1000 $10000 $15000 J.H. Gerry, New York, N.Y., in case provided by Seth Thomas Clock Co. as a variant of "Regulator No. 16" with 8 days, time only, weight driven movement in walnut case with J. H. Gerry patent gravity escapement, c1885 this is generally good quality work, escapement changed and gravity arms added in the late 1800s to the square movement. This clock contains square form plates rather than the typical trapezoidal plates found in the standard Seth Thomas No. 16. The special glass dial signed "Gerry" shows small chips around the screw mounting holes, and some loss of paint. Note the clock runs reliably and with distinctive action of the gravity arms onto the brass keystone (pendulum hangs from the front of the movement) Also the keystone itself was replaced by the current owner, and not to the same standard as the balance of the work. A few screws have been replaced with heads that do not match. Still it is mechanically sound and will respond to additional refinement. Walnut case retains an old finish, with some losses (chip to top shell), but generally very good+ condition. Nickel reflector, weight, pulley and pendulum bob. Note also that this is one of the early "thin" cases, front to back. J.H. Gerry was an important figure in the development of the Self Winding Clock Co. Ht 76"

1004 $11000 $14000 Austria, 30 day Laterndluhr timepiece, meter pendulum with silver engine turned dial with seconds bit, in a provincial style mahogany case of mahogany solids and veneers, c.1815 this particular clock is illustrated in Rick Ortenburger's book titled VIENNA REGULATORS AND FACTORY CLOCKS (1990), page 51. Rick must have lost his notes on this clock, since it looks dark in the full photo but careful examination of the close up photo clearly shows the mahogany grain that matches he clock we have here. The inside of the case IS finished in black, but not the outside. If you have Rick's book, you will see that the dial, hands and pulley all match the photo plus we know where the clock has been for the last 25 years. Best part of this clock is the unique early movement. which has a half plate to carry the great & first wheels and separate cocks for the next 3 arbors, and finally a bridge for the rear pivot of the verge. The 8 inch dial retains bright gilding, the center with nice engine turned pattern and the chapter area turned with fine grooves to avoid reflection. At first the Roman numerals seem a bit heavy for this time period, however a look at Kaltenböck's book VIENNESE TIMEPIECES (1993), pages 182-183, will show other early examples with heavier numerals. Pendulum stick, suspension and rating assemblies are later, bob brass both sides. Glass is modern; seat board replaced. Hood sets on trunk by gravity. Hangs through hole in case.

If the power company is producing 60 cycles per second, and the clock movement is wound and running, the large hand stays up on zero. Cord was disconnected after checking. It is inside the case. Note that you should attach cord and just plug it in; there is NO need to ever wind it again. An additional note is if you stop the pendulum and leave the electric motor running, it can strip off the "scape teeth' (something has to give). Henry Warren's invention and application of the concept was revolutionary. For additional info, see NAWCC Bulletin from 1991, 33, pg 374-395, article titled "Henry Warren and His Master Clocks."
