Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine 8 Day Mantle Clock 1899 Serviced & Running
Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine 8 Day Mantle Clock 1899 Serviced & Running. Here is a nice condition “Adamantine” finish 8 day time and strike mantle clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. In Thomaston, Connecticut in the year 1899. It has the green marble-look Adamantine top and trim against the solid black Adamantine body. All of the original feet and ornaments remain and are in great shape. And, although their finish is worn, it is original. The solid brass bezel and dial assembly is a nice one. The paper dial has been replaced over the solid brass dial pan. This clock features the original 1890’s Seth Thomas movement, which has been cleaned and is in good running condition, keeping time and striking properly, counting the hour, i. 1 gong at 1:00, 2 gongs at 2:00, etc. And announcing the half hour with a single gong. It is a quality movement that, if properly maintained, should last many lifetimes. The “Adamantine” finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800’s, is in good shape for its age. There are a few minor dents scattered around, which is fairly common for this type of finish. It is a thin laminate over soft wood and so shrinks, cracks and dents fairly easily with just normal use over time. However, although this clock obviously aged being from the late 1890’s, the Adamantine is still in pretty remarkable condition. The measurements are 16 ¾” wide x 10 ½” high x 7 deep. This clock comes complete with a key and the original 1890’s pendulum and is ready to place up on the mantle and enjoy. This helps insure that the new owner will have a satifying experience. Be very sure to save all packaging material if there is a problem. All sales are final, (with the exception noted below). It is nearly impossible to find one in “mint” condition. If a clock has damage from misuse, it will be noted. If a clock is running properly when it arrives… Thats about the best we can do.
