Antique American Clocks January 2022
Waterbury Clock Co. “Calendar No. 44”, ca. 1907. Waterbury made several versions of this small shelf calendar over the years; this is the last version. It stands 24 inches tall in walnut with an old finish with patina on the sides. The walnut has been sun-faded on the top and base. The door glass is a modern replacement, properly painted. The dials are the original paper with the company name on each. They are faded as well and stained. The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is unsigned, running and striking on the hours and half-hours on the cathedral gong; the calendar is advancing. The calendar rollers are very dark. Several labels on the back, mostly torn up. Schmitt’s Antiques sold one last fall for $275. $275-$400.
