Ship From So. CA

We are pleased to present a clock that is both spectacular and extremely unusual, a Seth Thomas Regulator 16 Standing. Take a close look because it is highly unlikely you'll ever see another one!

Here's what our consignor said to us in the note when the clock was offered to us:

"I had known about this clock for 30 years and was always intrigued by it. Reportedly, it spent the majority of its life in an L. A. Jewelry store whose name was never offered up. I am not convinced it was a special order from Seth Thomas but prefer to believe that someone commissioned a master carpenter to fashion an appropriate base so that the clock would fit into a furnishing scheme. The burl panel in the base is an eye-catcher. In viewing the rear it is evident that nothing is new and that the carpenter used the same construction methods as Seth Thomas. I believe the finish to be a cleaned original as there is no evidence of overcoat. The dial is original and the hardware has impeccable nickel trim. Movement overhauled. I am unsure about the door glass."

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 28"w x 80"h x 11"d is in excellent physical condition as you can see in the photos. The finish appears to be original, too. The 12" diameter dial with sweep seconds hand is in excellent condition and has the original paint. The bezel, weight, beat scale are all nickel-plated and in excellent condition as is the 6" diameter damascened nickel pendulum bob.

Mechanical: The precision eight-day retaining power time-only movement with sweep seconds hand was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent mechanical condition ready for years of great service to you.

Comments: Here is an opportunity to own a one-of-a kind absolutely stunning floor-standing clock from our favorite manufacturer. Because of its 80" height it will easily fit into any room. The only decision you have to make is into which room will you place it! Give us a call to start the process.

Seth Thomas REgulator No. 16 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Original Catalogue Drawing

Perhaps the most sought after of the big Seth Thomas wall regulators is Regulator No. 19 and its immediate predecessor, Regulator 16. This is the earlier of the two models. They had essentially the same case, except Reg 16 at 9" in depth is not quite as deep of a case as Reg. 19. Both clocks were used in major railroad stations and in high-end commercial establishments as well as by jewelers across the country because of their very precise timekeeping.

Physical: The stunning walnut case measures 13"w x 75"h x 9"d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see in the detailed photos below. The exterior finish was professionally restored in 2019 by one of the top restoration guys on the West Coast.

The 12" dial, hands, nickel bezel, weight, pulley and beat scale are all original. In addition, there is a good condition label in the bottom inside and it has a wonderful damascened pendulum.

Mechanical: The eight-day, retaining-power, graham pallets movement beats seconds with a large sweep seconds hand. It was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order, ready for years of precise timekeeping for you.

Comments: Fabulous clock, great condition, fair price. Call us!

Here is an unusual and beautiful Ansonia Royal Bonn porcelain clock that we have not seen previously and that, amazingly, is not listed in the Tran Duy Ly book about the Ansonia Clock Co. of New York, though there are numerous photos of this model found in a Google images search.

Physical: The beautiful porcelain case, which measures 10"w x 15"h x 5"d is in excellent physical condition without chips, cracks, or repairs. The 5" diameter porcelain dial with exposed escapement is also in excellent physical condition.

Mechanical: The eight-day signed Ansonia movement was recently serviced (cleaned/lubricated) and is in excellent mechanical condition ready for years of great service.
