Antique Seth Thomas Sonora Mantle Clock, Westminster Chimes, WORKS
It is one of the most unique among chime clocks and one of the earliest Westminster Chime clocks ever created in the US. This is a Sonora Westminster Chime 8 Day parlor clock by "Seth Thomas" and dates to about 1900. It is a well made, working Mahogany Wood Cathedral or Beehive Case clock fashioned in the gothic style. The case has round wooden supports underneath in each corner. The dial has a hinged brass metal bezel surrounding and a convex, beveled glass crystal is inset into it; no cracks or chips that I can see. The bezel latches securely yet opens easily to allow access to the winding arbors and for setting the correct time. There is a slow/fast adjustment just below center and three winding arbors. Seth Thomas integrated two mechanical movements inside the case, one is his own tried-and-true movement for the time and chime at the top of the hour, and the other is solely for chiming the quarter hours notes in a Westminster format. There is a hinged wooden door in the rear with a wooden pull knob that opens easily to allow access to the key wind, mechanical movements inside the case as well as for setting the brass metal pendulum. The clock comes complete as shown with a brass metal pendulum and the two-way winding key. This is a magnificent clock and an ideal size for any mantle or desk measuring about 15" high, about 7 1/2" deep, and about 10 1/4 or so wide across the base. The clock works well, keeps good time, and the chimes are absolutely beautiful. Keep in mind this is an old clock and I don't know the service history so some adjustments or service may be necessary once the clock arrives at its new home. This clock is sure to "showcase" and display well in your home. Thanks for looking and I invite you to take a look at my other auctions for a variety of good vintage and antique items.
