Jeremy Woodoff replied to Andrew's discussion Grandfather Clock East Grinstead Info? in the group Whadja Find Today
"On closer examination, it looks as though the dial and movement slide out from the front of the case. They are attached to a wood seatboard which appears to be resting in slots that are part of the case. If there is a pendulum attached to the…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Andrew's discussion Grandfather Clock East Grinstead Info? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Andrew, You have found an extremely unusual and interesting clock. Even if it is a fake it was a bargain at $75, and I suspect it is not a fake. Thomas Fowle of East Grinstead is a listed maker. "Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World"…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to brian colstad's discussion Secretary's Desk? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It's impossible to identify the wood without close-up photos showing the grain and detailing. The most likely I think are walnut, mahogany, or maybe stained birch. For date I would say 1920s to 1940s. I have no idea of value."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Mark Thomas's discussion Antique Light Help - whadjafind cross post in the group Lighting Antique and Vintage
"The pressed ornament on the wide ring about mid-point on the fixture looks Art Nouveau to me, from around 1890-1910. Also, there were inverted gas burners from this era, designed to compete with downward-pointing electric lamps."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Holly's discussion Need help finding the correct shade in the group Lighting Antique and Vintage
"I don't see how a glass shade would be held in place. I think it must have been cloth or paper, perhaps with curved sides similar to the curve on the harp. The shade bottom should probably not extend below the mid-point of the socket, so that…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Claire's discussion Help me identify this unusual lamp in the group Whadja Find Today
"Claire, I'm not sure why you say the fuel container is missing. It seems to be the silver round thing under the light bulb. It even appears to have the screw-in cap for filling with kerosene. The only things I see missing are the chimney and…"

"Very, very nice! I believe this is called a piano lamp. Check Google images under "antique piano lamp" and you will see them. The height may be adjustable."

"Please re-post the other pictures. It looks like a very nice example, probably made close to the last patent date, late 1880s or 1890s. What looks like brass might be gilding; if so, be very careful with cleaning it--no abrasives!"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Travis's discussion Torchiere Lamp in the group Whadja Find Today
"Yes, you can use an adaptor, as long as the existing mogul switch is working properly. Or you can still buy mogul bulbs, I think."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Woody Ramsey's discussion Clock with Wooden Movement in the group Whadja Find Today
"Woody, your clock was made about 1825-30 . It is an example of the beginnings of the Connecticut clock industry, essentially started by Eli Terry with his mass-production of wood clock movements. The style is generally referred to as a "column…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Lewis Royer's discussion Very detailed metal statue in the group Whadja Find Today
"It probably doesn't depict anyone in particular. Probably made of spelter and originally with a plated or bronzed, painted finish. This type of figure was very popular in the Victorian era--maybe 1870s through 1910s. They were made and sold by…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Dan Harper's discussion gas light shades? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Here is a picture of a reproduction gas-electric fixture. Note the similar glass pieces used to simulate a gas candle."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to luis's discussion help with table clock in the group Whadja Find Today
"Another problem I just noticed is that the dial is divided into minutes, which is not correct for a one-hand clock. The dial for a one-hand clock would have divisions (usually quarter-hour) on the inside of the Roman hour numerals."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to luis's discussion help with table clock in the group Whadja Find Today
"I really shouldn't even guess, but if I had to based on the information I have and what I can see, I would say it might be a real 18th century clock or watch movement housed in a later case, which may be 19th century or even 20th century, made…"

"The "A Paris" is easy--made in Paris. The maker's name seems to be "Corleteic." I don't see anything like that in my list of makers, though that doesn't necessarily mean anything."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to luis's discussion help with table clock in the group Whadja Find Today
"Luis, Renaissance table clocks are extremely rare. There are probably many more reproductions and fakes than real ones. Your clock is very interesting and does have some features that appear very early, but I cannot tell if it is authentic. On thing…"
