A MOST NOTED AND SOUGHT AFTER SETH CABINET CLOCK IS THE “PARMA” BECAUSE OF ITS INSPIRED DESIGN, RICH MARQUETRIE AND INLAY WORK, AND THE HIGHEST GRADE COMPONENTS USED. FOR EXAMPLE, THE FINEST ROUND COUNT WHEEL MOVEMENT, SERIAL NUMBERED, WITH HARDENED PIVOTS, CUT PINIONS AND THICK POLISHED BACK PLATE IS IN THE PARMA.

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

THE PARMA - 1913 IS LISTED IN NOTED AUTHORITY TRAN DUY LY’S “SETH THOMAS CLOCKS AND MOVEMENTS” V2 3D EDITION PAGE 735.

DESCRIPTION AND FEATURES

THIS IS THE 1913 CATALOG VERSION OF THE PARMA, FACTORY EQUIPPED WITH A PREMIUM AND FLAWLESS 5 ½ INCH HEAT FIRED PORCELAIN DIAL WITH BLACK ARABIC NUMERALS, ACCOMPANIED BY THE SIGNATURE SETH THOMAS CUT BLUED STEEL FULL SPADE HANDS. THIS PARTICULAR PARMA IS FULLY AND METICULOUSLY RESTORED AND ALL ORIGINAL – JUST COMPLETED AND READY TO BE PLACED IN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE!!

THE PARMA’S DULL RUBBED RIBBON MAHOGANY AGED PATINA FINISH DISPLAYS IMMENSE CHARACTER. THE FINISH WAS RETAINED AND PRESERVED, AND WILL BE AN OUTSTANDING FIND FOR THE FORTUNATE FUTURE OWNER, AS THE PARMA CAN BE AN ADDITION TO ONE’S COLLECTION FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES, AND/OR FOR DISPLAY IN A FEATURED AREA OF THE HOME.

THE PARMA 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 PARMA – 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 PARMA CAN BE ADMIRED BY ITSELF OR AS PART OF A DECORATIVE GROUPING.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS CLOCK!!! – I KNOW I DO – I ADMIT I LOVE THEM ALL BUT HAVE NO MORE DISPLAY ROOM!!!

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.

THE BEAUTIFULLY AGED SHELLAC-OVER- MAHOGANY PATINA FINISH ON THE HIGH GRADE RIBBON MAHOGANY CABINET HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY PRESERVED, CONDITIONED AND RESTORED, RETAINING THE DESIREABLE DULL-RUBBED SATIN LUSTRE AND PATINA, AS WELL AS THE MUCH SOUGHT AFTER DARK HONEY RIBBON MAHOGANY COLORATION THAT IS ORIGINAL AND CORRECT FOR THE PARMA – THE APPEARANCE ACCENTS THIS CLOCK’S CHARACTER, BOTH AS AN ANTIQUE AND AS A DECORATIVE ACCESSORY WHEN DISPLAYED.

THE HALF HOUR IS SOUNDED ON A CATHEDRAL BELL SPIRAL GONG – THE SOUND IS MELLOW AND RESONANT, WITH A LOVELY LINGERING DECAY OF THE NOTE; THE HOUR COUNT FOLLOWS, WITH EACH HOUR ANNOUNCED AS A STRIKE ON THE CATHEDRAL BELL GONG. A CLOSE IN VIEW OF THE CATHEDRAL SPIRAL GONG IS SHOWN IN SUPERSIZE PHOTO 11.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO HEAR THE PARMA 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 PARMA - 1913 IS WELL PRESERVED AND FULLY RESTORED IN EVERY WAY. I TAKE GREAT CARE TO INSURE THAT EACH DISTINCTIVE CLOCK I OFFER IS SUPERB IN ALL RESPECTS!!!

RESTORATION AND TECHNICAL DETAILS

THE EIGHT DAY FINE ROUND SETH THOMAS MOVEMENT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DISASSEMBLED, INSPECTED AND CLEANED WITH ULTRASONICS. ALL WORN PIVOT BUSHINGS WERE REPLACED, AND BOTH THE TIME AND STRIKE MAINSPRINGS WERE SERVICED, INSPECTED AND TESTED TO ASSURE RELIABILITY. 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.

AS INFORMATION, BEWARE IF A FINE ROUND COUNT WHEEL 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 #48R 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!!

THIS IS A MEDIUM SIZE DORIC CABINET MANTEL CLOCK – AN IDEAL SIZE - SUITABLE FOR MANTLE, TABLE, SHELF OR WALL BRACKET DISPLAY - PERFECT FOR A SPECIAL GIFT, FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE, OR AS AN ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION. MEASUREMENTS ARE 12 ¼” H X 9 ½” W X 5 ½” D.
