Antique Seth Thomas Shasta Adamantine Mantle Clock Serviced C. 1905
Antique Seth Thomas “Shasta” Adamantine Mantle Clock Serviced C. This great looking clock was made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. USA right around 1905. This model is the crown jewel of early 1900’s mantle clocks and a favorite of antique clock collectors everywhere. It is a larger than usual model that boasts a serpentine top, celluloid drum sides, full round celluloid columns, larger than usual paw feet, and a signed Seth Thomas #89 movement that is one of the most dependable 8 day time and strike clock movements ever made. It has been serviced and is in good running and gonging order. The “Adamantine” finish, which is a patented laminate finish from the late 1800’s, is in good shape for its age. You usually will notice a little shrinkage at the corners and edges and some cracking here and there, as well as plenty of minor dings, dents, fading and scuffs, which is the nature of the Adamantine finish. It is a thin laminate over soft wood, and so shrinks, cracks and dents fairly easily with just normal use over time. This one has a few minor dents on top from being moved around over the years, but all in all the appearance is exceptional. The case measures 17 ½” wide x 11 ½” high x 7 deep. It has a beautiful brass bezel and dial assembly. The paper dial is original and so does show signs of wear and age. This clock runs well, keeps time and gongs properly. It counts each hour on a mellow sounding antique cathedral gong, i. 1 gong at 1:00, 2 gongs at 2:00, etc. And announces each half hour with a single brass bell chime. Complete with a key and pendulum, it is ready to set up on your 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.
