Electric Chauncey Jerome Mantel Clock
I've had this clock for many years!!! I was excited that I finally owned a Chauncey Jerome Clock.
When I started researching this clock, Chauncey Jerome died in 1868. So how could this be a Chauncey Jerome Electric Clock with Afton Chimes, when electricity wasn't used widely in the US until after the 1890's as far as I could research.
I would love to know if anyone has any knowledge about this clock. It says on the instructions, "Chauncey Jerome, INC., 500 Fifth Ave. New York City". Return to factories in New Haven, Connecticut.
It has several patent numbers on it. Chauncey Jerome is printed on the face of the clock also.
Can anyone help me with this mystery? Thanks for your time if you do.
