This antique clock was made during the 1920's by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. The 8 day mechanical clock has a key wound 89AL mechanism and features a beehive style mahogany wood case, brass bezel with convex glass, and a silver face with black hands and numerals. The clock measures 10.5" high x 8" wide x 5 deep and comes complete with key and pendulum. Both clock and chime mechanism wind smoothly and the clock runs when wound.It runs fast, so time accuracy cannot be guaranteed as the clock will need some adjustment, cleaning or oiling. The chime mechanism strikes on the hour and half hour, but has a muffled clicking sound for some reason.
The wooden case is in very good shape and still retains its reddish brown finish. The rear door hinges are tight and the door latches securely. The case shows typical minor wear and light scratches consistent with age and use. The rear door has gone dry over the years and shows light splits in the wood with a noticeable 2 split on the exterior of the door along the bottom.
The brass bezel, key and pendulum have tarnished over time and the face of the clock has numerous scratch marks. Otherwise, this antique clock is in very good shape for its age!
