Kroeber Regulator No. 31 Wall Clock

August 25, 2012 | By | 1 Reply More

This mahogany-cased wall clock was made by F. Kroeber, New York, but it has a nameplate and instruction label of “Cook & Jaques” inside the case. The movement is labeled “F. Kroeber, New York”

Kroeber probably bought the movement from a maker such as Noah Pomeroy, who commonly made the type of escapement used in this clock (strip deadbeat),

See more photos.

This clock has a special pendulum with an adjusting scale, patented by F. Kroeber on March 29, 1881.

The case is 29 3/4 inches long without the bottom finial.

Repair job 5840. disassembled and cleaned, no repair.

    I have this exact clock that has been handed down from my family. Mine hung in the Railroad station in Clarksville, OH and the base is inscribed with PC&S for Penn Central and Southern Line. My great grandfather was the station master.

    I was excited to see this post as I had never been able to find out anything about this clock. If you have any other info about it I would greatly appreciate it.
