Turn of the Century Tall Case Colonial Mfg. Clock

I own a turn of the century Colonial grandfather clock which has been in my family for years.


It has a mercury filled pendulum, three chimes,9 tubes and is absolutely beautiful.

The only ID I can find on it are the numbers 1211 stenciled on the back.

CI am considering selling it and am looking for any information I can find.
Can anyone help me?

Thanks.
Fred

The plate on the face says " Colonial Mfg Co. Zeeland, MI." It hasn't been run in the last couple of years, but ran and kept perfect time when it was last used. Probably could use a cleaning and Lube but everything worked. I am unsure of whose movement is in it. I have been told that it could be a Herchede movement.

It came from the home of a very wealthy turn of the century business owner whose daughter was a friend of my grandfather. Reportably he was a poker budy of Henry Ford Who came out to Somerset to relax and play cards in Mr. McCortie's speakeasy during prohibition.

As to asking price. I am having a vewry hard time coming up with a price. What are your thoughts?

Colonial Grandfather Clock

Is the clock functioning properly?. What is the movement and
how much are you asking?. What is the small print on the face near the 6 o'clock?

Yes I still have it
by: Fred Hetherwick

Yes I do still have the clock and although I hate to sell it, I will sell it. I really don't have a good place to display it. it is too tall for any place in our home and I would hope to get it in the hands of someone who truly appreciates it.

I don't know when you posted this message.
Do you still have the clock and are you selling it?
