Seth Thomas Antique Mantel Mantle Clock Tambour 6 1926 Excellent Condition For Sale
TAMBOUR 6 – 1926
Today I have for offer is this beautiful Seth Thomas Tambour 6 produced in the year of 1926. Five years the later after the first Tambour 6 that came out in 1921, this model was made and inch shorter, sharper lines and a smaller movement. Carved accents with solid and ribbon mahogany woods make this clock very desirable. When you hear the timbre and decay on its bell metal gong counting the hours and half-hour, this clock will warm the room with its beauty and sound. This model has a sweeping base with a molded front edge that starts at the 3 and 9 and ends at the left and right side giving an open scroll look that would go with any décor in any room. The finish is 100% original that presents very faint fine lines (crazing) look to it. The Mahogany case has very few to no character marks on it as the pictures will show. All the best features are on this model. This clock has a beautiful 5 inch silvered dial that I would consider near mint for its age with black recessed Arabic numbers that can be seen from a distance and signature Seth Thomas diamond hour and minute hands.
This clock features a rebuilt 8-day solid back movement No. 120 that strikes once on the half-hour and actual strikes of the hour on a bell metal gong. This can be seen and heard on the video player that will be provided. Just click on the white play arrow in the middle of the video, adjust the volume and enjoy. No scratches or chips are on the convex beveled glass and the original finish machined clasp brass bezel along with the back door opens and closes properly as they should. The original bob that is brass on one side lead on the other and the original Seth Thomas 2-sided key comes with the clock. Every aspect of this clock is fully functional and will give years of enjoyment to you and many of your generations to come.
