Antique Seth Thomas, R. Kaiser 15 Day "Orchid No. 1 Mantle Clock Runs Fantastic
This is a Seth Thomas, R. Kaiser "Orchid No. 1 Brass Mantle Clock. The brass case is in pretty nice condition with only minor scratches and small signs of wear. The porcelain dial is perfect and the hands are original. The fancy embossed French style pendulum is I believe the original and is in very nice condition. The movement is signed "R. Kaiser", who designed movements for Seth Thomas Sons and Co. it has the small "ST" logo; I believe this movement was meant to compete with French imports. I have not had this clock long enough to watch it but I do believe it is a 15 day movement. I do see two issues one is the back door glass it is not beveled so my guess is it is a replacement the glass is very old it is wavy and has bubbles so it was replaced some time ago!!! There is a small flake in on side glass and the back door has a tight fit. This clock runs and chimes great and has a very nice old patina. The clock stands about 10 1/2" it is 7 3/4" at widest point across the foot and it weighs about 10.5 pounds. I think the key is original also but I'm not 100% sure on that fact!!! Thank you for your interest!
All Items will be shipped within a 24 hour after payment isreceived on account cleared!!! In the case of a Holiday it may take a bit longer!!! Only Looks At The Star Ratings response Means Nothing To Them!!!! Good response is nice but if you beat me up on the star rating that's where the damage to a seller comes from!!!!!! If you lose the small sellers like me that made a great place to find cool and different stuff you might as well shop at Walmart! but don't expect to find anything remotely Victorian!! The small sellers are the hunters & gatherers the guy selling 5000 of the same item is not!!! So please try to be somewhat kind because sadly it's really easy to hurt us with those star ratings!!!Thank you Tom
