Treasure Chest Thursday – Attleboro Improved Royal “Kitchen” Style Clock
My 3rd great grandfather, Eli D. Waits, scratched his name (“E. Waits”) into the back of the pendulum from this “kitchen” style clock, sold by the Attleboro Clock Company. He most likely purchased the clock in the Lancaster, Ohio area.
According to the website, Attleboro Clock Co., little is known about these clocks. They were produced between 1890 and 1915, manufactured by the Waterbury, Ansonia, E. Ingraham, or Sessions companies, and sold under the Attleboro Clock Company name.
It is unknown whether the dial of this clock has been replaced, as they usually have “Attleboro Clock Co., Attleboro, Mass.” printed on them, where ours does not. It may have been repaired in the 1970s or 80s. I’m planning on having the clock appraised in the near future and will update the blog with the information when available.
