Large Dial "Chelsea" Clocks

flagline.gif (1024 bytes)

From 1897 until approximately 1914, "Chelsea" Clock Company kept very detailed sales records of each clock sold.  This detail included serial number, date sold, original customer, dial size/type, case type/finish, and movement type.  The total number of clocks of all kinds produced during this period was just under 98,000.  This number included 284 12" dial clocks of all types.  This number averages just under 17 clocks per year for the total period.  During the golden years of 12" production, 1906 to 1913, production just barely exceeded 20 clocks per year.  It is interesting to note that striking clock production, in 12" size, did not begin until 1903 and  any significant production of these clocks did not begin until 1905.  After 1914, the factory records are not as detailed, and size of clocks was generally omitted.  12" dial striking clocks were offered in "Chelsea" catalogs until 1926 and 12" dial time only clocks were offered until 1941.    Special orders were available after these dates, however, production was very low.   Although the exact numbers of 12" clocks produced after 1914 can only be estimated,  study of the numbers and types of these clocks produced prior to 1914 serves as a basis for comparison.   The following table is the record of the 284 12" clocks produced between 1897 and 1914.  This information is the most detailed that can be determined from the factory records and is a combination of  sales records and movement type records.  Movement types are listed as  TO, time only, STKR, house strike, and SB, ship's bell.  Dial types are listed as SPCL, special, SPCLGr, special grand, or E?P, where the record does not indicate if the dial was engraved or painted..  Case type entries can be decoded with a review of the general information pages and available case styles shown in period catalogs.  See the 1906, 1911, and 1923 catalogs on this website.  It is interesting to note the variety of retailers that sold "Chelsea" clocks. Those serial numbers shown in bold are known to exist in present day collections.

After 1914 Chelsea Clock Company did not record clock record data with the same detail as in pre1914 records. Subsequently dial size and type of case was generally omitted after 1914.  Although Chelsea continued to offer striking 12" clocks until 1926 and time only 12" clocks until 1941 in their catalogs, the sales records do not indicate the size of the clock sold in most cases.  Striking and non striking 12" clocks were manufactured after the dates they were withdrawn from the catalogs, but the clocks were produced in extremely low numbers.  After 1914 the number of 12" clocks produced can only be estimated and in most cases those clocks which are known to exist today, are the only record of the numbers produced.   The following 12" clocks were produced after 1914.  Although this list is just a small percentage of the clocks produced after 1914 it serves as the best indication of the types, date, and numbers of 12" clocks produced after 1914.  As this record grows, a better history of 12" clocks produced after 1914 will emerge.  If you have information on 12" clocks that would add to this history, please contact the Chelsea Clock Museum.  Those serial numbers shown in bold are known to exist in present day collections.
