Amazing Antique Seth Thomas Butternut Adamantine Clock 1895. Amazing Antique Seth Thomas Butternut Adamantine Clock.
This is an awesome looking clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. This is the actual date of manufacture stamped on the bottom board, and not a patent date. As seen in the pictures, this is a remarkable clock in very good condition.It features the original 1895 Seth Thomas movement, which has been cleaned and is in good running condition, keeping time and striking properly, counting the hour, i. 1 gong at 1:00, 2 gongs at 2:00, etc.
And announcing the half hour with a single gong. It is a quality movement that, if properly maintained, should last many lifetimes. The solid brass dial and bezel assembly is a nice one. These old solid brass dials are somewhat hard to find.
They look beautiful and last forever. The case is in very good structural condition, boasting full round column pillars and all of its original ornaments. The "Adamantine" finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800's, is in beautiful shape for its age. You may notice a little shrinkage at the corners and edges, and some cracking here and there, with minor dings, dents and scuffs, which is the nature of the Adamantine finish.
It is a thin laminate over soft wood and so shrinks, cracks and dents fairly easily with just normal use over time. However, although this clock is obviously aged being a hundred and twenty-two years old, the Adamantine is in pretty remarkable condition. The measurements are 17 ¼" wide x 11" high x 7 ¼ deep. This clock comes complete with a key and pendulum and is ready to place up on the mantle and enjoy. This helps insure that the new owner will have a satifying experience.
Be very sure to save all packaging material if there is a problem. All sales are final, (with the exception noted below). It is nearly impossible to find one in "mint" condition.
