- Quantity Available: 1
Selling from my personal collection - not an auction or garage sale find. A spectacular Seth Thomas "Elect" model antique clock ca. 1910. These clocks were most commonly found on the front desks of upscale hotels lobbies at the turn of the 20th century - where accurate time was of the essence. This clock has undergone a complete and correct mechanical restoration. It has the 89L movement, the workhorse of Seth Thomas, and with proper maintenance will probably last forever.
8 day time and strike movement has recently undergone restoration with new bushings, lube and set in beat by a professional clockmaker - not some shade tree guy - with 50 years of experience. Case is solid brass on a BRONZE spelter base and is very heavy and ornate. We have polished the brass barrel case but not the bronze. THIS IS A VERY LARGE CLOCK, ONE OF THE LARGEST MANTLE CLOCKS YOU WILL SEE.
Has original barrel pendulum and most likely the original key. Keeps time accurately and dependably. This one has graced my mantle for several years and is one of 2 "Elect" models in my personal collection (try to find one) . This clock has an unusually large dial with a 7" diameter.
The brass has been carefully polished but not lacquered. The patina of the bronze base is original and 100 years old. Strikes on the 1/2 hour and hour. INVESTMENT QUALITY.Sales to the lower 48 only.Plenty of more pix and questions promptly answered.
