A year ago I wrote here on forums about a Mantle Clock I had just inherited from my Daddy whom had just died. I had it put up and had no pictures of it.
I noticed on the link I just put above from the original thread that GMman had left me links that have since been removed (I don’t know why)
Anyway here are some pictures I took of it yesterday. As you can see it is dusty, needs a good cleaning. I finally found out what the name of this clock by googling it. It is called “Alarm # 1655” Made by Waterbury.
Does anyone know how I can find out its true age, and perhaps what it may be worth.
I saw similar ones going for just $46.00 on ebay just yesterday LOL!
I will never sell it, I am just curious.
The story went that my grandmother bought a clock for each of her children when they were born, to be held onto until her death and then given to the child. My Dad’s however (I and family)were told was 50 years old WHEN he was born making this clock 138 years old if the story is true.
Again any help from you guys will be highly appreciated as always.
(By the way, I was told it was made out of oak)
The only website that I can find that will giving me info wants money!!!
There was someone here on LJ’s that dealt with clocks such as this and I have since forgotton whom it was (I am sorry) I end up speaking with you great folks at first by your LJ’s user name and then I correspond with so many that I start knowing u all by your real names, get back here and can’t remember your user names! LOL! Plus I have sometimers really bad, sometimes I remember and sometimes I don’t!
