"Walter Clocks: A Canadian Mystery Solved" in the NAWCC Bulletin 2015

| « Return to previous page |


Walter Stonkus came from Lithuania to Toronto in 1927.  By the late 1930s he was making wood cases for his own line of mantel clocks, in which he installed imported spring-driven pendulum movements.  After a break to manufacture items for Canada'a war effort, at the end of WWII he resumed the production of mantel clocks that continued well into the 1950s.
