Seth Thomas Sons & Co. #8011 Bronze Finish Antique Clock-1872-15 Day Movement:
SETH THOMAS SONS & CO.1872
A beautiful find! An early made Seth Thomas Sons Model 8011 statue mantel clock. This clock comes offered directly to you from a local home owner who obviously had a taste for fine antique clocks, as there were several to choose from as he downsized his estate (please view my other sales to see).
Listed and pictured in Tran Duy Ly's book, SETH THOMAS CLOCKS & MOVEMENTS, 3RD EDITION, VOLUME 2, page 1045, with a 2005 price guide value of $900.
The official model is #8011, but I feel this clock would be better suited if it were named "ANGEL WITH CHILD"....for obvious reasons.
A very clean and well cared for clock by the looks of it! The movement is the original 15 day round Time & Strike model which strikes hours and half hours on the nickle bell, reminiscent of fine french clocks of the era. Highly regarded by collectors, Seth Thomas and his sons offered some of the finest clocks of the time, and their clocks are one of the few to this day that consistently bring top dollar at sale. As you view the photos, it should be apparent why! The signed porcelain dial is in very nice condition, with minor surface chips around the winding holes. Many times these porcelain dials are severely cracked or fractured leading to an unsightly appearance. It is so nice to find this one in the good condition that you see! Original heavy beveled glass is in fine condition as well. Complete with ST logo'd double ended winding key used for twice monthly winding, as well as adjustment of the Fast/Slow arbor at the 12 o'clock position. Please view the pics and email if any questions.
Overall dimensions are approx.16 1/2" tallby 7 1/2" deep and 14" wide.
Complete shipping costs within the continental U.S.Awill be a flat rate of $39.
