Only exception is a crack in the bottom board, see pic. Some very minor crazing to the clock case finish. Some wear to the finish along the edges.Not sure which Seth Thomas model this clock is. If any of you know, please let us know. Your identity would be kept anonymous. Great enamel paint on metal face with "Seth Thomas" in Script about a 1/3 of way down on face. No hairlines or cracks in the face.
Gold colored metal grommets around the wind holes. The concave glass over the face is intact, no cracks or blistering. The gold colored bezel that holds the glass in place is securely attached to the case by the hinge assembly. The hands match and look appropriate to the clock.
The hands are a little loose at center point, front to back, as need washer to tighten up. The clock was in running and striking condition when we acquired.
We have just oiled the bushing and pivot points. The clock strikes the hours on the hour, and one strike on the half hour.
Beautifully rich gong sound for a smaller clock. There is no representation that the clock is in original condition, or will continue to be in working order. The brass movement has the "ST" logo on it. The clock stands 9.75" tall, by 7-3/8" across, by 5.75 wide (by glass & knob). The clock face is 3.5 across.
Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks.Make sure that this item meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. So again, ask all questions you have, come see in person (Georgetown, DE) or send a friend to see the piece on your behalf, prior to deciding to acquire it.
