This is a wall clock from “The Session Clock Company”, Forestville, Conn. They started in business around 1902 and were in business up to around 1950. This clock was given to me by my friend Ralph Chavez. It was given to Ralph’s Great Grandfather as a gift for his services as a “Alcalde” (which is a judge of first instance or Municipal maagistrate) of a small Pueblo in Mexico. The clock was passed down from the Great Grandfather to Grandfather to father to Ralph and then to me.
OK! History over. The last picture is of the back of the clock . I sanded the wood where it was not finished and got red dust. The back is 3 pieces of wood glued together. The wood where finsihed looks to be a Walnut finish.
1. What kind of wood could this be?
