Antique Waterbury Carved/pressed Oak Mantel-shelf-parlor Clock 1800's:
This is a wonderful Waterbury mantel clock..... I just had it service it works great keep time well and the chimes are beautiful.... However, because I will be shipping this item it will need to be adjusted... It is 22" H x 15" W x 4.5" D..
Yes the paint is all there...
The label on the back said Waterbury...
In regards to the face. I can tell that there has been some updated maintenance done. Like a couple of newer screws for the door, and a couple of what appears to be newer screws on the back. However, I can not say or not if the face is original or not....
Formed March 5, 1857, as a joint stock corporation, the Waterbury Clock Company from its inception was an operation designed to be a major user of brass produced by the parent firm, the Benedict & Burnham Manufacturing Company. Utilizing the best talent available to them, they hired veteran clockmaker Chauncey Jerome to set up the new firm’s casemaking shop and his brother Noble Jerome, a well-known clock mechanic, to set up the movement manufacturing operation.
Though this firm became a major clock producer, after 1890 they became a major manufacturer of non-jeweled pocket watches, supplying R. H. Ingersoll & Brother, a major mail order firm. Large-scale production and profitability were enjoyed for more than two decades with this association. Major factory expansions between 1900 and 1915 made this the largest clock manufacturing facility in America.
