unknown clock

New postby perby » Sun Jan 15, 2017 12:05 am

Hello everyone,
I have just had this unknown clock given to me, no identification on the movement, dial or case.
The movement is small being approx. 3 X 3 inches square.
The case is 11 " high, 6 3/4 " wide , and approx. 3 1/2 " deep.
Any help as to maker, age, etc., greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Bill
sorry the case picture is upside down

Ray,
Thanks for the info, my knowledge is really limited on clocks, no idea at all. It would be nice to think that this clock is of that age, and to get it given to me of course is all the better.

The plate setup and the fact that it is pinned together tell me it is easily that old. Style of the movement fits a Jerome, however it could be a Waterbury or some other early American manufacturer as well...

Ray,
I just found pictures of a couple of Jerome clocks, and they are remarkably similar. Were these clocks just time pieces , I mean no chimes or gongs etc.
Thanks,
Bill

Most of what I have come across from Jerome were primarily time only movements. I have worked on a lot of "OG" clocks made by them. The movement is basically the same, but they are driven by a weight and have a much longer drop. They did make strike movement "OG" clocks also. Still, this one fits the bill as one of their designs and might be an early attempt to try something new...
