It has the green marble-look Adamantine top and trim against the solid black Adamantine body. This clock has the heavier deluxe solid brass bezel and beveled glass dial assembly.
These old heavier solid brass bezels are somewhat rare and hard to find. The heavy beveled glass is original, so does have some light scratches on it. The paper dial is worn and evenly darkened as can be seen in the pictures. This clock also features the original 1904 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 bell toll. 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 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 thirteen years old, the Adamantine is in pretty remarkable condition. The measurements are 17" wide x 11 ½" high x 7 ½ 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.
