running order. The feet of the movement have been rotated slightly to deal with stripped-out holes in the backboard from servicing over the last 120+ years.

Gilbert "Star Drop" ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Comments: Wonderful, unusual clock that will put a smile on the face of anyone who sees it. Would be great in a kitchen or family room. Give us a call to ensure it's your home to which it is destined to go... Hoo, Hoo!

Ithaca Belgrade Shelf Clock ~ Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Here is an opportunity to own a seldom-seen but very popular "No. 5 1/2 Ithaca Belgrade" model. As you can see in the catalogue drawings above, it was made in both shelf and hanging versions with an attractive and unusual wood pendulum. The clock was made in both walnut and ash, though the only ones we've seen were in ash as is this very good example of the species.

Physical: The ash case measures 14"w x 37"h x 7"d. It is in very good overall physical condition with original finish. There is a small blemish on the upper left and lower front right corners; and there has been a small repair on the upper right corner. The 8" diameter paper dials on this model are often black, or have been replaced as the black dials were easily scratched (and tended to look awful). However, these are original factory white dials. The glass is also original.

Oftentimes, people have converted a shelf version of this clock into the hanging version. This clock started life as a hanging version as evidenced by the rear stabilizer hanger at the bottom (see photo of back of clock taken in the shop with the base off the clock).

There is an instruction label on the back that is in excellent physical condition. it looks old, but the date hast been marked over so we're not 100% certain, and two of the corners appear to have been trimmed; hard to say. The covers on the calendar rollers are nice originals.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-strike clock movement has recently been cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The calendar mechanism has also been adjusted and is operating correctly.
