Seth Thomas Westminster Sonora Chimes Mantle Clock. This clock was made by The Seth Thomas Clock Company of Connecticut. The case is made of beautiful mahogany Adamantine in great condition. This clock is a bit different from other Westminster chime clocks, there are two movements.
The first one is a #89 movement that controls the time and strike. It strikes on the hour on one of the four bells. The other movement is a #90 that controls the Westminster chimes on four Bronze bells. The dial is different also because it is porcelain, unusual for this clock because most were metal or celluloid.The porcelain is in good condition, a few cracks or chips around the winding holes. Black fancy Arabic numerals, slow/fast key adjustment by key, Seth Thomas, Sonora Chimes all are on the dial. There are two winding holes on the dial, but the Sonora Chimes winding hole is on the right side of the dial ring.
See photos On the right side of the case is a lever to silent the chimes. There is a video of the chimes, I could not believe how beautiful the chimes sound, very unexpected. Circa 1910 Dimensions are Height 12.5, Width 11", Depth 7.5", and Weight 10 lbs.
