SETH THOMAS CLOCK COMPANY
Thomas was born in Wolcott, Connecticut in 1785, went to work for clockmaker
Eli Terry in 1807, bought out Terry’s factory (together with Silas Hoadley) in
1810, and in December 1813 bought out Heman Clark’s clockmaking business in
continued Clark’s wooden movement tall clock production, and about 1817 began
making the wooden movement shelf clock. These were cased in pillar and scroll
cases until 1830, when the bronze looking glass and other styles became
popular. In 1842, brass movements were introduced, and first cased in the
popular O.G. case (which was made until 1913). Wood movements were phased out
in 1845. In 1853 Mr. Thomas incorporated the Seth Thomas Clock Company, so that
the business would outlive him. Mr. Thomas died in 1859, and Plymouth Hollow
was renamed Thomaston in his honor in 1865.
Thomas was very conservative, and after his death many new styles of clocks
were introduced by his sons. Regulator clocks were introduced in 1860. The
patterns and machinery for these had been purchased in 1859 from the creditors
of bankrupt clockmaker Silas B. Terry. Spring driven clocks were introduced ca.
1855–1860. Perpetual calendar clocks were made from ca. 1863–1917. Some of the
most popular later types include walnut kitchen clocks, made from 1884–1909;
marble clocks, 1887–ca. 1895; black (Adamantine finish) wood mantel clocks, ca.
1885–1917; black enameled iron cased clocks, 1892–ca. 1895; oak kitchen clocks,
1890–ca. 1915; tambour clocks, introduced in 1904; chime clocks, introduced in
1909; and electric A/C clocks, introduced in 1928.
