Here is a late-model oak kitchen clock, made December 1934 (12 34 date code on the movement). The oak kitchen clock became popular around 1900 (the walnut-cased models were popular earlier, beginning about the 1880s). Many of the walnut cased clocks have carving, but the designs were pressed into the oak cases.
This clock is 21 5/8 inches tall and 14 3/4 inches wide. The paper dial has a 4 7/8 inch minute track (center to center), and outside measurement from diamond to diamond is 5 1/32 inches. The minute hand is 2 7/16 inches long.
Repair job 6106. I polished the pivots and installed 14 bushings. A previous repairer installed bronze bushings that were too short.
The mainspring sizes are as follows:
Time: 3/4 x 0.0173 inch
Strike: 3/4 x 0.0174 inch
