History of Seth Thomas Adamantine Antique Mantel Clocks In the 1860s, French clocks in slate, onyx or marble cases became popular in the United States.
These cases were expensive, so the American clock manufacturers produced similar looking cases made of iron or wood. These clocks have become known to collectors as Black Mantel Clocks, and were popular from 1880 to 1931. Seth Thomas made clocks in marble cases for a short time, from 1887 to ca. They also made clocks in iron cases finished in black enamel, from 1892 to ca. Seth Thomas is well known for their Adamantine black mantel clocks, which were made starting in 1882.
Adamantine is a celluloid veneer, glued to the wood case. Adamantine veneer was made in black and white, and in colored patterns to replicate wood grain, onyx and marble.
Adamantine veneer was developed by the Celluloid Manufacturing Company of New York City, and was covered by U. Patent number 232,037, dated September 7, 1880. NOTE: All of my clocks are antiques and many are over 100 years old.
Though each clock has gone thru a major restoration, there will be small flaws and blemishes consistent with a clock over 100 years old. Check the pictures as they say much more than words. I dont usually list every flaw or blemish as the pictures show a much better description than can be listed.What you see in the picture is what you get, nothing more. Please use care when unpacking an antique clock. THIS INCLUDES PROPER LEVELING AT HOME AND SOME FINE ADJUSTMENT TO THE REGULATION.
