Sessions Black Mantle clock?

by Jeff
(Barryton, Mi)




I was given this old clock in non working order. I have since gotten it to run, but it is missing the columns in the front. It is a black mantle, with gold ornate face, with the word Sessions on it.

There are 4 columns(2 each side of dial, that stand on blocks, or steps. It has a green marble look to the top, as well as the column steps. It has cast feet, and a cast side ornament, but not lion head.

I am wondering if these were celluloid columns, or cast metal.

I can not find, in my many searches, of a photo of this clock. I would like to know the year and name of this clock if possible. Anyone with any knowledge of this style clock?

Early 1900's Sessions Black mantle clock

by M.K. Lanier
(Wilmington, NC)

Sessions Black Mantle

Sessions Black Mantle

Greetings,

I am trying to establish the value of this clock that belongs to a friend of mine who cannot access the Internet due to blindness.

From the history on the site, it appears the clock was made by Sessions between 1903 and 1936. It measures approx. 10" in height and width, and about 5" depth. The logo "MADE BY THE SESSIONS CLOCK CO., FORESTVILLE, CONN, U.S.A." is printed along the bottom curvature of the clock dial between the dual winding posts. There is also a large ?S? cast in the pendulum inside the movement, which can be seen through a round hole with a metal cover in the back of the clock, about 3" across.

I have not tried to wind or operate the clock for fear of damaging it, as it appears to be frozen up, probably needs cleaning.

Any information you can offer regarding the value and whether or not it is worth having serviced would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

M.K.

E. N. Welch Kitchen Clock

I have had an antique clock in my possession for several years and know little about it. My grandmother was friends with a lady who died with little family. My grandmother obtained the clock from this lady. The clock is in very good condition. My ex-husband used to keep it running on the mantle. Unfortunately I never paid attention to how he did it. The label on the back is mostly worn off but I believe from my research it is a clock from the Welch Mfg. Co. I would love to know the name of the clock, when it was made, and it's approximate worth. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Sessions Clock

This is a clock that was given to my my mom by her grand mother. My mom passed and she never told me the history behind the clock besides that it has been in the family for years.

It does not have any marking or tags outside besides the name Sessions with an hour glass picture stamped on the metal cover of the back of the clock. It had a tin dial. I think I remember her saying it was made around the turn of the century. There is also letters sctrached into the back of the clock. jpvt xxx Any info would be helpful.

The old clock

Sessions Mantel Clock

Sessions Mantel Clock

This was my Great-grandmothers clock that has been handed down to me. It was made by the Sessions Clock Company but I dont know when.

I have only found one other one like it on Ebay but the guy selling it knew about as much as I do about the one he had. What I'd like to know is when it was made, what the model is and whats it worth.

It runs, gongs right on the money, and keeps good time. The paper label on the back is almost gone so thats no help.

Cleaning out Grandma's back room

by Doug Shanks
(Charlotte, N.C.)

Sessions Mantel Clock

Sessions Mantel Clock

I just received a Sessions mantel clock, Webster model. It is the 8 day model, with 1/2 hour chime and hourly chime. Black case. 1 key, which winds the spring for the chime and spring for the clock. I have no idea the possible manufacture dates for this clock, it's value (though it's value is sentimental, not monetary), and how to possibly get it running (probably will have to go to a clock repairman.)

The pendulum can go about 30 seconds. Possibly the spring is weak, and I assume that the clock is badly needing oiling and cleaning, after sitting for 10+ years. The chime is beautiful and works if I delicately move the hands to get to the next hour. Any suggestions and values and time frame built? Circa 1930's? Thanks

Grandpa Dooley's Clock

Sessions Kitchen Clock

Sessions Kitchen Clock

I grew up winding this clock with my Grandpa Dooley and Dad. He passed when I was very young, and the clock was kept at my father and mother's home until he passed in 2001.

Most of the markings have been rubbed off, but I can tell the manufacturer was Sessions. Still works perfectly and I am sure it is at least 60 years old.

I have researched it, but couldn't find the history I was looking for. Model, year of manufacture, etc. Can you help?

Sessions United Model 313 Horse Mantle Clock

Hi there. I have a Sessions United model 313, 2 watt metal/bronze horse clock that I inherited from my grandma who was born in 1919.

It works great but I have been carrying it from duty station to duty station (military) and luckily no damage and in mint condition. I understand it is out of New York. Could you tell me more about it, a estimated appraisal price, and where I would go to auction it to a clock dealer.

Sessions Gold Star Clock

I would like to find out more about a Session Gold Star Clock that has been a part of our family at least dating back to my grandparents and perhaps, even longer.

Recently, our farm house which has been in the family for four generations was broken into and vandels threw this sentimental piece to the floor damaging the clock. It was previously in excellent condition and the label on the back reads "Sessions Clock Gold Start Eight Day-Half Hour Strike Cathedral Gong".

For insurance purposes we would like to have an estimate of the value. I have searched the internet but, am not finding this specific clock. Could someone please help? Thank you.

Clicking Clock

12 inch office clock made by the Sessions Clock Company, Forestville,Connecticut. An 1888 date on the original instructions are still with the clock. I have it in my office and it keeps excellent time. It is wound every five days. The clock hung in a classroom at St. Matthew Lutheran School, New Britain, Connecticut until the mid 1960's when all such classroom clocks were removed for battery operated clocks.

This old clock was my Wife's fathers. He died a long time ago and his brother had the clock. When he got sick he gave the clock back to my wife. The only thing that I can find out about the clock is that the company that made it hasn't been in business since 1903. I need to find out where to get this clock repaired.

Antique Sessions Mantel Wood Clock

by James
(Florida)

Sessions Mantel Clock (Front)

Sessions Mantel Clock (Front)

This is a Sessions Black Enamel Mantel Wood Clock from the early 1900's (probably 1903 or after). There are roman numerals, see attached picture for details.

I do not know which model this clock is and would like to know if anyone can identify this clock. Also on the back wood panel, there is a number 7 stamped in the wood, not sure of the meaning. The clock mechanics are similar to other Sessions clocks I have seen pictures of, but would like to know which part I would need since this clock does not tick-tock.

I can manually make it chime on the hour and ding on the half hour, but it does not run automatically. Both sides are wound but it does not work automatically. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Sessions Clock that still works

by Chris
(Chicago)

I have a working Sessions Clock (Sessions Clock Co. / Forestville, Conn. on the face of the clock) which I just recently started up again. But also on the face it has a "F S" indicator between an adjustment which I presume to mean that if the clock is running too fast or too slow I can fix this by turning the adjustment.

I made the mistake of turning this using the key, but now realize that I shouldn't. It is now running too slow (about 10 minutes per hour slow?). I don't know if I should turn the adjustment toward the F or S and by how much? No pic at the moment but I can get one. Any suggestions other than just turn a complete turn and watch the next hour pass?

Sessions Black Mantel Clock

Black Mantel Clock by Sessions

Black Mantel Clock by Sessions

This was my grandfather's clock. Not sure how he obtained it. I haven't been able to find any photographs of one that looks quite like this one.

It is 17 inches wide, 11 inches tall and 5.5 inches deep.


Eight Day, Half-hour strike, Cathedral Gong. It is in good shape with minor scratches and wear. In its original condition. Lions head ornament on each end. Porcelain dial.

The clock works, but not accurate. I am wondering what year it might be (guessing circa 1920) and what it might bring at auction or through an antique dealer.
