Antique Seth Thomas Quarter Hour Chiming Mantle Clock In Running Condition. This is a very nice looking mantle clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. In the USA that features a very high quality #89 series eight day time and quarter hour chime movement. We wound it up and found that it runs and chimes for a full week, but it may need adjustments since it has not been serviced. It It is a fairly rare model, the #89L, that is a quarter hour chiming movement.
It chimes by striking two chime rods in alternating sequence. On the quarter hour it chimes one double alternating chime, on the half hour it chimes two sets of alternating chimes, on the three quarter hour it chimes three sets of alternating chimes, and then on the hour it counts the number of the hour with single chimes... If it were 8:00, it would chime 8 single chimes, etc. Timeless in styling, this clock has already lasted nearly 100 years and with proper care should easily last another hundred.
The signed silvered dial and solid brass bezel assembly is in good condition for its age and very nice looking. Expect the usual wear, light scratching, etc, that is normally found on a dial of this age. The clock case itself is also in good condition.
The original finish is very nice for as old as it is. 17 ½" long x 9 ½" high x 6 ¼ deep. This clock is in overall good condition and would make a lovely addition to any home or antique shop.
