Seth Thomas Antique Mantel Mantle Cabinet Clock Abbey Inlaid 15 Day Movement:
SETH THOMAS ABBEY INLAID– 1921
Today I am proud to offer is this beautiful Seth Thomas Abbey Inlaid produced in the year of 1921. In the book, the only reference is the Abbey Plain and the Abbey Bracket (on shelf). This clock is not referenced as an Abbey Inlaid but the label on the bottom (not common) states it is an Abbey Inlaid. The bell metal gong has a beautiful tone that is pleasing to the ear. A “Broken Arch”, Old English cabinet with inlaid design and quarter-round columns on the left and right front side of the clock. A nice step up molding design that runs front to back along the sides of the 9 and 3. The Mahogany case has a small piece missing off the top front arch that can hardly be noticed but worth mentioning and the original finish has a nice crazing which can be seen in the pictures as well. The finish is original and has not been altered. This model is featured in several areas of the 2005 Seth Thomas books and has a 2005 value of up to $800.00.
The original 4 inch porcelain dial is in excellent condition with repair done around the winding arbors when I purchased the clock. The painted black Arabic numbers with red quarter hour numbers in the chapter ring and the arrow shaped hour and minute hands give this clock a classy look allowing the numbers or time to be read easily from a distance. The convex beveled glass has no chips but a few scratches in it. The machined clasp brass bezel has been cleaned without harsh chemicals so as not to ruin the antique brass finish. Both the front and the back doors open and close properly as they should. The back door has a brass knob instead of wood. The original bob and a proper size ST stamped 2-sided key comes with the clock.
This clock features a half-hour strike rebuilt 15-day fine round movement No. 51 that is really quiet and built to be accurate over a two week span between windings. It strikes once on the half-hour with the actual number of strikes on the top of each hour on a spiral bell metal gong. This can be seen and heard on the video player that will be provided either at the beginning or the end of the listing. Just click the white play arrow in the center of the video, raise the volume bar on the player, adjust the volume on your computer and enjoy. This clock will give years of enjoyment to you and your family and many years of enjoyment to pass on for your future generations to come. Every aspect of this clock is fully functional.
