Great concave glass in the bezel over the face of the clock. No cracking or blistering to the glass. Black numbering on the white colored tin clock face. The clock face shows some wear to the finish. Has Seth Thomas noted in the middle of the clock face and USA at the bottom of the clock face. The adamantine wood case is all there. Beautiful tambour style to the case. The finish on the case is in very nice shape. Some minor chipping to the finish. The rear door is still securely attached to the case by the hinges as is the knob for it. Gold colored metal ball feet on the clock case. The bezel is securely attached to the case.
The #89 brass movement is run by a pendulum. Nice gong sound on this clock with the gong rod. Gave the rear plate pivots and bushings a cleaning and oiling. The two springs feel sound when keyed.The clock comes with a vintage wind key and the pendulum bob that came with it. He clock is in running, and striking condition. The clock stands 9.75" tall, by 17" across, by 5-5/16 wide.
