- Item Not Available
Seth Thomas is well known for their “Adamantine” mantel clocks, which were made starting in 1882. Adamantine is a celluloid veneer, bonded to the wood case. Adamantine veneer was made in black and white, and in colored patterns such as wood grain, onyx and marble. It is an attractive, and extremely durable, finish, and the various wood-grain designs offered could fool an expert.
Adamantine veneer was developed by the Celluloid Manufacturing Company of New York City, and was covered by U.S. Patent number 232,037, dated September 7, 1880. Seth Thomas Clock Company purchased the right to use the Adamantine veneer in 1881.
This clock was made in 1907, and I bought it from the elderly son of the original owner about 12 years ago. It has been running perfectly and chiming properly ever since.
Dimensions are: 16” wide by 12” high by 7” deep. The finish is a warm cherry, and is in excellent condition. No damage, and no excuses. This is a very nice clock.
