Rare Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No.5 Variant Antique Clock:
Here we have a wonderful all original Seth ThomasParlor Calendar #5 variant.
I have been collecting clocks for 20 years and have only seen two of the #5 variants where the entire door opens and is closed with a standard Seth Thomas lock. Probably 90% or more of the #5's were the standard model where only the bezels open and clock viaone of the wooden turnings. This model is very difficult to find and the last one I saw sold for over $1,000.
This clock is a market fresh barn find. It is all original and exactly as I found it. The case, finish, dials and their paint, dial screws, hands, movements, interior door label, "Do Not Oil" calendar label on the backboard, etc. are all original. The upper and lower movement function properly but as always, I would recommend a good cleaning if you wish to run regularly.
As shown in the lower calendar movement photo, there are three extra dial mounting holes. I guarantee that the dial is original and began life with this clock. The upper two are in the correct location but were never used. They appear to be factory pilot holes and again, have no signs of ever being used. The lower one is due to someone's Uncle Buck not paying attention when screwing the dial back on. Again, I guarantee the dial is original.
Any questions, please ask.
