Here is a link to ebay where you may be able to find a picture of your clock with what prices they are asking for them.

In any given year, the styles of the various manufacturers of clocks tended to be somewhat similar in appearance. When one manufacturer would bring out an innovation, others would follow suit, thus this clock may have been made by a different manufacturer but still look like your clock.

One of the great innovations to the movements of clocks occurred about 100 years ago. This is when the rack and snail movements were developed whereby the chime automatically synchronized with the hands.

Expertise

I can not think of any questions I cannot answer in regard to repairing antique clocks or radios. However, I am sure there are a few I have not heard and may not be able to answer. If I cannot, I will say so. I have been repairing them since I was a young child.

Experience

My experience includes repairing CooKoo clocks, Westminsters, BimBam, almost all antique clocks. I do a bit of repair on battery clocks where the value is sufficient to warrant working on them. I also repair antique (tube type) radios - all makes.
