Featured in this lot is this 1910-1920s Sessions mantle clock. William E. Sessions, owner of the Bristol, Connecticut-based Sessions Foundry Company, and his nephew A.L. Sessions acquired the majority stake in the startup clockmaker E.N. Welch Company in 1902 as it was about to close. Early in 1903, E.N. Welch changed its name to Sessions Clock Company, and all clock components—movements, dials, artwork and castings, and cases—were still made in the surrounding area of Forestville. Although the Welch brand was gradually phased out, by 1920 it had all but disappeared. While production continued in Connecticut, Sessions was sold to Consolidated Electronics Industries Corporation in New York circa 1958. The Connecticut office was closed after a workers' strike in 1968, and Sessions was sold to United Metal Goods Company. The Sessions Company stopped producing clocks in 1969. The clock shows a wood construction and features two faux marble pillars on the left and right sides. The clock face shows a white background with black colored numbers and hands. The internal components appear to work slightly with some assistance but the clock cannot be wound. The clock is missing the pendulum but comes with a Vigor CM-600 winding key from Germany. The clock shows fair condition with wear to the case and internal components but no signs of obvious damage are present. The clock measures 5 5/8" L x 18 1/4" W x 11 1/2" H. The clock weighs approximately 8 pounds and 12 ounces.
