Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock 1904 Serviced and Running
Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock 1904 Serviced and Running. This is a nice condition "Adamantine" finish 8 day time and strike mantle clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. In Thomaston, Connecticut 118 years ago. This clock has the heavier deluxe solid cast brass bezel and beveled glass dial assembly. These old heavier solid brass bezels are somewhat rare and hard to find. The heavy beveled glass is original, so may some light scratches on it. The paper dial is nicely aged and nicer than you usually find them. This clock also features the original signed Seth Thomas #89 movement, which has been cleaned and is in good running condition, keeping time and striking properly, counting the hour, i. 1 gong at 1:00, 2 gongs at 2:00, etc. On an antique cathedral gong, and announcing the half hour with a single bell toll. It is a quality movement that, if properly maintained, should last many lifetimes. The "Adamantine" finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800's, is in very nice shape for its age. You may notice a little shrinkage at the corners and edges, and some cracking here and there, with minor dings, and scuffs, 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.
However, although this clock is obviously aged being a hundred and eighteen years old, the Adamantine, as stated, is in good condition, as can be seen in the pictures. There are some marks/dings from over the years, but all in all, it is very nice looking.
The measurements are 17 ¼" wide x 11 ½" high x 7 ½ deep. This clock comes complete with the original key and pendulum and is ready to place up on the mantle and enjoy.
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.
