This is a huge Seth Thomas Pennsylvania railroad station clock. I believe the clock to be 100% legitimate.
The dial is signed Seth Thomas with PRR 4313 stenciled under the Seth Thomas. The back of the the dial also has some pencil notes that say 4313.There is a brass tag on the bottom of the bezel that has PRR 4313 stamped on it. I think that the clock was from a Pittsburgh station. The clock is in very nice original condition. It was a commercially used piece so there are a few dings but nothing to mention specifically. I believe this to be an older clock (1900 or earlier) because the glass is old and wavy and the patina appears to be of that era.
The movement is stamped Seth Thomas. It is their large 30 day, double spring, time-only commercial movement with a deadbeat escapement and maintaining power for accuracy. It is a possible that the railroad switched movements over the years, but they would have used the same model movement.The clock uses a large, heavy bracket to hold the movement. This allows for an easy swap, or removal for repair. The case resembles the Seth Thomas Arcade but I dont believe that it is.
Although the movement, dial and hands are the same as seen on the Arcade, the case dimensions and construction are a little different. This is a case that may have been custom made for the railroad or maybe a predecessor to the Arcade.
