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!

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, like this one, c.1884. The 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 (small dings 6, 10, 11) 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.
