Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine 8 Day Mantle Clock c. Here is a nice condition "Adamantine" finish 8 day time and strike mantle clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. In Thomaston, Connecticut right around the year 1900.
It has the green marble-look Adamantine top and trim against the solid black Adamantine body. All of the original feet and ornaments remain and are in great shape. And, although their finish is worn, it is original.
The solid brass bezel and paper over zinc dial assembly is in nice shape for its age, but the dial does appear aged and worn. This clock features a signed Seth Thomas #89 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 "Adamantine" finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800's, is in good 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 nearly 120 years old, the Adamantine is in pretty remarkable condition. The measurements are 16 ¾" wide x 11" high x 7 deep.
This clock comes complete with a key and the original 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.
If a clock has damage from misuse, it will be noted. If a clock is running properly when it arrives... Thats about the best we can do.
