This is the Seth Thomas Column Shell, a 30-hour weight driven clock. The movement is marked "Plymouth," on the remains of the label "Plymouth Hollow can be made out, and the label was printed by Case, Lockwood, & Co. This dates the clock to 1860 - 1865. Although the label is over 50 percent gone, the original bottom glass is in very good shape. The dial has been touched up, not the way I would have done it, but passable, nonetheless. The rosewood case itself is in good shape.

Upon the dissolution of Brewster and Ingrahams in 1852, Elias and Andrew Ingraham formed the E&A Ingraham Company. This entity lasted until December 1856, when it closed due to bankruptcy. E&A Ingraham's stock was essentially that of Brewster and Ingrahams. This is a nice example of the round gothic (or beehive) style developed by Elias Ingraham. It is eight-day time and strike. It has an excellent label, but the original dial has suffered a fair amount of paint loss. The movement is unsigned and bears strong resemblances to both Chauncey Jerome movements and New Haven movements manufactured shortly before or after they they purchased Jerome in January 1857. If this is one of those movements, it would seem to date the clock closer to 1856 than to an earlier year of the firm. E&A Ingraham did not manufacture its own movements.

Elmer O. Stennes of Weymouth, Mass. made this clock while he was serving a sentence in prison for killing his wife. The clock is marked on the case "MCIP" (Made Clock In Prison or some say it stands for Massachussettes Correctional Institute at Plymouth). The clock is also marked 12-72 (December 1972). It is rumored that bee keeping was a hobby of Stennes' and a small bee can be seen on the throat reverse painted glass as well as on the lower left of the dial between the VI and VII.

Simon Willard and Son banjo clock, ca. 1828. The clock never had sidearms. The dial is signed "Simon Willard & Son No. 1639". The panels in the throat and box were originally reverse painted on glass to look like mahogany. The glass was replaced with wood panels many years ago.
