Every time we become convinced we've seen it all we are surprised once again! Here's a circa 1910 Seth Thomas example we've not seen in our nearly twenty-three years online, and we've seen most everything they made... we think!

Physical: The mahogany with brass inlay case in the style of Charles Boulle is in excellent condition with the original finish. It measures 10"w x 14"h x 4.5"d. The 4.5" diameter porcelain dial is original to the case and is in excellent physical condition as well.

Mechanical: The ST-signed eight-day time-and-strike movement has just been professionally serviced by one of the top clock technicians on the west coast and is ready for years of great service for you.

Comments:
Looking for a charming shelf clock reminiscent of clocks of the French genre? This one's
delightful and will be admired by all who see it. And it doesn't take the savings passbook to purchase! (:~)

Considered by many to be the most desirable Seth Thomas model, Regulator No. 10 appeared in the 1884-1904 Seth Thomas catalogs. This is a magnificent example of this very seldom-seen model. Why seldom? Because collectors’ families nearly always keep the clock in the family from generation to generation, just like your kids will when it becomes theirs!

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 20"w x 72"h x 10" d features richly grained burled veneers on all of the raised panels. The finish appears to be original. The 14” silvered heavy brass dial is in excellent original condition and trimmed with a nickeled bezel. The Seth Thomas name and trademark are also engraved on the dial. The counterweighted hands, including sweep seconds, are original to the clock as are the thumbprint mercurial pendulum jar, nickeled decorative pulley, and the nickeled weight. There is a barely visible (and age-appropriate) vertical hairline in the upper left corner of the lower door.


Mechanical: The trapezoidal-plate eight-day, time-only movement is among the finest that Seth Thomas ever produced and highly sought by knowledgeable collectors, whether in this model or Regulator 15 (see the one we have available – perhaps you should buy both!). The plates are engraved with the July 3, 1886 date of manufacture and serial number 136.

Other Seth Thomas movements are not similarly date and s/n-marked. The maintaining power movement features finely cut steel pinions, Graham deadbeat escapement and jeweled pallets. The verge features avery handy beat adjustment. Seth Thomas' finest!

Comments: It is very unusual to find this model available for sale. If there were ever a single clock of clocks that we could own – even getting rid of all the rest of our beauties – this would be the one. We suspect this may be true for many American clock collectors. So, if you fall into that category, please get in touch with us.

We are pleased to offer for your consideration a pristine Chelsea Ship's Bell clock that was made in 1918 (s/n 125209) and retailed by Charles C. Hutchinson in Boston.

As a young man Charles C. Hutchinson served as an apprentice to F.W. Lincoln, Jr., a nautical instrument maker, math instructor, and great-grandson of Paul Revere, and later, mayor of Boston. F.W. Lincoln and Company was located at 62 then 136 Commercial St in Boston.

In 1858 Hutchinson became a partner with Lincoln and the business moved to 126 Commercial St. By 1883 Hutchinson bought out the business and renamed it Chas. C. Hutchinson Nautical Instruments. The business imported and sold nautical and surveying instruments, charts, marine glasses, telescopes and flags. It was located at 154 State Street from 1893 until 1932, when it moved to 175 State Street opposite the Custom House.

How great is it to have such a history to go with your eminent purchase!

Physical: The red bronze case, which measures 10"w x 9.75"h x 5"d has been polished and lacquered and is in excellent physical condition. The serial number stamped on the back of the case matches the serial number that is stamped into the back of the movement. The 6" silvered dial is in excellent physical condition; hands are original, too, and the clock will be shipped with a correct Chelsea key.

Mechanical: The eight-day ship's bell movement has just been professionally serviced by a jeweler and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is one of the most beautiful ship's clocks we've ever offered. We look forward to your call to make purchase arrangements.

Very Rare Waterbury 30-Day “Kendall”

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!

Ansonia Swinging-Arm “Fortuna”

Ship From So. CA


(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.

Questions? Contact us by phone at , or e-mail.

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.
