- Seth Thomas and Sonora Bells, (1912-). Seth Thomas acquired rights to the patent in 1912 from William Hoschke who patented the Sonora configuration in 4/18/1908 for Sonora Chime Co, NYC (1906-1929). The patent involved an expansive sound chamber.
- ST Model 2000 in Doric case, Cathedral top (introduced 1914). I understand this is the model and name as marketed by Seth Thomas.
- Westminster [Quarters] chime, aka Cambridge chimes, The tune was adapted in mid 19th century for “Big Ben” in the famous clock tower at Westminster Quarters or Palace of Westminster, London. This tune originated from St Mary the Great, Cambridge. It was written in 1793 for the new clock at St Mary’s, the Great, the University Church in Cambridge.
- Whittington chime, aka St Mary’s chimes, from Sy Mary-le-bow, London. It’s use originating from an English theater story adapted from the life of Richard Whittington on hearing the tune ringing from St Mary-le-bow in London in 1392. This seemed to reinvigorate the boy to “Turn again Dick Whittington” and he went on to find his fortune and later become Mayor of London. He purportedly used the tune as a campaign song for his terms as mayor.
