"The older battery movements in clear cases operating on C batteries were actually balance wheel (mechanical) movements powered or wound by the battery rather than a mainspring. I'm sure they date at least to the 1960s and so might have been the…"
"This looks like an American movement. It could well be an Ansonia clock. The movements weren't always marked. The crown-toothed wheel on the front of the movement is a calendar gear and explains the large empty area between the dial numerals…"
"The "Regulator A" clocks were typically made by the Ansonia Clock Co., though similar styles were also made in Asia, probably Japan. The dial and hands on your clock are not typical of Ansonia., though the case is. If you can provide a…"
Your clock is the "De Soto" model. It was introduced by Ingraham in 1915 and was last offered in 1928. It was described in the catalog as having "Mahogany Finish Panels Inlaid with Silver and Gilt. Imitation Onyx Columns. Gilt…"
That's a cutel little clock. I believe it dates to the 1930s. Ingraham also had a line of similar electric clocks in Art Deco-influenced wood cases from that period. They were also involved in making cases for radios, and the radio and…"
That's a lovely fixture. I've never seen a center shade with a design like that--very nice. I imagine you can find three period smaller shades on-line or in antique stores. I would guess the fixture dates to around 1910 to…"
"Yes, these are nice clocks. I can't see the prices on the Waterbury china clock or the Seth Thomas adamantine. If you have them, I'd be interested in knowing what they are. The E.N. Welch rosewood clock that is partly visible next to the…"
That's a very nice clock! Muller was a well-known maker of clock cases and other cast metal objects, and Pomeroy a well-known movement maker who supplied various clockmakers with movements. I doubt that the paint on the case is…"

I just found this lamp at a flea market. It consists of a spelter cherub or cupid holding a single socket. The figure sits on a red stone base. It's about 14 inches high overall. Probably about 75% of the original painted finish is still present. The original socket is slightly larger than candelabra size and much smaller than standard Edison size. It came with an adapter in it for a candelabra bulb. I haven't found any inscriptions except for an "11" under one of the cherub's feet. There is an…See More
Just to clarify one of the earlier responses, Seth Thomas's model name for this clock was "Kitchen." The term "kitchen clock" is a generic one that came into use later and referred to out-of fashion parlor…"
