Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Or Bookcase Clock Serviced & Running. This is another nice condition "Adamantine" finish 8 day time and strike mantle clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. In Thomaston, Connecticut during the early 1900's. This clock features the original signed Seth Thomas #89 series movement, which has been cleaned and serviced, 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 toll.It is a quality movement that, if properly maintained, should last many lifetimes. This clock is in the dark brown adamantine that was probably meant to simulate walnut, or perhaps brown marble. 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. The measurements are 9 ¼" wide x 9 ½" high x 6 deep. The dial and bezel assembly is in nice condition. The silvered dial has nice age shading/staining as can be seen in the pictures, giving it a genuine aged/antique appearance. This clock comes complete with the key and the original 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. 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.
