This beautiful old Waterbury clock runs very well, and keeps accurate time. But, a good cleaning and adjustment might be in order. The mahogany clock case is 9 inches tall, and it does have small issues with the veneer...but it's not bad. The dial is ceramic and there are small, but stable cracks. The hands seem to be original and the original key comes with the clock. The movement is marked "Waterbury" and "made in USA" and the movement looks clean, but no other marks or patent numbers are visible. This is a nice old clock.
The Waterbury Clock Company was a Connecticut-based clock firm. In 1857 Waterbury began as a subsidiary of Benedict & Burnham which was a brass manufacturing company. Benedict & Burnham had no background in clock making, but it saw clocks as a means to use its brass. Waterbury became a worldwide leading manufacturer of clocks and timepieces. Unfortunately, after lasting thru the depression years, it closed its doors in 1944.
