Did you get my e-mail(attached) Howard?
Your night-clock arrived in good condition & I'm very happy with it. I don't
think it is a night clock however, but a FRENCH decorative'verre
eglomise' wall clock circa 1800-1830. How unusual for it to be in such
good condition. The spike inside is not, in my opinion, for a candle but
rather to hold the key.The burn marks explain nothing except that a
naked flame was near the dial at some time. It is a very rare & unusual
piece & I am sure my client will grab it. I will try to ring you at 4pm
Friday (your time) re above and the other clocks.

Several months ago, I purchased three clocks from you: A
Seth Thomas Sonora Chime, Ansonia "Florentine #1," and New Haven
"Abbey." I just thought I'd touch base with you and let you know
how happy I am with the clocks.
The Sonora Chime clock cleaned up wonderfully ...............
Florentine ........................., it has beed restored to its
I had Abbey's movement refurbished and it's now the main time-
keeper in my den (where I keep most of my clocks). I love its
soft Westminster chime.
Anyway, I check your web site often and am always interested to
see what you have to offer. ..................
It was nice doing business with you -- I'm sure we'll do some

I am thrilled with the cuckoo clock I bought through your internet yard sale.
I was wary conducting business in this manner but was pleasantly surprised!
The clock was just as you described and arrived in excellent condition. I
was impressed with the expert packing, and can understand the cost of
handling. The clock is unique, and a favored addition in my collection.
I visit your sites frequently to watch for additons!
Unsigned ( who are you ?)
The clock is great.

I received the clock yesterday. I am very pleased! Unfortunately (clock wise) I got some large orders so won't be able to even look at it for six or seven weeks but I'll let you know if I fix it.
PS if you find any tall clocks in "as is" condition I am interested, email me.

Please disregard the previous mail I sent. I overlooked exactly what I
needed to know on the "care of old clocks" sheet. I followed the
instructions and everything seems to be fine now. It really is a
gorgeous clock and it looks great on my mantel. I love it! Sorry for
jumping the gun. I hope to be able to order from you again in the
future. Thanks again.
I am so happy with the clock I bought from you that I would
like another one! It is:
Ansonia Crystal Regulator "Rouen"
This is dated 1920 - does that mean I would have to pay VAT as it is
not 100 years old, or does the fact that it is 'second hand' determine
Before I go ahead, could you let me know the total cost?
Clock is working beautifully and has a mellow bong.
I spoke to the Customs people here who agreed that VAT
should not have been charged and that it was charged on
I need to give them a document that gives the date of the
clock and the actual cost (ie $495). Could I trouble you to
send me a paper receipt showing this info? I think it will
have to be 'official' so an email won't do.
Subject: French Marble Clock - Stock # 134-m001
We just received the clock today. It is by far a GREAT clock, even nicer
than in the picture. It's up and running with no problems. We will
difinantly continue to browse your web page and look for our next purchase.
Subject: Stock #134-762 French Woodcase Clock
This is R. T. again. I purchased a Chelsea 24 hour Navy Clock
from you a couple of months ago. We just gave it to my dad this past
weekend. He loved it.
The reason for this letter is to ask a little more information about the
French Woodcase Clock. Stock #134-762.
I am not familiar with lever escapement mechan. How is it different
from key wound movements? Also could you please tell me the approx.
size of the clock? Thank you.

From: FROM: DANIEL
I just like to let you know the Chelsea Clock (134-804) arrived
yesterday. It is running strong. I am somewhat concerned that
it gained nearly 3 minutes overnight.... did you check by chance
check it for accuracy? It appears that there is a fair amount of
adjustment available so I expect it is correctable.
Again, thank you (and Janice) for your prompt service!.

I received the clock on Monday 8/8/96. I arrived in one piece, it's beautiful, and
I am very pleased. You mentioned in your letter that you received several other Waterbury clocks. I already have Calender No.34, but would be very interested to
see the others.
Please let me know when you put them up on the internet. Thanks again and I look
forward to hearing from you in the future.
End of this page. Thank you for coming.
