Vintage Seth Thomas Double Spring Railroad Clock Not Running. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself!Nice project clock for one of you out there. Nice looking wall clock here. Made by the Seth Thomas Company of Thomaston, MA. Beautiful silver colored tin face on this clock. The numbering and minute markings are impressed into the tin.
"Seth Thomas" is noted at the bottom middle the face. The hands match and look appropriate to the clock. Has a slow/fast dial on the front of the face and the lever can be seen to make the appropriate adjustment.
The brass case is all there. No dings or dents to the metal case. Does show some minor gold colored lacquer loss to the case. The case has a hinged bezel. Securely attached to the case.
The glass is intact, no cracks or blistering to the glass. There are no ST logo markings on the back plate of the movement. Did not check the front plate. The clock is most likely a 16 day mechanical brass movement with the two spring winds. The movement attempts to run, but one of the bushings in the center gear is real worn and stops it from doing so within a few seconds.
The wind springs feel sound when keyed. The clock will come with a wind key.The Seth Thomas Double Wind Railroad Clock stands 6-7/8" across by the bezel, by 7" across by the back plate, by 3-7/16 wide. The clock face is 5 across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description. 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 clock meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it.
So again, ask all questions you have, come see in person or send a friend to see the clock on your behalf, prior to deciding to acquire it. Don't be shy, we are always open to reasonable suggestions! This clock is just waiting for the right collector out there to acquire and refurbish for their collection.
