8031   Rare, early Seth Thomas miniature column clock

This rare clock is in nearly untouched condition. Note that the label states that this clock was made in Plymouth Hollow, Connecticut, not Thomaston, so it dates before 1865. That label is in good condition, quite legible and it is the one showing a team of horses pulling a stagecoach.

The case is probably mahogany or rosewood veneers but it is hard to tell because the original finish is quite dark. The painted dial is in excellent condition and has colorful floral corners. It retains the original reverse painted lower glass which has some minor flaking and the upper glass is original. It retains the original hands, pendulum and a nice early key.

The only real flaw to the clock is that it has four or five veneer chips on the top and bottom side edges. I tried to show these in the photos and each one is about one square inch.

This is an eight day clock with a signed lyre shaped movement. It has been running well for me for several months.

19 inches tall.       SOLD



8032   Seth Thomas, Thomaston, Conn. column and cornice clock

What makes this clock special is that the case is done in rosewood veneers and the overall condition is very original. The finish is original and if it were cleaned a bit the rosewood would show even more. The columns have their original tortoise shell style grain painting with gold capitals. That gold does show some wear and discoloration.

The dial was repainted many years ago, It has a near perfect label and what appears to be the original print in the lower glass. The hands have been replaced while the weights and pendulum are the originals.

This is a 30 hour clock with a signed brass movement and hourly strike on a gong. It is running but the strike needs adjusting to start and lock up properly.

25 inches tall.          $125.



8033   Rare Sperry and Shaw four column shelf clock.

 This is a clock worthy of note because it is quite original and is an early style with four freestanding columns. An unusual feature is that the case has the original grain painting done to resemble quarter-sawn oak. There is very little paint loss and very few case blemishes.

The painted wood dial is in excellent condition as is the colorful reverse painted glass below. Though the hands look unusual I believe they are the originals. The minute hand appears short because it was broken at the center then reattached. The label is about 80% complete.

This is the case style that has those thin wafer shaped weights that run in the narrow channels at the sides. The weights were missing when I found the clock. I have included an old original pair but one is quite tight in the weight channel.

This is a weight driven 30 hour clock with hourly strike on a gong. It is running and striking properly though I have not had it running very long.

26 inches tall.       SOLD



8034    “Bradley Manf’g Co. Southington, Ct.”

Thus reads the label of this early style clock produced in the 1850s. You seldom see clocks with this maker’s label. The case is rosewood and the veneer is virtually perfect with hardly any flaws at all. It has been nicely refinished and is very clean. The reverse painted tablet is so well done that I am not sure if it is the original or an extremely well done replacement on the original glass which has the same amount of wave as the upper glass.

The repainted zinc dial is quite well done and it has a raised chapter ring but note that the winding arbor holes have been enlarged slightly for some reason. The early style hands are the originals as is the pendulum and it has a very good label.

This clock has an unsigned eight day movement with hourly strike on a gong. It is presently running and striking properly and it appears to have been recently cleaned and serviced.

15 inches tall.        SOLD



8036   Seth Thomas “Prospect No. 2” mantle clock.

The case is mahogany with brass feet and satinwood inlay on  the front. The case is quite clean and it has the original finish. There are no case problems, chips etc.

It has a very nice celluloid dial to resemble porcelain and it is very clean without any faults or yellowing. It comes with the original hands and pendulum.

This is an 8 day clock with hourly strike on a gong and half hour strike on a nickel bell. The movement will need cleaning to be put in running order.

13 inches tall.         $85.




8037   Herschede mantle clock.

I think it is safe to assume that the blue paint is not original and that there is a mahogany case under that paint. If you wish to invest the time to remove that paint you will have a high quality clock at quite a low price. I do not see any case chips or problems.

The bezel is heavy cast brass and it has a thick convex beveled glass. The hands and pendulum are the originals. The silvered dial is in good condition and it has the Herschede logo at the bottom.

This clock has a high quality movement which is signed and serial numbered 1825. It is 8 day with hour and half hour strike on a cathedral gong. It has not been cleaned in many years and that will need to be done to put it in running order.

10 ½ inches tall.        SOLD



6024   New Haven balloon clock.

This has always remained a popular case style and this one is in good, clean condition. The case is solid mahogany which has been very nicely refinished. I do not see any case damage or problems at all.

The signed dial is porcelain with a floral and musical decoration. Notice that there are two hairlines visible at the right side. Sometimes soaking the dial in a cleaner will  reduce those lines.

The pendulum, key and hour hand are the originals while the minute hand is a replacement. I do have the original minute hand which has been broken but it is complete and could be soldered back together.

This is an eight-day clock with hour and half hour strike on a gong. It had been running for me but not for a full week.

13” tall.     $110.



6032   E. Ingraham & Co. cottage clock.

This clock has a refinished solid walnut case which is in good condition without any problems but for the missing door latch. Both glasses are original and I do not see any evidence that the lower glass ever had any decoration or reverse painting. The dial paper has been replaced and it is just a bit discolored as you can see.

The hands and pendulum are the originals and there is a good label on the interior of backboard.

This is a one day clock that is a bit unusual in that it also strikes the hours. Normally these little cottage clocks are time only. The movement is signed and has not been cleaned for quite some time though it is running and striking properly.

13” tall.    $45.



2322   Gilbert cottage clock.

This clock has a rosewood case with the original finish which would look much better with a bit of cleaning. There are several small veneer chips at the edges.

The painted dial is in excellent condition plus it has the original reverse painted glass and a very good label.

The hands, pendulum and key are the originals. This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a coil gong. It came from a collection were it had not been run for many years so it is overdue for a cleaning.

13 inches tall.    $85



2323   Seth Thomas cottage clock.

The rosewood case has the original finish which is very clean and in almost perfect condition. The decoration on the glass has largely worn away.

The dial has been recently repainted and it has a label which is stained but still legible. It retains the original pendulum and "ST" hands.

This model has the dependable, large, signed eight day lyre movement with Geneva stops. I do not see anything amiss with the movement except for the fact that it has not been cleaned in many years. There is an hourly strike on a coiled gong.

14 ½ inches tall.  $95




4085   Seth Thomas mantle clock.

This clock has a rosewood case with a darkened original finish and a simple case cleaning would make it look much better. There is one veneer chip at the door knob and another on the upper left corner of the door.

It has a good signed dial with the original paint and an excellent label. The hands, pendulum, key and reverse decorated glass are the originals.

This is an 8 day clock with hourly strike on a coil gong and it has that good quality movement with Geneva stops. It is running but is due for a cleaning.

14 ½” tall.     $90
