Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock Rare Model
Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock Rare Model. This is a complete and running “Adamantine” finish 8 day time and strike mantle clock, made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. It has the simulated dark walnut Adamantine finish that was very popular during the early 1900’s. This clock features the original and scarce to find dual chime signed Seth Thomas # 89 movement, which 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 super quality movement that, if properly maintained, should last indefinitely. Seth Thomas didn’t make many dual chime clocks with diagonal chime rods, so for the Seth Thomas collector, a rather nice clock to own. The original silvered dial is nicely aged, giving it a genuine antique appearance. The “Adamantine” finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800’s, is in good shape for its age. It is a thin celluloid type laminate over soft wood, and so shrinks, cracks and dents fairly easily with just normal use over time. This collectible clock comes complete with a key and pendulum and is ready to place up on the mantle and enjoy. The measurements are 16 ¼” wide x 9 ¾” high x 6 deep. This helps ensure that the new owner will have a satisfying 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, that is about the best we can do.
