Seth Thomas #2 Regulator Wall Clock Produced Between 1922 And 1929. No Reserve For Sale
Seth Thomas #2 Regulator wall clock produced between 1922
This could be called “legendary” as it is a genuine #2
Regulator as used by Schools,
Factories, Railroads and Offices just about
everywhere back in pendulum clock heydays,
this particular one spent a few
years in a federal office building…aside from all that,
TLC will be needed to
bring the “legend part” back to life an-n-n-n-nd that will be
found only in
your workshop and with your hands.

the extreme back, the main lower part of the body is
(per clockguy’s pdf i.d. guide): It has the variation
on the bottom wood trim that puts
it in those production years from 1922 to
1929. The beat scale brass plaque has
on each end for mounting (no hole in the middle as on the newer
style). The lock is
intact, screws are
all there as is the latch; but there is no key. All the original brass
hinges are in very good shape. All the glass is intact though I can’t say
for sure that
it’s vintage; there are ‘some waves and imperfections’ in both
pieces, so maybe it is.
The face is
obviously in not so good condition.
The overall condition of this clock’s cabinetry is really

or broken. The main thing wrong with it
is the faux green finish.
There is one
spot on the lower left of the sidewall that is a long sort of scratch
completely reveals the original Oak grain and the honey colored finish on
There is a bigger spot of that
finish on the inside of the back wall.

pendulum door shows
more of this original Oak as well as the complicated assembly

There’s nothing on the clock’s back to indicate a signature,
initials or any ‘stamped
number code’….even with a super low angled light
source nothing reveals itself…nor
inside where the mechanism used to be. The other details of construction, the
side of the pendulum door, the brass face bezel trim ring, the lock details,
the pendulum and the pendulum beat scale plaque may all help in determining the
exact ‘born on’ date of this clock. The
pendulum black painted oval wood stem and
bob are in fairly decent shape; but
obviously the brass needs some spit and polish.
The stem is not split or cracked. There is some slight oxidation on the steel weight
of the bob and some oxidation on the actual front side of the brass disc.
