New Haven “Lincoln” Mantel Clock

Posted in Sales on October 20, 2008 by Lori

This is a New Haven “Lincoln” Westminister (or Westminster, depending on whom you ask) chime mantel clock, made in the 1920s in New Haven, Connecticut.

The case is a beautiful mahogany solid wood in excellent condition, and it has one of the nicest sounding chimes I have heard.  For those of you who like the sound of a nice chime coupled with a bit of a deco look, you’re in for a treat!

The price is $350.00 with a 1 year warranty.  Click on the picture for a closer look, and let me know when you want to come and pick it up.


French Clocks with One-Year Warranty

Posted in Sales on September 29, 2008 by Lori

The first pictured clock is a French marble clock made by Japy Freres in approximately 1870. 

For those of you interested in a clock’s history, Japy Freres was founded by Frédéric Japy, the son of the blacksmith and mayor of Beaucourt, who decided to serve as a Swiss clockmaker’s apprentice before starting the largest and most commercially important clockmaking concern in France. The business continued after his death through his sons, as he would not allow anyone outside the family to carry on his legacy.

The second is also a French marble clock, with no makers mark on the movement.  Anyone interested in some antiques sleuthing is likely in for a valuable find!

I have 5 other French marble clocks for sale, with prices starting at $300.00. They are beautifully constructed and have that great, solid heft you rarely get anymore in modern mantel clocks. All are guaranteed for a year after purchase.

Feel free to click on the pictures for a closer look, and be sure to contact me when you’re ready to take one (or both) home.
