Antique Seth Thomas - Sonora Chime - Clock Porcelain Dial 17" Deluxe Model Oak:
I do not profit from postage! Any payment that exceeds actual cost will be refunded. BUY-IT-NOW has not only ruined the fun of , but has made it easy for sellers to hide shipping cost in the sale and call it "free shipping". You, the buyer should know shipping is not free. Therefore,I state the actual shipping cost to be honest, not hide it in the sale.
I use Fedex, USPSor UPS for shipping
SORRY, NO INTERNATIONAL is a large 17" premium grade Seth Thomas Sonora Chime clock. This is a handsome, fine looking clock in excellent condition. Straight from my personal collection where it was well taken care of for many years. The solid oak case is in great shape with, I believe,the original finish. This is the deluxe model with the signed 7 ½" porcelain dial with the "chime-silent" opening. It is in stunning condition with, zero,no cracks or hairlinesbut for some small flakes around the winding arbor holes. This model has the heavy 8+3/4" cast brass bezel with a convex beveled glass. It comes with pendulum and key. It is in good running and chiming order, playing Westminster chimes on each quarter hour on four resonant bells with theextraordinary timbre for which they were known. The movements were recently overhauled and are clean. All in all, this clock is a rare one in this wonderfulcondition. This clock weighs over 16 pounds !! This will be shipped double boxed and in a large 24" by 18" by 18" box. We use all new and ample packing material for safe shipping. This will be shipped via FedEx or UPS.

Please study the pictures before offerding, ask questions if you are unclear about anything. Be sure the item is what you want before offerding. We describe items to the best of our ability and belief. We are not experts in every field. You may know more about certain items than we do. If you have information, share it with us, your knowledge is welcome and helpful. In the end, YOU are the judge as to quality and value. We do take returns if we have made a gross error.
Most items are used or antique and may show some minor wear. Any wear that is significant will always be described and photographed. I will photograph and/or describe this to the best of my ability. The photographs I take are very good and show well, if you require more, let me know. Because of some "nit pickers", all measurements are to be considered close and approximate. Mechanical items, such as clocks and clock movements are sold without warranty. I will tell you if they are working, or not, at time of listing. Antique clock movements can be complex and delicate, often needing a bit of adjustment. I take a long time to study an item prior to listing. I know my items well, do not try to switch or ask for partial refund for simulated or false damage, as I have had in the past. I use new boxes and packing material. To protect us both, I video ALL items as they are packed to protect against fraud and shippers that may not want to pay damage insurance if they break items due to mishandling. However, I have not hade a single damage claim in over 4 years...we pack well! We will not take advantage of you for shipping fees. We almost always loose several dollars for shipping material, to top that, takes their percentage of shipping costs. What's that all
