THIS IS THE 1913 VERSION OF THE ETON - VERY SCARCE IN THIS SUPERIOR CONDITION – SOUGHT BY COLLECTORS AND THOSE INTERESTED IN A HIGH GRADE SETH THOMAS ANTIQUE SHELF OR TABLE CABINET CLOCK FROM THE EARLY 1900’S.

THE ETON IS ANOTHER ONE I TRULY HATE TO PART WITH!!! THE CLOCK CAN BEST BE DESCRIBED AS A UNIQUE, CHARMING AND EYE CATCHING ORIGINAL – A DELIGHT TO VIEW, AND EASY TO DISPLAY IN ANY DECORATIVE SETTING. YOU WILL LOVE THIS CLOCK!!! – I KNOW I DO!!! THE PORCELAIN DIAL IS CLEAN AND BRIGHT WHITE WITH BLACK ARABIC NUMERALS. COMPLEMENTING THE DIAL ARE THE ST SIGNATURE SPADE STYLE HOUR AND MINUTE HANDS

THE ORIGINAL RICH-PATINA, AGED DULL RUBBED SHELLAC FINISH HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY RETAINED, PRESERVED, CONDITIONED AND RESTORED. THE COMPLEMENTING MOULDINGS AND FULL 180 DEGREE BONNET OVER THE DIAL ON THE CABINET FRONT AND THE SIDES IS WELL PRESERVED, AND ACCENTS THIS CLOCK’S CHARACTER, BOTH AS AN ANTIQUE AND AS A DECORATIVE ACCESSORY WHEN DISPLAYED.

ONE OF THE MOST NOTED AND SOUGHT AFTER SETH CABINET CLOCK IS THE “ETON” BECAUSE OF ITS INSPIRED DESIGN, FLEXIBLE PLACEMENT OPTIONS, AND THE HIGHEST GRADE COMPONENTS USED. FOR EXAMPLE, THE FINEST ROUND 48J POLISHED PLATE MOVEMENT, WITH HARDENED PIVOTS, CUT PINIONS AND THICK POLISHED BACK PLATE IS IN THE ETON.

THUS WITH THE “ETON” SETH THOMAS PRODUCED A EUROPEAN INSPIRED CABINET CLOCK ON A LEVEL WITH THE FINEST WORKS OF THE DAY, AND ALSO PRODUCED A FINE MOVEMENT EQUAL TO – EVEN BETTER - THAN THE SUPERB FRENCH MOVEMENTS OF THAT PERIOD.

THE ETON HAS VERSATILE PLACEMENT FLEXIBILITY AND EXCELLENT PRESENTATION IN LITERALLY ANY AREA OF THE HOME, OR OFFICE FOR THAT MATTER. THIS SETH THOMAS IS A CHARMING AND EYE CATCHING DORIC ARCH CABINET CLOCK.

CABINET FEATURES INCLUDE:

THE ETON – 1913 IS A DELIGHT TO VIEW, AND JUST THE RIGHT SIZE - EASY TO DISPLAY IN ANY DECORATIVE SETTING. IT CAN BE PLACED PRACTICALLY ANYWHERE BECAUSE THE ETON CAN BE ADMIRED BY ITSELF OR AS PART OF A DECORATIVE GROUPING.

I ASK THAT YOU ALLOW THE TEXT AND HIGH RESOLUTION SUPERSIZE PICTURES TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!!!

ON THE DIAL THE TIME MAINSPRING WIND SHAFT IS LOCATED NEAR NUMERAL 5 AND THE STRIKE MAINSPRING WIND SHAFT IS NEAR NUMERAL 7. ABOVE THE NUMERAL 12 IS A SMALLER HOLE WITH ACCESS TO THE FASTER/SLOWER ADJUSTMENT SHAFT, USING THE OPPOSITE END OF THE CLOCK KEY.

A CLOSE IN VIEW OF THE CATHEDRAL SPIRAL GONG IS SHOWN IN SUPERSIZE PHOTO 11.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO HEAR THE ETON VIA THE ATTACHED E COMMERCE PLAYER SOUND FILES. THE NOTES STRUCK FROM THIS PARTICULAR CATHEDRAL GONG HAVE A WONDERFUL AND LINGERING DECAY. LISTEN AND YOU WILL HEAR WHAT I MEAN.

IN THE ANTIQUES TRADE, IT WAS RECENTLY NOTED THAT QUALITY ANTIQUE CLOCK MARKET VALUES CONTINUE TO RISE, DESPITE THE BEGINNINGS OF A LEVELING OFF AND PROJECTED DECLINE OF VALUES IN CERTAIN OTHER CATEGORIES OF ANTIQUES, PARTICULARLY FURNITURE. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT REASON GIVEN FOR ANTIQUE CLOCKS HOLDING AND GAINING VALUE IS THAT THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FIT AMERICA’S DECORATING LIFESTYLE, ESPECIALLY MANTLE SIZE CLOCKS AND OTHER STYLES THAT EFFICIENTLY USE SPACE, WHEREAS ANTIQUE FURNITURE AND OTHER LARGER ITEMS ARE NOT AS GOOD A MATCH FOR THE LIVING AND DECORATING LIFESTYLE OF NOW AND THE FUTURE. ONE THOUGHT IS FOR CERTAIN - A QUALITY ANTIQUE SETH THOMAS CLOCK WILL ALWAYS BE A FINE INVESTMENT!!!

THE HIGH RESOLUTION SUPERSIZE PHOTOS ARE PROVICED FOR YOU TO SEE ALL DETAILS OF THE CLOCK. THE PHOTOS REALLY DO NOT FULLY SHOW HOW NICELY THIS SETH SHOWS OFF – IT IS A BEAUTY!! THE CLOCK LOOKS EVEN BETTER WHEN VIEWED DIRECTLY THAN IN THE PHOTOS. THE ETON - 1913 IS WELL PRESERVED AND FULLY RESTORED IN EVERY WAY.

RESTORATION AND TECHNICAL DETAILS

THE EIGHT DAY FINE ROUND SETH THOMAS 48JMOVEMENT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DISASSEMBLED, INSPECTED AND CLEANED WITH ULTRASONICS. ALL WORN PIVOT BUSHINGS WERE REPLACED, AND BOTH THE TIME AND STRIKE MAINSPRINGS WERE REPLACED WITH HIGHEST GRADE MAINSPRINGS. MAINSPRINGS ARE A CRITICAL ENERGY LINK TO ASSURE EXTENDED AND RELIABLE LONG TERM PERFORMANCE.

ALL OPERATIONAL ASPECTS OF THE MOVEMENT WERE INSPECTED AND CORRECTED, IF NECESSARY, READYING THE MOVEMENT FOR YEARS AND YEARS OF SERVICE. THE MOVEMENT WAS THEN PROPERLY REASSEMBLED, LUBRICATED, TESTED AND ADJUSTED WITH BOTH ELECTRONIC AND MECHANICAL INSTRUMENTATION.

SUPERSIZE PHOTO 10 IS THE MOST IMPORTANT, FROM A MOVEMENT RESTORATION PERSPECTIVE. NOTICE, IN THE LOWER INSETS OF PICTURE 10, THE WIDE SWEEP AND ARC AMPLITUDE WIDTH OF THE PENDULUM BEAT ON THE RESTORED FINE ROUND 48J MOVEMENT – THE AMPLITUDE WIDTH IS A FULL 3 5/8 INCHES AS MEASURED FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BOB AT LEFT SWING TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOB AT RIGHT SWING. THIS FAR EXCEEDS THE MINIMUM SPEC OF 2 1/2 INCHES!!! THE ROBUST AMPLITUDE WIDTH INDICATES THE MOVEMENT IS IN THE HIGHEST STATE OF GOOD HEALTH, WITH VIRTUALLY NO FRICTION, NO DRAG, AND PLENTY OF RESERVE ENERGY FROM THE MAINSPRINGS.

AS INFORMATION, BEWARE IF A FINE ROUND 48J MOVEMENT HAS AN ANEMIC PENDULUM BEAT SWING BECAUSE IT IS A TALE-TALE INDICATOR OF POOR MOVEMENT HEALTH AND THE NEED FOR EXTENSIVE SERVICE WORK.

A FINAL PORTION OF THE SERVICE PROCESS IS ELECTRONIC AND MECHANICAL TESTING OF THE MOVEMENT FOR PENDULUM BEAT ERROR, RATE, RELIABILITY AND OTHER FUNCTIONS – I HAVE SOME RESTORATION AND TESTING ILLUSTRATIONS IN THE PHOTOS, SO PLEASE TAKE A LOOK.

NOTICE IN SUPERSIZE PHOTO 12:

THE COMPLETE SERVICE RESTORATION OF THE FINEST ROUND 48J MOVEMENT ALONE IS A $300 VALUE!!! IT MAKES SENSE TO PURCHASE AN ANTIQUE MANTLE CLOCK THAT YOU KNOW IS READY FOR YEARS OF RELIABLE SERVICE. WHEN YOU PURCHASE ONE OF MY CLOCKS YOU CAN BE ASSURED!!
