Gallery clocks have always been popular among collectors and those just seeking a simple, but traditional clock for decorator purposes. They were generally used in banks, commercial installations and schools. We're not sure where this one spent most of its life but its condition makes it clear that it led a charmed prior life free of any abuse or harmful environment. Nice!

Physical: The Seth Thomas 16" diameter solid oak case is in excellent physical condition and has the original finish.


There is a door on the bottom to access the pendulum. The 12" diameter dial is in fabulous condition and has the original paint. Charmed life.

Mechanical: The eight-day No. 41A (workhorse) time-only movement is in excellent mechanical condition. We just had it professionally overhauled including two new bushings so it is a great runner you will be able to count on for years to come.

Seth Thomas put a dial support board behind the dial on many of its models. Often, lazy repair people did not bother to reinstall it when they finished their service work. But this clock does have the original dial support board (see photo).

Comments: Absolutely great clock that will be problem-free and reliable. Also bargain-priced! Please call us to start the process.

Seth Thomas "Garfield" - Origina Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

The Seth Thomas Garfield and its comapnion, the Lincoln have consistently been the most popular shelf clocks we've ever sold. Here is a beautiful Garfield for your consideration.

Physical:
The original finish walnut case is in excellent physical condition. It measures 15.5"w x 38"h x 6.5"d
. The 8" diameter dial is also in excellent condition with the original paint. It also has nickel weights that match the bezel and pendulum, which is rare – have not seen that preiously.

Note the damascened pendulum bob. The glass and weights are original, as well, and there is a remnant label in the bottom of the case.

Mechanical: The two-weight, eight-day movement was professionally serviced in 2019 and is in excellent running order.

In the 21 years since we started our online business, this is only the second one of this Seth Thomas model that we've ever had available to us. If we weren't still in the midst of a new front yard and exterior painting, this clock would be hanging in our home. It is a marvelous piece of art!

There were eight different versions of Seth Thomas clocks of about this same size all that used the moniker "Regulator No. 1". Two had "extra" appended to the model name. It would be fun to own one of each! This one is by far our favorite of them all. Seth Thomas followed Regulator No. 1 with the most popular of all its clocks, even today, the Regulator No. 2.

Physical: The oak "keyhole" case, which measures 15"w x 34"h x 5"d is in excellent physical condition. It was returned recently from our old-world restoration shop with restored varnish and new life breathed back in; it looks absolutely superb.


The 12" painted dial is in excellent condition with the original paint. The label, glass, weight, pendulum bob and hands are also all original to the clock. There is also an original label in the curved bottom of the clock.

Mechanical: The very popular eight-day, time-only Seth Thomas No. 77 trapezoidal movement (as used in many popular models) has recently been professionally overhauled and is in excellent mechanical condition ready for years of great service to you.

Comments: This, in our opinion, is one of the cream-of-the-crop Seth Thomas regulators. Seldom seen, highly sought. Will it grace your wall?

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here is the small version of the much sought-after E. Howard Regulator No. 58 in oak, this one measuring only 39" in overall length. This clock was made in several sizes, also with 10- and 12-inch dials. This small one is extremely difficult to find.

The E. Howard catalogue indicates the case size to be "3 feet 6 inches long", but this clock and one other of which we are aware both measure 39" in length. We had that double-checked on the day this listing was prepared.

It is not uncommon to find discrepancies between original catalogue descriptions and the actual clocks. Who knows, perhaps this was used as a salesman's sample as it is certainly a lot easier to schlep around than one of the big guys!

Physical: The beautiful oak case measures 12.5"w x 39"h x 5"d and retains the original finish and is in excellent overall condition. The 8" dial was professionally restored by the Dial House and is signed, E. Howard Boston.

The damascened pendulum on a gilded rod is original and in excellent condition. The upper glass is original; there appears to be newer retaining putty on the lower glass so it has likely been replaced sometime in the past.

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

Comments: In the nearly twenty-one years we have been operating our business, we've had several of the larger size of this model but only one of this smaller size. It's difficult to imagine the petite size without getting out a tape measure. You might want to try that, then give us a call... we know you will have space for this one!

E. Howard Regulator No. 41 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Like many of its other regulator models, E. Howard & Co. made this seldom-seen model in five different sizes ranging up to six feet in length. This one at four feet is a little more manageable in most settings. Take a close look as it's a beauty and the only one we've had in nearly twenty years in business!

Physical: The black walnut case, which measures 16"w x 48"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition and retains the original finish. Different woods react differently in how they reflect or absorb the camera flash. The lower midsection appears lighter, but if you take a look a the photos labeled "lower" (and "lower left" in particular), you will see that the wood blends with the rest of the case. Odd little fact!

The 9" diameter dial was repainted at some point in the past, long before the present owner purchased the clock. It is in excellent physical condition. The glass tablet is original and in excellent condition as is the damascened pendulum bob. There is a wonderful original label inside at the top of the door.

Mechanical: The eight-day deadbeat, maintaining-power mechanism was recently professionally cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. The sign
ed E. Howard movement is stamped with a "4" and the same numeral is cast into the original weight.

Comments: This is one of those serious collector "statement pieces". Physically it is very conservative, yet its elegance is reflective of the best of both the cabinet- and clock-making crafts. We'll be happy to assist with shipping arrangements with one of our blanket-wrap specialists. Please give us a call to initiate the process... thanks in advance.

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 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.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 9 in Oak - Antique Clocks Guy

(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

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.

Comments: Ready for a substantial wall clock? You know how to reach us!
