Harvard Clock Co. 9" Marine Clock for Kline Bro & Co.
An exceedingly rare marine clock. Harvard Clock Company was only in business from about 1880 to1884. Their total production was perhaps as few as 800 clocks. The 9" dial is engraved "Kline Bro. & Co., Philadelphia, PA". The bezel is 10 1/4" in diameter. The back flange is 10 7/8" in diameter. The bezel of the case is hinged. The movement is attached to the dial and hinges with the dial. The 7 jewel movemnet with serial number 241 is unsigned but, by it's details, was certainly made by the Harvard Clock Co. See the Chelsea Clock Museum webpage on Harvard Clock Co. for other examples of unsigned Harvard movements. The case has been polished and lacquered. The dial has been resilvered. The movement has been overhauled. The clock keeps excellent time.
