386 $200 $400 Scientific electronic instruments- 3 (Three): F.L. Moseley Co. "Autograf" Model 35 X-Y Recorder; Hewlett Packard, Moseley Division, Model 35A X-Y Recorder with accessories with ink; Hitachi Denshi, Ltd. Oscilloscope Model V-212/211, later 20th century we noted the following on-line information for the X-Y machines: "In 1951, the F.L. Moseley Co. was formed in a California garage to manufacture the first commercially available models of the x-y recorder, called the Autograf line. For scientists and engineers everywhere, the Moseley x-y recorder meant that a means for automatically recording the relationship between two variables was finally available. Friction to heat, vibration to velocity, current to voltage—whatever the variables, the Autograf made it possible to trace them on chart paper automatically, rather than tracking them by hand. In 1958, HP acquired the Pasadena, California-based F.L. Moseley, complementing its highly diversified line of measuring and signal-generating instruments. The association made it possible to further develop and improve the graphic recording instruments, which by then had become a standard in the industry, and to correlate uses and applications with many HP products." The oscilloscope includes two leads and the operation manual. We have not tested these instruments; sold as is but appear complete and undamaged. Lot heavy and fragile for shipping. Our estimate is just our best guess for these vintage instruments.

1018 $10000 $15000 E. Howard & Co., Boston, "Regulator No. 12" wall clock, in original grained cherry case, now less bottom trim molding, and with a stand that allows it to be used as a floor clock, c1875 a simple molding may be restored to the bottom to keep it a wall clock, or it may be used with the later base. The original glass jar for the pendulum is gone, replaced with a red brass cylinder. There is no known source for this glass jar. Mirror in case back trim has been replaced. The top bezel had separated a bit and was filled and sanded rather than being carefully turned. Other than these items the clock is basically original, and will respond to restoration. This is one of Howard's finest movements, complete, sound and properly signed; dead beat escapement and maintaining power. The original flat iron weight descends down the right side of the case, suspended from original pulley; weight hidden by a baffle which was removed for the photo.

Howard & Co., Boston, a custom regulator, probably a wall clock originally, now with a purpose made, matching base of mahogany, 8-day weight driven and with fancy decorated pendulum bob. the cabinet maker who made the base did a good job of matching the style, carvings and color, but left the grain a bit open. He also refinished the rear of both sections to blend his work. The top rear of the case retains its original wall hanging bracket [although many Howard floor clocks do have this bracket for additional stability] Our best appraisal of the case is that the main portion was made around 1925 and the base made around 1960. Movement is a large, high quality #1, winding at 3, seconds beating, and with dead beat escapement and maintaining power. Weight is iron with a cast in "1". Runs robustly.

Rosen of Los Angeles. Around 40 years ago, the dial rings were sent for refinishing and got lost in the post and so new ones were ordered with a sketch of the information. Anyone who has ordered from Goodacre Engraving knows that whatever you write down, including style is what you will receive back, net result is that careful spelling and lettering of the tunes came back exactly as written on the paper, rather than in the style of the period. Similarly, a sketch of the chapter ring with calendar had the dates down with irregular spacing, and so it was made. If you can get past the need for better dial rings, what remains is quite wonderful, the clock playing 4 recognizable tunes at intervals and on request, the back plate very nicely engraved with foliate pattern, and the case with original caryatids and other trimmings, and the escapement has never been modified from the original.

While Tiffany often used imported movements in their clocks, this clock was made in the Tiffany Clock Shop in New York, under the supervision of Joseph Lindauer, who was in charge of operations in their clock manufacturing shop. The patent referenced on the back plate was held by Lindauer for a simplified striking mechanism, which was used in these clocks. The striking mechanism has a design flaw which does not re synchronize the Westminster chimes after the hour strikes, so the chimes often play the incorrect sequence at the various quarters. That said, this is a rare and impressive (and extremely heavy) clock by a desirable maker, and well worth restoring

1131 $400 $600 English mahogany barrel form 8 day, fusee spring brass movement wall clock or timepiece, c1815 The dial is signed "Smart", who might possibly be Benjamin Smart a London clockmaker who worked from 1797-1818 located at 35 Firth Street. The two "ears" would suggest that this timepiece may have been built into some larger structure. There are three holes in the case at the six o'clock position that would suggest this timepiece was mounted onto a stand with three pins. Mahogany veneered case in nice condition with some splits and a raised area caused by differences in case construction. Original painted dial has some paint loss in the center area and in places on the outer edge. Hands are original. The small hand at 12 o'clock is for regulating the pendulum.

1134 $3000 $4000 German, Lenzkirch, immense and ornate "Freischwinger" or free-swinger with pendulum open in bottom section, serial #824349, c1885 this clock is a Lenzkirch collectors dream. Was imported to the US in 1968 and has been in storage since. Both case and movement are dirty. Note movement mounting sets up on a block to bring dial flush with the door. Sometimes this indicates a marriage, but in this case it was done because of the extra deep case; there is no evidence of tampering. Not immediately evident in the movement are the dozens of decorative bronze castings, since they have all turned dark brown. In spite of having 3 major references on Lenzkirch, we could not find this exact case in a book (send us an email if you know the model) Charts of serial numbers vary quite a bit, but we can safely say that this is 4th quarter of 1800s. Thumbscrews for movement mount are lacking. Some nicks and scrapes to case commensurate with its age. With the many turnings and finial tips in bronze, this is a very heavy clock. We recommend blanket wrap delivery. Ht 52"
1135 $2000 $3000 French picture clock, oil on canvas, 8 day time and strike movement by Chaumont, Paris, with 4-tune music box, c1880 this is a better-than-average example, with the clock face showing in the scene's church steeple. The unsigned painting portrays a riverside village with a fisherman, etc., and has been nicely repaired long ago with a few patches on the reverse side. The signed thread-suspension movement strikes on a gong and also actuates the very nice sounding large music box mounted above which has selector switches accessed through a brass plate on the side of the case. One sticker lists the four tunes; the smaller round one advertises a clockmaker in Brugge. We were able to produce a slow melody, but service will be needed on both movements, and their linkages. The frame has its gilding mostly intact, and measures 22" x 27"
1136 $2000 $3000 Swiss, with French spring wound pendulum movement, castle style automaton, with monkey appearing as a conductor, moving his arm to indicate the striking of the gong; c1875 this clock was most likely carved in the Interlaken area, a region well known for carved cases, both figural and architectural. The exterior of the case is incised to simulate brick, the top cut to simulate shingles and the dial flanked by Corinthian columns with gilt metal trimmings. The steeple does separate from the main case for service of the "monkey linkage". There are some missing bits of brass trim and some nicks and scrapes to the case; front panel with dry split, all commensurate with its' age. The well made French time and strike movement goes for 8+ days; although it ticks and tries to strike, it would benefit from service. The gilt dial with cartouche numerals is exceptional and very clean. The linkage to the monkey's arm, with counterweight, needs adjusting. Overall an interesting clock for the novelty collector.

1137 $2000 $2500 Austrian Gebruder Resch, 3-weight Grand Sonnerie wall clock, extra large, with profuse carvings and extra moldings, serial #100000--66384, dial with retailers name = Johann Greiner, Graz, c1880 overall excellent condition. all numbers match on mounting bracket movement and pendulum. Note that this case is extra deep, and a one inch block is used to space the movement out from the back board, however there is no bracket of later tampering. Pattern on weights, pendulum and dial is etched in, not engraved, and the scrolling pattern on pendulum and weights does not quite match the leafy pattern on the dial center. The case features a large dentil treatment above dial, and a well pendulum female bust at top. Dial is flanked by two full round and reeded columns, and surrounded by a deeply carved bezel, the lower pendulum of this double door design with well detailed pilasters. Very heavy door is held in place by pendulum robust lock and original key. This one of a kind case was likely commissioned to match a set of dining room furniture. This clock weights approx 65 pounds and we suggest a stronger wall wall hanger. Ht 64"
1138 $1500 $2500 Laterndluhr, Vienna, 8-day time and strike period movement in a modern inlaid walnut or mahogany 9-light hanging case. this is a well-made detailed case in excellent condition (an original would be many times more costly). The movement is c1880 with a pristine porcelain dial, brass weights with a few small dents and tarnish, and brass pendulum with slight tarnish. The two movement hold-down bolts are absent, so the movement is loose in the case, but these are easily replaced. Very fragile for shipping. Ht 34"

Well made movement is complete and sound, and still with strike shut off intact. Pulleys match. Art Nouveau decorations applied to dial center, pendulum and weights, not an exact match, but of the same style. Impressive, and all of the inlay is intact. Note the case will need a new rear hanger for safety.. Ht: 57"

The unsigned numbered movement probably is German. The porcelain dial has a tiny chip on the edge of the inner disk, and the beat scale has some cracks.

1144 $900 $1200 Japanese, double foliot lantern clock, large, "Nicho Tenpu Yagura-dokei", 30 hour, steel framed movement with tooled brass covers, now on a purpose made wall bracket and with later weights although the wall bracket and weights are modern, the clock itself is otherwise c1790 and in very good original condition. Small dent in dial. Larger lanterns like this [16" ht] often occur on a floor base, which may be a simple trapezoid paneled affair, or open with delicate curved legs. For centuries, the japanese divided the day into 6 daylight hours and 6 night time hours, and their clocks designed to vary the length of each hour to correspond with the daylight offered by the sun. The work day and study day were thus longer in the summer and shorter in the winter. Levers within the movement rise to change from the small foliot to the large foliot, and every few days the little weights on the foliot are adjusted manually outward or inward to change the length of the hours. Small alarm weight and rope are lacking. From the collection of the late Rose Brandt.
