It is in good running condition, keeping time and chiming properly. 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.
The silvered dial is nicely shaded and worn, giving it a genuine antique appearance. It also comes with the original and scarce to find "ST" hands. 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. Another excellent investment, as Seth Thomas clocks in any condition are highly sought after.
