Mantel clock American C. 1920
Here's a clock you probably remember from your grandparent's home. These homely old "humpbacks" were as popular as antimacassars and Philco radios in the days before TV. Made by numerous clock companies like Sessions, New Haven, Seth Thomas and Waterbury, these clocks were renown for their dependability and pleasant, resonant gong on the hour and half hour. There is no manufacturers trademark on this one, but it is probably a Sessions. The mahogany case is in fine shape, as is the movement which keeps good time. Measures 9" tall, 17" wide, 5" deep.
