Antique Clocks/identify clock help


Can you please help me identify this clock and possibly the value?  The bottom has the letters JB and 989.  It also says Pat and something else I can't make out.  Thank you very much!

I looked at 800 pictures of New Haven clocks but could not find yours so I can't give you a model name. The basic style is Art Deco and it was made in the 1920-1930's. The JB refers to the casting company that made the case - Jennings Brothers. The number would be the model number of the case which is made of spelter or white metal. Pat means patent and the patent date should follow. Value would be $50-100.

My experience is mostly with 19th century American clocks. I can answer repair questions and can identify most clocks of this period. I cannot answer questions about non-American clocks.


Many years buying, selling, and collecting American clocks.
