It is one of the few models made with six full round celluloid columns. The signed Seth Thomas 8 day time and strike movement has been serviced and is in good running and gonging order. The "Adamantine" finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800's, is in good shape for its age. You usually will notice a little shrinkage at the corners and edges and some cracking here and there, as well as plenty of 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. The brass bezel and dial assembly is also in pretty good condition. The paper dial is somewhat aged and worn, but still very acceptable.
As stated, it runs well, keeps time and gongs properly. It counts each hour on a mellow sounding antique cathedral gong, i. 1 gong at 1:00, 2 gongs at 2:00, etc. And announces each half hour with a single brass bell chime.
This clock measures 18" wide x 11" high x 7 ½ deep, and comes complete with a key and the original pendulum. This helps insure that the new owner will have a satifying experience.
