Very nice Seth Thomas white Adamantine mantel clock. This clock features the patented Seth Thomas Adamantine finish.
This is a celluloid finish that in the catalogs is described this way; "the finish is very durable and cannot be scratched or dented by any ordinary usage". The clock has a fully and properly restored model 89 C movement, one of the many models of 89 movements that were the workhorses of the Seth Thomas line for over 60 years. The catalog also gives 1906 as the date of manufacture. This clock strikes the hour on a coil gong and the half-hour on a brass bell.
This makes it easy, without seeing the clock, to know if it is striking the half-hour or the hour. The finish is in nice shape with the normal wear and tear that you would expect for an item that is over 100 years old. Some people call these "Wedding clocks" because White Adamantine was popular as wedding gifts.
The clock has a decent partial label. The clock has the model name written on the bottom of the clock in red pencil like Seth Thomas did with many of their Adamantine clocks.The dial pan and bezel are original but I believe that the paper dial has been replaced at some point. I ask you to please examine the 12 high resolution pictures carefully as they provide much of the description for this fine timepiece. Case dimensions are 17.75 inches wide, 11.25 inches high and 6.5 inches deep. Clock comes complete with the original pendulum and a quality replica winding key.
