It is extremely rare to see this model in red. The signed Seth Thomas 8 day time and strike movement has just 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 about as nice as you'll find. 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, scuffs, and touch-ups 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.This particular clock just came out of an antique clock collector's estate. He had many clocks and kept them in nice condition. The brass bezel and dial assembly is also in good shape. The paper dial shows some sign of wear but is in above average condition compared to most that have survived 115+ years.
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 ensure that the new owner will have a satisfying 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, that is about the best we can do. All sales for this type of item are final.
