CHIME NO. 97 – 1928
Offered is this beautiful Seth Thomas Chime No. 97 produced in the year of 1928. The original finish Mahogany case is the most stunning that I have seen in a long time as the pictures will show with slight spider web lines (crazing). All the best features are on this model. Step up molding in the bottom front and sides of the clock with step down moldings at the 3 and 9. An open scroll like outline that starts at the 3 and 9 and stops at each end. Concaved wood around the dial giving a dish like appearance. A few minor character mark in the case that does not distract from her beauty which can all be seen in the pictures. No scratches or chips are on the convex glass and the bezel door and back door opens and closes properly. A nice original 5-inch silvered dial with very minor wear and raised bronzed Arabic numbers with fancy bronze serpentine hour and minute hands. The best sounding Mayland chime rods are in this model which you can see and hear each quarter hour followed by the full Westminster chime in the video provided. The Westminster 124 movement has been completely rebuilt for many years of trouble free service. The original pendulum bob and a proper size ST stamped two sided key comes with the clock. Every aspect of this clock is fully functional and in excellent condition.
