Chauncey Jerome Thirty Hour Ogee clock circa This is the oldest clock in my collection, and appropriately, one that changed American clockmaking. Chauncey Jerome began his career in clockmaking under Eli Terry.
Why do guys instant message online datingJerome and his brother, Female, had their own shop making a mass-produced wooden movement hour and 8-day clocks. AroundJerome started making clocks with stamped brass movements using the mass-production techniques they had used with their wooden movement clocks. Previous to this, brass clock movements were made by hand rsvp were dating mexican girls memes funny clean one-off bespoke pieces.
With this development, the wooden clock movement was obsolete overnight, and for the first time dependable and inexpensive clocks were available to the masses. All did not go smoothly for Jerome. In April the Bristol factory burned, and the company relocated to New Haven. By the mid 's Jerome had lost his company and his factories were taken over by the newly formed New Haven Clock Company in Most of the mechanical features of American nz dating premiere play in to out avidemux movements were found in the Jerome weight driven movements: lantern pinions, countwheel strike, bent-wire levers, center arbor driven by dating hippie girls drawings tumblr disney dating and not part of it.
The tablet has a lot of paint loss, and the dial is very worn. The case has had a coating of reddish-brown varnish applied very sloppy. A few pieces of veneer are missing, but nothing major. The glass is original and held in with putty.
You can see a bull's-eye or bubble in the lower right corner of the tablet. The back of the clock has many holes from wall mounting and I used some to wall mount it. It is a weight-drive clock and needs a stable place to operate.
A website on Jerome clocks identifies the movement as a type 1. These are numbers given by collectors to identify variations in the movements, and would not have been used by the manufacturer. Clock uses a single-ended 4 crank. Remarkably, much of the label is intact and readable. Warranted Good. The label simply lists his address as Hartford.
The label also includes instructions on using the clock. Sessions Black Mantle clock, circa Someone has stripped the case of all of its decorations and then painted it to resemble green marble. First picture shows it bare as I found it, second picture is the movement, a spring-wound 8 day. Clock counts the hours on a coil gong, and sound a single note on a bell at the half.
Third picture shows the case after I found some original Sessions feet and some repro lions for the sides. An interesting feature of this clock is that it can be regulated without stopping it. The last picture is one I found online and is basically the same clock, but with the decorations still intact.
This tambour clock features Session's unique chiming movement. Some of these included two racks and two snails, a rotating chime barrel that locks into place on the hour, and an extra wheel and pinion assembly. More details can be seen looking at US patents 1, and 1, In addition to the photos below, I have made a movie that demonstrates the operation of this clock's unique chiming and striking mechanism. Clock uses a double-ended 7 and key.
This clock has a painted zinc metal dial with a raised hour ring. The dial is hand painted. The case has some details that the Jerome clock above does not. The door frame is concave, and the outer surround of the case is convex. The glass over the dial appears original, but I think the tablet is a replacement.
The clock appears to have been refinished about 30 or 40 years ago. This clock uses an interesting version of the Seth Thomas Lyre Movement that is not often seen. It is weight driven. A 7 pound 9 ounce weight operates the strike side, while a 8 pound 15 ounce weight operates the time. The clock also features an alarm. The case on this clock is the same size as most hour ogee clocks, compared to this the more common 8-day Seth Thomas ogee clocks are massive in size.
This type of clock is much easier to get along with than a hour clock, since it does not require daily attention. Clock uses a single-ended 6 crank. The label has great instructions for using the clock. It is too bad that American clock makers moved the label to outside the case in later years where the label was more easily damaged. Seth Thomas hour Cottage Clock with peaked top, c This little cottage clock is a nice example of the clocks Seth Thomas was making in the mid 19th century.
The date range for when this clock was made is given is based on the stamp on the movement and the label. The movement is stamped Plymouth Conn.
It is well known by many that the name of Plymouth, Connecticut was changed to Thomaston on honor of Seth Thomas inbut the name did not legally change until This clock was probably made after because it lacks the flowers on the dial that the ogee clock above has.
This clock was in rough shape when I received. The case was falling apart and both mainsprings were broken. Other than the piece of molding on the door, it is complete.
Clock uses a single-ended 4 key. This cottage clock was made during the same time period as the hour clock shown above. The case is veneered with rosewood. It uses a series 44 movement. You will likely notice that Seth Thomas was rather fond of using movements that were decidedly unique when compared to most other American makes. This movement also has what are known as stop-works or Geneva stops.
These limit how much the springs can be wound or unwound. The dial on this clock is in very good condition, and I suspect it has been painted over, especially since "Seth Thomas" is visible as ghost lettering on the dial. It is a good example of what can happen to clocks in their years or so of existence. The case has been modified to make the clock more like a cottage clock than a kitchen clock. The finish is very good, and all the labels are still present. It is just a pity such a clean clock was butchered.
Nonetheless, in its altered form it is a nice clock. I have decided to wall mount it and use it as an alarm clock. The hour and half-hour strike do not effect sleep, and I sleep right thru them. This clock uses the reliable Seth Thomas model 89 movement. I've included a picture of an intact fleet series clock from an ebay auction for reference. There were 3 or 4 different case designs that all sold under the same model number, B. Seth Thomas 4 Bell Sonora Chime circa This clock is rather unusual as far as chiming clocks go.
A model 89 movement, similar to the one used in the fleet clock above, is used for the time and strike functions. To this, a model 90 movement is added to chime the quarters.
The quarters and hours are sounded on a nest of 4 bells. The bells are so arranged to take advantage of a tone chamber mounted adjacent to them.
