6075  Chelsea Navy Bakelite clock

This black Bakelite case is in very good shape with good color and without damages. It opens with a hinge at the 12 o’clock position. The original silvered dial is very legible and has just a bit of discoloration. The hands are original but the tail portion of the center sweep seconds has broken off. However, I have it and am including it.

This is an eight day timepiece. The rear plate is signed “Chelsea Clock Co. Boston 534626” and that serial number dates to about 1948. It is now fitted with a pair of contacts with wires leading to two posts on the side of the clock at the 4:30 position so it was set up to trip or signal something. It has been running well for me

7” in diameter.     $175.

6076   Seth Thomas deck or engine room clock

Originally, this clock had a nickel finish on the case which has now been polished down to the brass. I do not see any dents or splits. It has the original glass and the door opens with a hinge at the three o’clock position.

The hands are the originals and the silvered dial shows some wear but it is quite legible. There is a partial label on the back.

These clocks are designed to run about two days per winding and this one has been running well for me for a few weeks.

6 ½” in diameter.    SOLD

6077   Seth Thomas ship’s bell clock

This clock is in “as found” condition but priced accordingly. The nickel plated case shows some wear on the bazel, there is no glass and the bell is a replacement. I was not able to find a nut of the correct size to hold that bell in place. On the back is a date stamp of 1891.

This clock strikes ship’s bell time on the hour and half hour on the bell. It is running but a previous owner tried bending the hammers to get them to strike correctly and he did not get them right. You will have to straighten them out. This is a one day clock and it is running though it has not been properly serviced for quite some time. 

11" tall.      SOLD

6078   Seth Thomas “Corsair” ship’s bell clock

Manufactured by Talley Industries of Norcross, GA, this clock is dated 1987. The Seth Thomas clock company was moved there in 1982. It has a solid mahogany base with a brass platform. The mahogany does is show some scratches perhaps caused by the key or bezel when the clock was being wound.

The brass housing is in good condition without any dents or scratches and the bezel is the screw on style. The signed silvered dial is in near perfect condition and it has the original hands. There is a complete label under the base and it comes with the original instruction booklet and key.

This is an eight day clock that strikes ship’s bell time on the hour and half hour. It looks like someone has over oiled the movement but it is running nonetheless. The movement was made in Germany.

7 “ tall, 11” wide    $125

6079   Seth Thomas “Corsair” ship’s bell clock

This clock was made in Thomaston Connecticut before 1982 when they moved to Georgia. The quality of this clock is better than the later ones. The base is solid mahogany and it is in good condition without any dents or scratches. The clock freely sits in that base and can be removed if you wish to mount it differently.

The brass housing is in good condition without any dents or scratches and has a bezel that is the screw on style. The silvered dial is in excellent condition and the hands are the originals

This is an eight day clock that strikes the hour and half hour on a gong in ship’s bell time. It seems to be in good running order. The movement was made in Germany.

7” tall.    $155
