Antique New Haven Kitchen / Parlor Clock Movement & Parts - Time, Strike & Alarm:
Antique New Haven Kitchen / Parlor Clock Movement & Parts - Time, Strike & Alarm: Up for sale are the complete parts which I have removed from an antique New Haven Gingerbread clock. I had discovered the New Haven Gingerbread clock recently but unfortunately the cabinet beyond repair so I removed each of the interior parts of the clock which I have photographed for your consideration. The movement does not have a pallet, suspension spring or rod and because the escapement wheel was continuing to spin, I did secure it gently with a small piece of wire. When I removed the dial from the movement I noticed that there had been some earlier repairs done to it so please be sure to view the photographs carefully to see these repairs. Because I am unaware of the working condition / accuracy of the movement, please know that this listing is being offered as is - for parts or repair. Below I will go over the condition of each of the components of the clock parts and if you have any further questions, please do hesitate to send me a note.Movement: As mentioned, there has been prior repairs done to the movement. The heavy polished brass plates and wheels are relatively clean (no built up oil or tarnishing) and there are no damaged wheels (bent or missing teeth). The movement is marked on the front plate, bottom right corner, with the following:
NEW HAVEN (star logo) TRADEMARK
I believe the movement to be an 8-Day time and strike which would strike the large coiled gong once on the 1/2 hour and again on the hour with the corresponding number of hours. The mainsprings appear to be in very good, usable condition and the overall dimensions of the movement are as follows:
Width: 3 5/8"
Right to Left Winding Arbor: 3 1/8"
Winding Arbors to Center Arbor: 1 3/4" The kitchen alarm movement is complete without any damage however it could use a light cleaning.DIAL & HANDS: The dial is in relatively good condition (6 1/3" total diameter). Hand painted on zinc, there is very small crazing to the paint but very little loss and no major discoloration. The brass shows a little tarnish but it is not penetrating and it would polish up very nicely. The outside of the dial ring is marked: PATD FEB. 11, 1879
The hands appear to be the original and though its not pictured, there is a taper pin that holds them in place on the arbor. The pressed brass alarm setting ring is also is excellent condition.PENDULUM: The ornate pendulum is also in very good condition. The brass has a very nice even patina and the pendulum is marked: PAT'D MCH. 1ST 1881 COIL GONG and BRASS BELL: Both are in very nice condition. No rust on the gong coil or iron mount. Brass bell appears to have been polished in recent years.I've also kept all of the mounting hardware that secured these parts to the cabinet which will be sent along to the winning buyer as well.
