Seth Thomas Clock 89i Mv Antique Vintage Duel Chime Collectable Early 1900's:
For your consideration, a Seth Thomas antique clock from about 1915. I have no information on the actual date of production. This clock has brass feet, brass bezel as well as the hinges on the door. All brass has been polished and cleaned. The door on the bezel opens and closes fine the back door is not factory perfect, but opens and closes fine. The case has been redone and is beautiful. The wood grain is like I have not seen before. The top looks more like a modern butcher block with different types of wood glued together. The grain is magnificent on this particular piece. The case will show its age in some spots, nothinghideous, just wear. The movement is a brass 89I that has two hammers and a double chime gong that is long and loud, can be adjusted with a screwdriver as to the volume. The clock chimes on the quarter hour, one double chime on the quarter, two chimes on the half, and three on the forty five, then one chime on the hour to represent the time. This clock purchased, it is now a fully functional clock that keeps pretty good time. It is running slightly fast, about 3- 4 minutes per day, will adjust to get it close to perfect. The Seth Thomas Clock Co. made fine products since 1813, I am not a clock expert, but they are made of brass, and brass does not wear, it gets neglected. This clock has run for nearly 100 years, I'm sure it will run for another century if cleaned and maintained every five years or so. The clock is oiled and cleaned. Take it out of the box and display it. Very solid piece. Will sale as a used item and "as is" for a short time, then I will put it in my collection. Thank you and please ask any questions. Update: Clock is running about 1 minute fast per day. Will adjust as time goes on.Note: I am not a clock expert. I do not have high tech equipment, and do not have a clock company. This is a hobby that focuses on putting old clocks that are ready for trash back into circulation because I think they are a fine piece of American History. ST Co. was the first and best in early American History. I believe it is worth the effort to keep these items alive so other generations can experience the craft that was Seth Thomas.
