Extra Large (20") Postal Telegraph
Synchronous Electric Time Clock, c.1920

Extra Large (20") British Postal Telegraph Synchronous Electric Time Clock, c.1920 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From Vista CA

Here is a great piece of American history that can hang on a wall in your home or office, keep good time and be a reminder of the the storied past of the Postal Telegraph system. Click the images below to enlarge.

Physical: The large-diameter clock (20" with 15" dial) is in excellent, age-appropriate condition and retains the original paint on both the case and the dial.

Mechanical: These clocks were originally synchronous "slaves" to a master clock. However, like most, this one has been converted to a quartz movement that runs on a single AA battery and keeps great time. We had it hanging in our great room for years before it was replaced by a yet larger battery-powered self-winding clock, thus its availability now.

Comments: Wonderful vintage piece, silent-running clock. Keeps good time, looks great, needs a "good home". Priced to move...

Seth Thomas "Chatham" - Original Catalogue Drawing 1921-1922 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue)


Here is a great Seth Thomas "Chatham" model gallery clock that appeared in this configuration in the 1921-1922 catalogue at a cost of $14.00. It's a little more expensive now!

Physical: The quartered oak case, which measures 16" in diameter and 4" deep, has the original finish and is in excellent physical condition with some alligatoring (typical). The 12" diameter dial signed "Seth Thomas" has the original paint and is in excellent physical condition as well.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, spring-driven movement has recently been lubricated and is in excellent running condition. There is a hinged door on the bottom to access the original pendulum.

Comments: Great clock, great price. Call us to make it your own!
