Crystal Palace #4 137 viewsThis model was not illustrated in any catalog, but was referenced in the price lists.

The latter version has over-wind protection, making it a #4, extra.Jul 01, 2012

Crystal Palace #3 Early Version117 viewsThe patent covering the design of this clock also protects the Crystal Palace #1 clocks, since the design feature patented is the mirror and frame. The flat dial pan was later changed to the “sunken center.” Jul 01, 2012
