Antique Clocks/Identifying a Wall clock


Hello again Tom,

After sending my last question I thought of another, with the Wall clocks with the painted panel are there any distinguishing features between Forestville, Jerome, Waterbury etc to tell which it is when the paper backing label is missing.

Kind Regards


There are none that I am aware of. I do not have a very large selection of these older wall clocks, however, if you could send me a picture of the movement I might be able to identify it from its appearance.

Sorry for the delay in responding as I just attended my grand daughters wedding and will be on the road for another week before I get home. Send me your reply about the 9th or 10th of August or by email at a nytime.

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.


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.
