In the 22+ years we've been in business this is the first time we've ever seen this very special and extremely difficult-to-find E.N.Welch model with its porcelain dial, exposed center wheels and 30-day movement. We're sure you'll find it enchanting... especially the winding schedule!

Physical: The beautiful Rosewood case measures 16"w x 24"h x 6"d. It bears the original finish and is in excellent physical condition having recently been cleaned and polished. The glass and pendulum are also original. The signed 7" diameter porcelain dial is in excellent original condition. There is also a label on the back.

Mechanical: The 30-day spring-driven brass movement with nickeled plates has just been professionally serviced (cleaned/lubricated) and is ready for years of great service for you. The movement is signed and bears a patent date of Aug 30, 1870.

Comments: This is a great clock. Stunning case that will attract attention wherever it goes. But don't forget it just because you only have to wind it once a month!

Seth Thomas Lobby 18 Inch - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue drawing)

 

The large Seth Thomas Lobby clocks aren't often available - especially in cherry. We think people just love them and can't bear to part with such a large-dialed clock. This one is a great example of the species.

Physical: The large cherry case measures 25"w x 38"h x 7"d. It was professionally refinished at some point in the past and is in excellent condition. The 18" dial has the original paint... and the glass is original. The top finials may be replacements - sometimes it is difficult to tell.

Mechanical: The 15-day No. 24 time-only movement was recently professionally serviced, is all original, including hands and pendulum, in excellent running order, and ready for years of great service.

Comments: Been looking for a large, stately wall regulator... here it is, just waiting for your call...

Seth Thomas “Lincoln” in Walnut

 

The most famous Seth Thomas pair of shelf clocks is the Lincoln/Garfield pair and each of them we've had over the past 22 years has not lasted long on our site. This one should be no exception...

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 17"w x 28"h x 5.75"d retains the original finish, and is in excellent physical condition. The dial has the original paint that has been touched up. This clock also has a beautiful nickel damascened pendulum bob and a label in the inside bottom of the case.

Mechanical: The eight-day, weight-driven time-and-strike movement is in excellent running order. It was recently cleaned, lubricated and re-strung.

Comments: Often, the weights on these shelf models have been replaced by new weights available at the major clock parts house. This clock has original weights.

Great clock in a super clean all-original case. Just right for you? Call us...

E. Howard & Co. Regulator No. 2, circa 1874

The pendulum stick has original gilding; the bob has concentric engraved circles; both original to the clock.

E. Howard Regulator No. 2 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

In our 22+ years in business, this is only the second of this model we have ever offered on our site. It seems that the next-to-largest sizes of some Howard regulators are harder to find than their "bigger brothers"! Just wish we had available wall space to keep this one!

Both E.Howard & Co and its predecessor firm, Howard & Davis, made a series of five banjo-styled regulators, and numbered them Regulators No. 1-5. Here are catalogue pages: (Howard & Davis - 1858) and (E.Howard & Co. - 1874).

The original Howard catalogue said, they "...are well calculated for office or school use, and may be fully relied upon for accurate time-keeping". Ya think? (:~)

Physical: The rosewood factory faux-grained cherry case with turned bezel appears to have the original finish, though we'd guess overcoated at some point in the past. The case is in excellent overall condition. It measures 17.75"w x 43"h x 4.75"d.

The first detailed thing we examine on this genre of clocks is the bottom. At some point in time in the past, most of these regulators have had a gut weight cable break, sending the heavy weight literally through the bottom of the case. So we look immediately to see what kind of repairs have been done along the way. The bottom of this clock is in good shape, nicely repaired at some unknown time in the past. The gut cable has been replaced with braided braided cloth.

E. Howard Regulator No. 2 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

The painted steel Roman numeral dial is original to the clock and in excellent condition as are the moon hands. The glass in the head is bubbly. We don't see that in the throat and lower tablets. Looking at the backs of both tablets it is difficult to tell if they are original, which is very typical with large regulators.

Mechanical: The signed eight-day, single-weight, time-only movement is original to the clock, has been recently serviced by one of the top guys on the West Coast, and is in excellent running order. Our technician commented about two things regarding this clock: first, that it is the nicest example of the large Howard banjos he has seen in his 30+ years in the business; and second, that the pendulum swing is wider than he's ever seen on one of these clocks, an indication of the health of the movement (see video). The iron weight has the correct number (2) on it. The clock also includes a winding crank.

Comments: Larger E. Howard banjos are difficult to find, especially this model. Some people make it a career collecting goal to own one of each of the five regulator sizes. Here's an opportunity to take a step in that direction. Do ya, do ya, do ya... do ya wanna dance?

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 8 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Parlor calendars were a mainstay of the Seth Thomas line of clocks. This is only the fourth Parlor Calendar No. 8 we've ever had available to us in the 22-plus years we have been in business. As you will discover in the myriad of photos below, this is avery straight clock with the vibrant color contrast between the walnut and the maple woods that's in wonderful overall condition. Take a close look for yourself...

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 8 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Physical: The walnut case measures 18"w x 27.5"h x 8.5"d and is in excellent condition with ORIGINAL FINISH. The 8" clock and calendar dials were restored by the famous Martha Smallwood of The Dial House in Georgia back in the 1970s and are in excellent condition

Mechanical: The eight-day gong-strike movement and the calendar movement were just professionally serviced and are in excellent running order. The clock strikes a very heavy, resonant cathedral gong on the hour. This same model was also made with a less expensive and far less desirable cup bell strike as you can see in this example. The roller papers have been replaced (typical for a 133 year-old clock) There are two nice labels, one in the back behind the calendar movement, and another on the inside of the door.

Comments: This is splendid example of this model and the deal we struck with our consignor has it priced well below either of the prior three we've sold. Lotta clock for the money. It will look great in your "parlor" or perhaps on the credenza behind your desk – your choice. Give us a call to start the process.

(St. Louis Clock and
Silverware Co.)

 

Here is a fine example of the highly sought-after Regulator No. 2 that was widely used in commercial applications. This Seth Thomas model is in the hard-to-find walnut that we see only once or twice every few years or so. Overall, the clock is in excellent physical and mechanical condition as you will see in the extensive photos below.

Physical: The walnut case measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 5"d and has the original finish. The 12" diameter dial bears the original paint and there is a label in excellent original condition in the inside bottom of the case.

This clock also has original hands, weight bob and bezel. Lower glass is original; hard to tell about the upper

Mechanical: The widely-used No. 61 movement is original to the clock, was recently professionally overhauled and is ready for years of great service. It is in excellent running order.

We've previously had only one of this model from E.N. Welch in the 22 years that we've been in business. This one is all original. Original finish, original dial, original parts, original glass, original...

The case design is of the "Eastlake" period. The Eastlake furniture style, as envisioned by its namesake Charles Lock Eastlake, came about as a response to his aversion to the over-the-top Rococo Revival and Renaissance Revival styles popular during the Victorian era. Eastlake was a trendsetting British architect, author, and lecturer.

As a proponent for "careful craftsmanship," he called for the manufacture of "simple sturdy furniture." His book, Hints on Household Taste, published in England in 1868 and the United States in 1872, expounded on these ideas which went hand in hand with the Arts & Crafts Movement.

Although Eastlake furniture is technically considered Victorian, being popular from 1870 to 1890, it breaks away from the excessive high-relief carving, classical elements, and numerous curves of other styles produced during this time frame. The first glimpses of modernism can be seen in Eastlake's reformed style.

Physical: The black walnut case, which retains its original finish is in excellent physical condition. It measures 18" w x 60" h x 5" d. The 10" diameter dial has its original paint as well as some age-appropriate chipping. The pendulum stick, bob and cast brass beat scale are all original to the clock and in excellent condition.

Mechanical: The
30-day spring-driven (duplex) movement has just been lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. It has been running and keeping time in a closet here for a couple of months so we have first-hand knowledge of its condition.


Comments: This is a great clock. One of the things that is most attractive to us is its shallow 5" depth, allowing it to be hung in a hallway or other place where it intrudes minimally into the room. One of our most treasured clocks is a large Seth Thomas regulator that also has a shallow-depth case and that is hung in a passage space in our great room.

So, take a look at the photos and consider where you might hang this beautiful clock in your home or office. Then, give us a call to start the process!
