Seth Thomas 15-Day “World” in Cherry - Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here's a beautiful Seth Thomas "World" model, c.1900, that's in wonderful condition. This model was often used in commercial applications and some school houses.

Physical: The cherry case, which measures 16"w x 32"h x
4"d, has the original finish, including beautiful original gilding around the pendulum door.

The glasses are original. The 12" diameter dial is in very good original, (age-appropriate) condition with some minor flaking. The pendulum is original. There is an original Seth Thomas label on the backboard inside behind the pendulum.

Mechanical: The original (workhorse) fifteen-day time-only movement is in excellent running condition having just been professionally cleaned and serviced..

Comments: Very original, super clean clock; a classic "long-drop" school-house regulator but one you don't have to wind every week! And cherry is the most desired wood in Seth Thomas clocks. Priced right. So give us a call to make it your own!

Chelsea Clock Company is synonymous with the highest quality in factory clockmaking. Here is a fine example for your consideration. "Base and Ball Feet" was the original name for a style that has persisted through the years in the Chelsea catalogues. In 1917 this model was renamed the "Commodore" and subsequently the "Constitution", which is still manufactured today (but with a quartz movement). This ship-strike model is a fine example of their early production. The 6" dial is signed "J.E. Caldwell & Co.", the Philadelphia retailer who first sold this clock.

Physical: The brass case, which is in excellent physical condition, measures 8.5"w x 9"h x 3"d. Correct Chelsea key is included.

Mechanical:
The eight-day ship-strike movement has just been serviced and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: Wonderful Chelsea at a great price just serviced and ready for years of great service for you. Call us to start the process.

Original Catalogue Drawing

 

One of the "workhorse" clocks of the Seth Thomas line was Regulator No. 4, generally used in railroads, schools, or industry, but this one has come through the whole process pretty much unscathed; must've led a very charmed life!

Physical: The oak case, which measures 18"w x 42"h x 6.75"d is in excellent physical condition and retains the original finish with some alligatoring (typical). The 12" diameter dial is in excellent condition with original paint. It has the original pulley, weight, pendulum and glass.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, weight-driven, retaining-power, 72-beat No. 77D movement is the same that was used in the popular Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 that you can see in our Reference Library, but this is the model with the cut pinions, much sought after by serious collectors.

The movement in this clock was just professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition - ready for many additional years of workhorse service!


Comments: Many of us like plain wood clocks without a lot of fru-fra on them. This is an elegant example of Seth Thomas simplicity of design. The last four of this model that we had in the past sold very quickly. Shouldn't this one be yours?

Gilbert Amphion on Matching Original Shelf = Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is an opportunity to own a fairly rare combination of original clock and original matching shelf, both in pristine original condition. Take a close look at the photos below as you may not again see such a clock and shelf combination available anywhere in the marketplace. This clock was purchased 20 years ago at an antique store in Lexington NE.

Physical: The walnut clock on the shelf measures 35"h x 21"w x 7.75"d. The clock itself measures 25"h x 17"w x 5"d. Both are in excellent physical condition with the original finish. The 6" paper dial is also original to the clock.

Note the carved crest with fleur-de-lis and shield center and scrolled side crests with spherical embellishments on top. It has etched mirrors on either side of the fancy etched door with arched top and mirror below. The clock and shelf also feature original glasses, mirrors, and fancy cut-glass pendulum.

Mechanical: The 8-day time-and-gong-strike movement has just been cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent mechanical condition. It strikes once on the half hour and subsequently strikes the hours.
