Restored Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Shelf Clock ©1913 Original 89 Movement
This Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle clock dates to 1913 and was called Dana. The original #89 movement has been completely serviced and is in working condition. Movement taken apart, ultrasonically cleaned, repairs made as needed, new springs installed, lubricated and tested. Clock gongs once on the half hour and gongs the hour on the hour. This is an 8-day strike clock and it has to be wound weekly. Includes key and pendulum. 8 1/2 wide x 11 hi. Cabinet is original and is not in great shape. There are some dents in the wood on the left top. Bottom edges and some top edges are damaged. I hate to see cabinets get thrown in the trash because of some damage. An Adamantine clock only applies to those Seth Thomas clocks that were laminated with celluloid veneer. Some were wood grain and others were mostly black. These finishes were advertised as lasting longer due to the durable Adamantine Finish. The dial has been cleaned and paper has been replaced with a copy of the exact dial that existed before. I make my own dials to match the original dial in size and font. Label on rear is a copy of an original Seth Thomas Adamantine label. Thanks for your interest. These clocks are over 100 years old if not older. Many have been altered or damaged over the years. I make repairs as needed. I will replace a dial only if it needs it. I do clean the clock cases and take them apart. Some have minor damage from the years and others need some major repairs. I use the original finish if possible and try to match the original if necessary. Many of these clocks have small dents or flaws from when they were made or have been damaged at some time over the years. Some dial glass may have minor scratches or chips. Some brass may be discolored. Please look closely at photos. Movements have been disassembled, cleaned, repairs made, reassembled, and tested. I want you to be happy with your clock. I will be happy to take it back or help you find the problem. The item “Restored Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Shelf Clock ©1913 Original 89 Movement” is in sale since Friday, August 28, 2020.
