Took a couple of Carol’s clocks in for service and ended up purchasing a second howard miller grandfather clock, this one a presidential and a seth thomas beehive clock as well as a waterberry clock from around 1904 (photos tomorrow) when I pick it up but it is similar to this

1946-2006

Awesome! I wish I still had my parents grandfather clock. I do remember, as a kid, pulling up a chair (when no one was around) and opening one of the side doors at the top and seeing all the gears turning when the gongs would be engaged. Unfortunately, the don’t fit well in every home and it was included in the sale of their primary home…

Nice! :bvbvbv: Conger Street Clock Museum I assume?
The Howard Miller Presidential line of grandfathers clocks are attractive!


I ended up going with the J.H.Miller limited edition model #611030, purchased from the Conger Street Museum many years ago.

Nice Clock cod.

Ended up buying a couple of others this morning besides the ones purchased over the weekend including the President Adams Grandfather Clock 610-874. Already have two grandfather clocks in the house as it is. Different lighting for the photos below of grand-dad. As to Conger, well they are closed now and some run of the mill shop is there now

Also picked these up this morning as well at the same shop, Salem Clock which has been around 40 years now.

Thanks. All of my Nieces (six) have laid dibs on it........ not knowing all the others have as well. Am sure they are hoping that I leave it behind when I eventually move out of the country, but not likely. I recently moved it to another home I own, was nerve racking to say the least.

Shame, the place was a real treasure.


Love your recent purchases!

Infinity Reference Standard 3A. Purchased two pairs from a US military base in Germany and flew them down to Sicily.
Love them so much, I also purchased a pair of Infinity Reference Standard 2B some three years later.
