Seth Thomas Sonora 4 Bell Original Westminster Chime Shelf Mantle Clock Runs VGC. Seth Thomas Clock Company, Thomaston Conn. Original 6 inch Seth Thomas convex silvered dial with the Seth Thomas stampings on the dial.
Dial is original and in untouched condition. Third winder located on the numeral three that powers the Sonora Chime unit, there is a brass shutoff lever on the right side of this clock for this unit. This clock is equipped with the Seth Thomas no 89 O movement and the Seth Thomas no.90B movement for the resonated bells. This clock also retains its original convex beveled glass and compression fit brass bezel to protect the dial. The original mahogany finish cabinet is in very good condition there are no signs of abuse or neglect to this well built cabinet. There are two little knicks on the top front corners on the left side corners. Other than that it is amazing the clock's condition after 100 years.
The clock cabinet still has the nice clean appearance. This one has 100 years of natural aging to it. This clock measures 18 1/2 inches in height by 13 1/2 inches in width at the base. The clocks movements are in very good operating condition. The movement is the famous 89 O model this is a spring wound eight day movement that trips the Sonora chime movement every fifteen minutes on the quarter hours to play a tune leading up to the hour where it plays the tune and counts the hour on the deep toned resonated Seth Thomas bells they installed in these high quality clocks.Both movements have the Seth Thomas stamps and have been serviced. This clock will require some minor adjustment in the setting up of the clock as this is common and normal. The separate movement for the Sonora Chime is stamped "90B". The strike hammers need to be adjusted and possibly the leather tips replaced on the strike hammers. The original Seth Thomas pendulum weight and the correct Seth Thomas chime clock key will also be sent as well.
Rear perforated opening in the back door with the sound cloth to allow the resonated sound from the bells to sound out loud. These are a highly sought after Seth Thomas clock because of the Sonora resonated bell strike and its Westminster chime also. I have many other quality shelf mantel and wall clocks for you to choose from.

Add me to your Favorite Sellers. I started working on clocks in 1971 when I was in Junior High School I have a great passion for these old clocks and have always shopped for the best in quality and originality. Unless otherwise stated your clock will arrive in great condition you will not have to start repairing it or replacing items to get it in running condition. I also sell parts, restoration clocks and these will be recognized in this manner. My packaging on the clocks are a very professional packing job with no corners cut to save on bubble wrap or styrofoam.
I prefer to place extra packing them have the clock arrive damaged because enough was not placed. I have been a member of the NAWCC since 1971 and have served as the Chapter President for many years.
