My experience is mostly with 19th century American clocks. I can answer repair questions and can identify most clocks of this period. I cannot answer questions about non-American clocks.
Many years buying, selling, and collecting American clocks.
No formal education in this area.

I was unable to find a Waterbury like this but it probably is. Clock companies copied designs from each other. The picture I am sending is of an Ansonia called Monarch. Your glass should be decorated.
Waterbury used a couple different movements in their gingerbreads. The earlier type is 3 1/8" between winding arbors (center to center). I have one of these marked 6 1/2". It has a 39 tooth EW. I also
Your dates are good. E.N. Welch became Sessions in 1903. I suspect it is fully wound. It should wind counter clockwise. It should have an even bet, which is more important than having it perfectly level
This is a fairly late item - probably 1930's-60's. A Seth Thomas from this era could have a German movement. I can't tell without looking inside. An American movement would be better. Copy and paste this
Many of these clocks are self-correcting and it might just need to run and chime a few hours. If not, you can remove the right hand weight which will silence the chime. Them wait until the time agrees
