Here We don't often have the large Seth Thomas (deep dish) gallery clocks, though we recently sold one with a 24" diameter dial in oak (most we've seen are oak). We're delighted to offer this beautiful mahogany-cased clock for your consideration. This model first appeared in the 1884 catalogue and last in the 1924 catalogue. The number stamped into the movement dates this one at 1913.

Physical: The mahogany case with original finish measures 25.5" w x 6.5" d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see.

The signed 18" dial, which has the original paint, is also in excellent physical condition and has the original hands. There is a label in very good condition on the inside back just behind the pendulum (which is also original).

Mechanical: The 30-day, double-spring Seth Thomas No. 86U mechanism has been cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The 86-series was the workhorse of the Seth Thomas spring-driven mechanisms and used in its industrial-application clocks including time-recorders that they manufactured and private-labeled for many firms including ITR (IBM), Simplex, Bundy and Cincinatti.

Comments: This is a great clock that will bring a sense of class wherever it is hung, whether in your home or office. Only needing to wind it once a month is a feature that you will quickly appreciate!

Gilbert "Star Drop" - 1895 Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue)

 

Here's a beautiful clock that we've only seen once before, the Gilbert "Star Drop". It was made in two versions, the earlier in 1881 being much plainer and less interesting than this version from Gilbert's 1895 catalogue. It originally sold for $10.50 in this configuration; it's a little more expensive 120 years later!

Physical: The walnut case measures 18" w x 32.5"h x 4" d and is in excellent condition with the original finish. The 12" paper dial is also original in excellent condition. The bezel has is stamped with "Pat Mar 21 '76". Hands and stenciled "Owl Glass" are original to the clock. Gotta love the wise old owl... kinda reminds us of a retired CPA client of ours in the Midwest – wise old dude out to roost!

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only movement has just been cleaned and professionally serviced and is in excellent running order. The feet of the movement have been rotated slightly to deal with stripped-out holes in the backboard from servicing over the last 120+ years.

Gilbert "Star Drop" ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Comments: Wonderful, unusual clock that will put a smile on the face of anyone who sees it. Would be great in a kitchen or family room. Give us a call to ensure it's your home to which it is destined to go... Hoo, Hhoo!

Kroeber Regulator No. 31 in Walnut
 

Kroeber Reg 31 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Kroeber Reg 31 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Kroeber Reg 31 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Original catalogue drawing ~ Antique CLocks Guy(Original Catalogue)

 

The Kroeber book listed below (for which The Clock Guy wrote the introduction) shows this clock on two successive pages and notes its appearance in both 1875 and 1881 catalogues with either a time-only or time-and-strike movement. The "beard" below the dial appears to be slightly different between the catalogues, this one matching one shown in the book with the 1881 catalogue date, however this clock shows the earlier pendulum style; some later ones had round pendulum bobs and some had decorative glass.

Physical: The walnut case with burled lower front panel has the original finish. It measures 11"w x 34"h x 4"d. The glass appears to be original; typical to clocks of this age, some of the putty that holds the glass has dried out and dropped off. The 5" diameter dial is in excellent original condition.

Mechanical: Kroeber did not make its own movements, instead relying on the large Connecticut clockmaking firms such as New Haven and Seth Thomas as their source. The Kroeber book shows this eight-day, time-and-bell-strike model with closeups of movements by both of those firms. This clock has a Seth Thomas movement that was just cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service.

Kroeber Reg 31 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

It is interesting to note that the movement is stamped "Plymouth Conn USA" which dates its manufacture before sometime in 1859 at which time Plymouth was renamed "Thomastown" subsequent to the death of Seth Thomas. Also interesting is that the winding holes are in the bezel below the dial and not in the middle of the dial as you find on most clocks.

Comments: This will be a (beautiful) conversation-starter where ever it is hung. Will that be in your den or bar... or perhaps in Mom's kitchen? Your choice! Give us a call to start the process.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 4 in Mahogany

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 4 in Mahogany ~ ANtique Clocks Guy

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 4 in Mahogany ~ ANtique Clocks Guy

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 4 in Mahogany ~ ANtique Clocks GuyShip From So. CA

One of the "workhorse" clocks of the Seth Thomas line was Regulator No. 4, generally used in railroads, schools, or industry, but this one has come through the whole process pretty much unscathed; must've led a very charmed life!

Physical: The mahogany case, which measures 18"w x 42"h x 6.75"d is in excellent physical condition and appears to retain the original finish. The 12" diameter dial is in excellent original condition and we believe it was repainted in the past (typical for Seth Thomas, who did not prime their dials in the factory). It has the original pulley, weight, pendulum and, we believe, glass (but glass is difficult to confirm on later clocks).

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, weight-driven, retaining-power, 72-beat No. 77D movement is the same that was used in the popular Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 that you can see in our Reference Library, but this is the model with the cut pinions, much sought after by serious collectors. The movement in this clock was just professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition - ready for many additional years of workhorse service!

Comments: Many of us like plain wood clocks without a lot of fru-fra on them. This is an elegant example of Seth Thomas simplicity of design. The last four of this model that we had in the past sold very quickly. Shouldn't this one be yours?

Much like Regulator No. 2 for Seth Thomas, the mainstay industrial regulator produced in highest quantity by E. Howard & Co. was its Regulator No. 70, which, unlike the Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2, was made in several sizes, with dials up to 24" in diameter as you can see from the year 1900 catalogue below. This model was also widely used in schools, most notably in all of the schools in New York City.

E.Howard Regulator 70 - Antique Clocks Guy

Physical: The oak case measures 15.5"w x 31"h x 5" deep. It has recently had the finish restored. The 12" dial, signed "E. Howard & Co. Boston retains the original paint and is in in excellent condition. The hands and weight are original. The weight on this style clock is large and rectangular piece that rides down flat behind the original damascened pendulum and is hidden by a "weight board" that's behind the pendulum inside the bottom section of the clock.

E. Howard Regulator No. 70 in Mahogany, c. 1900 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 6 in Walnut

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 6 in Walnut ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

One of the most popular Seth Thomas weight-driven wall clocks is Regulator No. 6. This model was so popular that it was copied and re-released in the 1970s by General Time, the company that bought the Seth Thomas assets and name (and subsequently folded).

THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION, but an original clock.

Physical: The gorgeous walnut case bears the original finish that has been thoroughly rubbed out and is in excellent physical condition; there is crazing present in the finish, the special patina of years and years. It measures 49"h x 16.5"w x 6" d. The 10" diameter dial has the original paint in excellent condition; the strong-board behind the dial is the only non-original component of this clock. This clock also has an original label that's in very good original condition. The glass appears to be original as do the finials. Note the beautiful burled walnut in the crown piece and on the base. Also note the beautiful nickel damascened pendulum bob and matching weight, beat-plate, pulley and bezel.

Mechanical: This model uses the same time-only, weight-driven movement that's in the workhorse Regulator No. 2. The original 80-beat movement features lantern pinions, Graham pallets. This one was just overhauled and is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service for you.

Comments: Don't miss this one if you've been seeking a nice, clean very original Seth Thomas regulator.

Seth Thomas "Flora" - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue

 

Here's a beautiful and much sought-after Seth Thomas "Flora" model that is one of only a few of these we've had to offer since we began our online business seventeen years ago. This was built in the period when the firm was building its finest clocks. Of solid cherry, it's in the most desirable of the woods from which this model was made and is a real beauty. Be sure to check the classic hand-carved floral design on the sides from which it derives its name.

Physical: The very interesting cherry case, which measures 12.5"w x 38"h x 7.5"d is in excellent overall condition, with original finish on the case and original glass.
The 8" diameter dial retains the original paint and is in excellent, age-appropriate condition.

An original Seth Thomas label in the bottom inside of the case is in good, age-appropriate condition. It has a very nice
damascened pendulum bob and brass weights.

Finally, there is a manufacturing date stencil on the back (reads backward) that indicates this clock was made in March, 1884.

Mechanical: The eight-day, double-weight, mellow time-and-cathedral-gong-strike, retaining-power movement was professionally overhauled in Nov 2015 and is in excellent running order – ready for years of great service for you. Here is the statement from our consignor, which includes the technician's summary:

“The movement of this clock was removed and overhauled by a 26-year certified horologist which included: Remove clock's movement from the case. Inspect the movement for signs of wear. Document all problems and the overall condition. Fully disassemble the movement. Clean individual movement parts in an Ultrasonic cleaner using a specialized clock-repair cleaning solution. Dress and diamond-polish all pivots. Perform all clock repairs and re-bushings. Individually test the gear trains. Assemble the movement, perform an oiling, and make all necessary adjustments. Run the movement for 48 hours in a testing stand while being monitored by a computerized timing device, making the necessary timing adjustments as necessary. Mount the movement back in the case and run fully assembled clock for one week.”

The movement is marked "Seth Thomas" and "Thomaston Conn" and the number 171/4. The original catalogue noted that this was a "new and superior movement."

Comments: As noted above, this model is difficult to find, especially in all original condition and freshly overhauled. If you're seeking an unusual and highly desirable Seth Thomas to add to your collection – or perhaps for just a single decorative clock – this would be a perfect choice. There are (count 'em) 48 photos for your consideration. They are not as large as we usually have but the quantity and variety should assist you in your evaluation. Please call us with any specific questions or to purchase.

Ansonia "Hanging Antique" - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here is a wonderful example of the Ansonia "Hanging Antique" in mahogany. This same general design was also made in a tallcase clock called the "Standing Antique"

Physical: The case of this c.1904 clock is in excellent condition and appears to have the original finish that may have been overcoated at some point in the past. It measures 17"w x 46.5"h x 9"d. Though the original catalogue says this clock was made in oak and mahogany, we've seen a couple of them over the years in both cherry and walnut.

The brass appliques are all original and in excellent condition. Some have been re-lacquered. The spiral weights are in excellent condition as are the side-arm finials on top. This model is often missing the embossed brass cover on the pendulum, but it is present and accounted for here! The 9.5" diameter dial with porcelain "cartouche" numerals is in excellent original condition. Lots to look at on this clock – visually stimulating.

Mechanical: The eight-day time and gong-strike movement is in excellent running order, having been recently professionally serviced.

Comments: These original clocks have become increasingly difficult to find, which must explain why the Chinese, in typical corner-cutting fashion, have been making crummy copies that they sell online. Caveat emptor and all that...

Note: Been looking for a excellent one that's pristine and not a knockoff? Now's your time... (no pun intended)!

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 1, c.1886 – Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Interestingly, Seth Thomas made five different versions of what they labeled "Regulator No. 1". This is the third of the five, circa 1886 that uses the basic Regulator No. 2 case, with the addition of pair of finials on the bottom similar to those on Regulator No. 3. Confused yet? (Keep reading!)

Physical: The rosewood and walnut veneer case, which measures approximately 15.5"w x 34"h x 5" d is in excellent physical condition. The finish has been rubbed out and waxed. The glass is original as is the beautiful damascened pendulum and the weight, which have been re-nickled along with the bezel by the highest-end specialty plating company in So CA; all are in excellent physical condition. The dial was professionally repainted in 1977 by the famous Martha Smallwood of The Dial House in Georgia.

Our consignor suggests that perhaps this clock was assembled on a Monday as the original label is on the backboard instead of in the usual place in the inside base of the clock. We've seen this configuration previously but only on Regulator No. 3 and not often.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, deadbeat, maintaining-power, movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition – ready for years of great service.

Comments: Beautiful clock that's a great piece of what we call the "Regulator 2" story. Perhaps over time you'll be fortunate to own each of these No. 1 models. Certainly, this one's a great start. Give us a call to start the purchase process.

E.N. Welch Regulator No. 5 in Walnut ~ Antique Clocks Guy

E.N. Welch Regulator No. 5 in Walnut ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

E.N. Welch Regulator No. 5 ~ Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy  

The popular Regulator No. 5 from the esteemed E.N. Welch Manufacturing Company is not one we see very often. In fact, this is only the third one we've ever had available to us for our clients. Because of the complexity in its physical design, we'd guess that it was very expensive at the time of manufacture, so not too many were initially sold, thus the relative scarcity today. This model features two weights that come down the sides of the case, and a beautiful Welch beat plate behind the pendulum.

Physical: The walnut case, featuring the original finish measures 19"w x 52"high x 5"d. As you can see in the photos, it is in excellent physical condition. The finials are all original. Welch originally used a felt-coated wallpaper on many of their clocks, most often seen on the Patti shelf-clock models. Over time this deteriorates or peels or otherwise gets ratty. The previous owner removed the material and painted the bare wood, so the backboard has had the correct felt material replaced recently. The 10" diameter dial shows only minor wear. Difficult to tell if it was refinished in the past as it is in such excellent physical condition.

The pendulum stick has the original/correct gilding and the bob, weights and beat plate are original and in excellent condition. The glass appears to be original as well.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only movement was recently professionally overhauled and re-strung and is in excellent running order. There were two different versions of this particular movement. This clock has the earlier version that was used from 1873 to 1879.

Comments: Here is your opportunity to own one of the most desirable of the Welch clocks. Seize the moment!

(Original Catalogue Drawing)

 

Here is one of the more gracious Seth Thomas Regulators that we see only occasionally. This case, which was manufactured in the most popular oak as well as walnut, cherry and "old oak" was used for the configuration you see to the left and for a double-dial perpetual calendar called "Office Calendar No. 12".

Physical:The oak case measures 15.75"w x 48"h x 7"d and is in excellent physical condition with the original finish. Fortunately, it also has the original wavy glass in the door. The 10" dial retains its original paint and is in excellent condition

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, deadbeat, retaining-power movement was overhauled in 2014 and is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service.

Comments: This is a wonderful clock that will make a great addition to your collection or a wonderful single clock for your home or office. We made a wonderful deal on this one that's reflected in the price. It can be yours with a simple call to start the process.

Howard Regulator No. 20 in Marble - Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

24” Dial ~ Weight-Driven
Howard Regulator No. 20, c. 1874

Here is a nice big E.Howard clock for your consideration. Have a magnificent mantle that needs a large format clock above? This would be a great choice. We don't see this model floating around out there. And other Howard marble clocks are generally much more pricey; this one is a bargain.

Physical: The widest/tallest part of the clock is 28". The marble is in excellent condition. The dial signature has been "strengthened". Note the great damascened pendulum bob.

Mechanical: The signed eight-day, time-only, single weight movement is in excellent overhauled condition, ready for years of service. Most of these old Howards have had the weight fall at some point and go right through the bottom of the case; not so with this one.

Note the rod that goes up from the movement: it goes to a rate adjustment knob on the top of the case that is not visible from the front. Also, note the lever on the bottom that folds out of view, but which can be folded down to (cleverly) restart the pendulum without having to open the front of the case... very cool.
