Meeting Notice - Saturday, 11 March 2017
All Members of NAWCC and Guests are Welcome to Attend Free
Program: John Wagner - “A Herschede Hall Clock: History, Transport, and Friends”
The tall clock with chime bells and majestic wood cabinet became the time standard bearer for elegance in European and American homes. The Herschede Hall Clock Company of Cincinnati, Ohio created award winning hall clocks with a distinctive brass movement featuring a deadbeat escapement, heavy brass dial with moving moon disc, nickel plated chime tubes, brass shell weights, and assorted hard wood cabinet patterns. A 1912 Crown Hall Clock Movement No. 1, First Quality, with Dial “A” and nine 1½ inch Symphony tubular bells chiming quarts Westminster and Whittington, with separate bell for hour strike will be discussed. This clock traveled from Ohio to Illinois to Washington to South Carolina during the course of 105 years which started the same year that the RMS Titanic sunk on her maiden voyage. This past summer, the clock’s latest journey from the west coast to east coast involved both old and new horology friends in the process. Please join in the presentation to celebrate the work of Franz Herschede and the hall clocks created at the turn of the century in America.
