(original catalogue)

 

Here's another clock that we've never had available to us to offer to you in our 23 years online, the Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 6, this one in Walnut, circa 1882-1887.

Physical: The walnut case (also offered in oak and old oak starting in 1888) measures 27"h x 14.5"w x 5.75"d and is in very good physical condition. It was refinished at some point in the past. The case also has the original glass top and bottom. Both dials are in excellent condition.

The 8" clock dial was restored by our favorite dial-painter, Lesley Fernandez; the calendar dial is original. The clock dial has the ST logo + U.S.A. + Pat Dec 28, 1875 (which matches the stamp on the movement). The calendar says Patent Date Feb 15, 18.. (last two digits faded and could perhaps be seen with a black light).

There is a calendar directions label on the inside of the door.

Mechanical: The time-and strike clock movement was professionally cleaned and oiled recently and is in excellent mechanical condition.It strikes the hours on a coiled gong; after 1888 this model struck a cup bell instead of the gong. The R.T. Andrews-design perpetual calendar mechanism was professionally overhauled and is in excellent operating condition.

Comments: Such an interesting looking clock and in such great shape physically and mechanically. A great addition to a calendar collection or as a general decor piece. Call us to start the process and get it enroute to you via The UPS Store.

We know, you're probably thinking the same thing we did when we first heard the name of this model, "Hecla" is a well-known Seth Thomas model, this can't be correct. Right... and wrong! This very Victorian and extremely difficult-to-find charming little clock is the Hecla model from Waterbury!

Physical: The walnut case which
bears
the original finish measures 23.5"h x 15"w x 4"d and is in excellent condition. It has a great label on the back also in excellent condition, and an unmolested winged finial on top (wings are often missing or repaired on winged finials in general).

The 5" dial was professionally repainted and is in excellent physical condition.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-heavy-gong-strike movement was professionally overhauled a couple of years ago and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is an awesome little clock worthy of even the finest clock collections. Perhaps it would make a great graduation gift for that new college grad in the familiy... or for Y.O.U.!

Chelsea “Vanderbilt” Ships Bell Desk Clock ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Here's an extraordinary little Chelsea ship's wheel desk clock with a ship's bell movement for your consideration. This model was introduced by Chelsea in 1937The "Vanderbilt" name has a connotation of wealth attached to it. Can't you just imagine this little clock sitting perhaps on the corner of a small writing desk in the Commodore's mansion... or yours?

Physical: The yellow brass case, which measures 7" high with a 3.75" silvered dial, has recently been polished and re-lacquered to preserve its sheen. It is in excellent overall physical condition.

Mechanical: The eight-day ship's bell movement was recently overhauled by a professional watchmaker. It is in excellent mechanical condition and the ship's bell feature works correctly.

Comments: Very clean little clock; ready for years of great service for you. Call or e-mail to start the process!

Here's a hefty mantle clock of which we've only had one before. It is the Seth Thomas "Hotel" model, a real beauty. Be sure to look at the detailed closeup photos of the side of this clock. We've seen some that are missing the side panels and have some fru-fru stuck in there instead. This one's the real McCoy.

Physical: The Walnut case measures 14" w x 18"h x 7"d and is in excellent physical condition, having recently been restored by a leading restorer in "Lost" Angeles! The painted dial is original to the clock and bears the original paint. Most Seth Thomas clocks of this vintage have long ago had the paint start to crackle and/or peel, so enjoy this completely original dial!

Mechanical: The heavy spring-driven, eight-day time and gong-strike movement was recently professionally serviced and is ready for years of great service for you. The original Seth Thomas catalogue described this particular mechanism as a "Superior Movement"!

Comments: Most American mantle clocks we see don't do much for us, but this clock is one of those rare exceptions. From the detail on the front door, typical to Seth Thomas of that era, to the detailed carving on the side, this clock is a real visual delight. Perhaps it belong on the credenza behind your desk in the office?

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 will be remediated by our old-world restoration shop in the near future. 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'.
