(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here is a swinging-arm clock that is one of the larger of this genre made by the Ansonia Clock Co., circa 1906.

Physical: The cast spelter statue with cherub has the original finish and measures approximately 9" in diameter at the base by a whopping 30"h. The catalogue indicates that both the statue and swinging arm are 25.5" in length. The plated ball (blue tint) and pendulum assembly are original and complete. The suspension block was rebuilt by the leading Ansonia swing-arm clock expert in the U.S.

Mechanical: The eight-day, spring-driven, time-only pendulum movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order.

Comments: This a much sought-after, seldom found model. It is in glorious condition, awaiting its place of honor in your home or office.

Photos Comment: It can be challenging to photograph a clock like this and not have the flash blow out the color in the swing-arm balls. We suspect the photo of the right side of the clock (just above) may best match the actual color of the balls.

Seth Thomas Regulator No 2 - Original Catalogue Drawing 1904 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Catalogue Drawing - 1904
(St. Louis Clock and
Silverware Co.)

 

Here is a fine example of the much 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 five years or so, and especially with a 3-PIECE BOW TIE! It is in excellent physical and mechanical condition as you will see in the photos below.

Physical: The c. 1888 walnut case measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 5"d. It, and the dial were professionally and beautifully refurbished at some point in the past. The case and 12" diameter are in excellent physical condition. There is also a remnant label in the inside bottom of the case.

The weight, pendulum, bezel, and extremely desirable gilded glass are all original to this clock.

Mechanical: The rectangular movement with dial "strong board" is original to the clock. It was was recently professionally cleaned and serviced and is ready for years of great service. It is in excellent running order.

Comments: Serious collectors pursue Seth Thomas clocks in cherry and walnut and Regulators No. 2 with three-piece bow ties (section below dial). This is an awesome clock and foundational to any serious collection. This particular clock is in such great shape with no excuses. Give us a call to start the process.
