Item ID: 2347 - James Rodgers 10" Marine Clock. An exceedingly rare large dial marine clock. James Rodgers worked in New York City in the mid 1800's and was most known for his tower clocks which were installed in many churches in New York City. Trinity Church Wall St. was probably his most famous tower clock. He also made marine clocks and regulators. Surprisingly very few of his clocks of any type are known to exist today. This 10" dial marine clock is a fine example of his work. The bezel of the case hinges at 3 as does the dial and attached movement. The finely engraved dial and blued steel moon hands are are typical of Rodgers quality workmanship. The fine quality movement is encased in dust covers. The movement is signed J. Rodgers, New York.

Ca. 1863 American Steam Gauge Ships Clock for the ship "Ontario". The 8 1/2" dial is engraved with Roman numerals and the name of the ship Ontario which is highlighted with delicate brackets and flourishes. At the bottom the dial is engraved with the number 9484 which is also stamped inside the case at 6 o'clock. The front bezel is 10" and the back flange is 11". The bezel is hinged as is the dial. The Seth Thomas 30 hour time only movement is mounted to the back of the dial and is regulated by opening the bezel and the dial. The clock has been restored to superb condition. According to "The History of American Steam Navigation" by John Morrison, the Ontario was a mail ship on Lake Ontario in the late 1850's to mid 1860's. The Ontario was 222' x 32' x 12' with a beam engine 50" x 11'. The building of railroads along the shore of the lake destroyed the mail line business and in 1865 the Ontario was brought safely down the rapids of the St Lawrence to the Atlantic coast where it was sold to a foreign buyer about 1867. Evidently running the rapids in vessels of this size was quite a feat!
