Here is a clock we've not had available but twice in the past 23 years that we've been in business. There were two different sizes of this model that were made, this being the smaller. The only one of the larger model we've ever seen is this one that was made for the Self-Winding Clock Co. Big, impressive (EXTRAORDINARILY expensive clock)!

Physical: The solid oak case measures 34"h x 15"w x 5"d and is in excellent physical condition, retaining the original finish. The glasses are original and there is slight discoloration in the red of the lower glass. The 12" diameter dial retains the original paint.

Mechanical: The
eight-day time-only, deadbeat, maintaining power movement was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent mechanical condition. A rear mounting screw to the movement was apparently lost at some point in the past and four side-mounting tabs were added to hold the movement in place as is frequent with other models. A new rear mounting screw was added.

Comments: This is an awesome and popular Howard model that's quite difficult to find most of the time. One other nice thing is that, unlike most E.Howard clocks, at 34"h this will fit into most wall spaces without overpowering the surrounding. Great clock!

P.S. We've discovered that there is a small piece missing on the right side of the base of the clock that has now gone to be remediated by our old-world restoration shop. You can still proceed with purchase, if you're willing to wait for delivery. A deposit will hold the clock for you pending your approval of the restored base.

NOTE ABOUT THE PHOTOS: These photos were taken at different times by two different people (including us) and at different times of the day. The orangish-colored wall behind causes light to refract and make getting a perfect color match very difficult... just sayin'.

Very Rare Waterbury 30-Day “Kendall”
in Walnut, circa 1896

American clockmakers, in general, made very few 30-day clocks; this one by the Waterbury Clock Co. is an exception to that rule and quite rare. We've never seen this model in our nearly 23 years in business, let alone in a 30-day configuration.

Physical: The
walnut case, surmounted by a beautiful and detailed crown and flanked by fluted columns, measures 22"w (crown) x 52"h x 9"d is in excellent physical condition. It bears the original finish and original finials. Likewise, the signed 10' dial is in excellent, age-appropriate condition and bears the original paint.

Mechanical: The 30-day, spring-driven movement is was recently cleaned and adjusted and is in excellent mechanical condition, ready for years of enjoyment.

Comments: It's always fun to find a clock of classical American style that others don't also own. And, so often clocks of similar size were made primarily in oak, so finding a beauty that's walnut is a secondary bonus. Give us a call to make it your own!

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 1
circa 1886

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 1  circa 1886 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

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.

Original Catalogue Drawing - 30-Day Seth Thomas 18-Inch "Arcade" Gallery Clock ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

This is an interesting Seth Thomas long-running model from their 1914 catalogue which says, "Fitted with a thirty-day time, large double spring movement with Graham dead-beat escapement. Mahogany finish and old oak. Back of case is an oblong box arrangement. No 1, 4 x 10, 18-inch dial. Over all, 24 inches. List $21.50. No. 2, 4 x 14 x 24, 24-inch dial. Overall 30 inches. List $35.00. No. 3, 4 x 15 x 32, 30-inch dial. Over all, 36 inches. List, $60. No. 4, 4 x 18 x 39, 36-inch dial. Over all 42 inches., List $80." So it's clear they made multiple sizes of this clock and it costs a little more now than then!

Physical: The "Mahogany Finish" case measures 24" in diameter and features an 18" dial that the famous dial-painter Martha Smallwood restored in 1985. The case has the original finish. Presently, it has been cleaned and polished to a nice lustre. The top-hinged bezel provides access to the dial and there is a door in the bottom to provide access to the original pendulum.

Mechanical: The heavy-duty (battle ready!), 30-day, time-only #86T movement for which Seth Thomas was well known, was recently professionally cleaned and adjusted and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is a gorgeous clock. Wouldn't it look great on the wall of your family or game room? Lotta clock for the money...

E. Howard Regulator No. 41 in Black Walnut

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 signed 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. 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.
