Boston Catalog 1890

The Boston Clock Company operated from 1884 to 1894. During this period, Boston expanded the time only clocks of the Harvard Clock Company to include striking clocks. These striking clocks included carriage clocks, crystal regulators, and a wide variety of marble mantle clocks. In addition, in 1893, Boston patented a ship's bell clock in a unique case of their own design. Unfortunately the only catalog published by the Boston Clock Company was published in 1890 and did not include this ship's bell clock. It was however shown in the Vermont Catalog of 1900 in a case of Vermont's own design. The Boston catalog of 1890 shown here, in part, shows all but the wide variety of marble and onyx mantle clocks. Many Boston clocks were one of a kind or special orders and are not shown in this catalog.
