Seth Thomas made two similar versions of this particular perpetual calendar clock. The file photo below shows the earlier model (1892 catalogue) on the right; the later model with the frame above the rings was in the 1896 catalogue. There are some other differences in the base of the two models. Click the photo below to enlarge and compare.

catalogue drawing)

Physical: The beautiful walnut with burl later model case measures 28.5"w x 36"h x 6" deep and has the original finish. It was recently professionally rubbed out and polished and is in excellent physical condition. The 10" diameter dials were restored by the famous dial-painter, Martha Smallwood, at The Dial House in GA. There is also a nice original instruction label on the back of the door. The weights and hands are original. There are no apologies on this clock - it's a wonderful piece.

Mechanical: The two-weight time and cathedral gong-strike clock movement (strikes on the hour) and the R.T. Andrews-patent calendar movement were recently professionally overhauled at which time the roller covers were replaced on the calendar (typical). Both of the movements are in excellent mechanical running condition, ready for years of great service for you.

We noted the large "fly" on the clock movement and asked our technician about it. Here's his response: "It's kind of cool. I have seen external governors on a few different model of Seth clocks. Because the clock has the heavy eight-day weights, they needed the extra fly to slow the strike down. Quiet clevor (sic). I like it!" He's not the best spellor (!), but an extraordinarily knowledgeable technician! We learn something new every day in the clawk business...

Comments: If you are a serious calendar clock or Seth Thomas collector, then you know what this clock is. If you don't, well, now's a great time to get acquainted. Exceptional price on this one, too.

Seth Thomas Office Calendar No 5 - Original Catalogue Drawing

Original Catalogue Drawing

We've only had a couple of this model in the past. Most remain securely locked in major collections, not even remotely available. As you look, consider that the photos don't accentuate the fact that this is a large clock, 50" in length. This model was featured in the Seth Thomas catalogues from 1879-1893.

Also, be sure to look at the unusual viewing window in the bottom through which you can see the nickel pendulum bob. Seth Thomas used burled wood judiciously on its higher-end clocks. This is a great example of their woodworking skill and phenomenal attention to detail throughout the case.

Physical: This Office Calendar No. 5 is in excellent physical condition. It measures 24"w x 50"h x 8"d. The finish was recently restored, having recent professionally applied additional coats of shellac, just like in the factory, hand-rubbed between coats. It is beautiful.

The 14" diameter dials have the original paint that was touched up by Kathi Edwards at the famous Dial House in GA. Both are in excellent physical condition.

Interestingly, the calendar dial is also painted on the back and there are a bunch of signatures. The collector from whom our consignor originally purchased the clock claimed that the clock came from one of the major Hollywood studios and that the signatures have some significance. Not apparent to us, but an interesting tidbit of supposition!

Seth Thomas Office Calendar No.5 in Walnut ~ Antique Clocks Guy

The roller papers, hands and weight are original; movements are original to the case. Again, it's a beautiful specimen, just waiting for you.

Mechanical: The signed eight-day, time-only, single-weight clock movement and the 31-day R.T. Andrews-patent calendar movement are both original to the clock and in excellent running order. Both were recently professionally overhauled.

Comments: This is a model that is not often available. It is so popular that (beware) the Chinese export knockoffs. This clock is the real McCoy. Is it the one for which you've been patiently waiting for such a long time?

This is a c.1888 Seth Thomas calendar model that we've not had available to us in the past and which, previously, we've not seen. Its graceful lines and wonderful colors are extremely attractive and will draw attention wherever it is placed in a room.

Physical: The polished walnut and burled case measures 15.5"w x 25"h x 5"d and is in excellent physical condition and original finish. The 8" diameter dials are in excellent condition and appear to have the original paint with a touchup to the signature on the clock dial. There is an original label on the back of the door between the glasses and another behind the calendar movement on the backboard.

Mechanical: The eight-day cup bell-strike movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order. The calendar mechanism, designed by R.T. Andrews is also in excellent running order.

Comments: This is a great clock that will be an attention-getter in your home or office. A phone call will suffice to start the purchase process...

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 9 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue drawing)

 

According to Wikipedia, "Victorian (era) design is widely viewed as having indulged in a grand excess of ornament." One need only drive down a street with old Victorian homes to make this observation for oneself. Certainly, clockmaking firms were no exception to this rule in their design of many Victorian era clocks. The Parlor Calendar No. 9, c. 1886, is perhaps the most "out there" Seth Thomas design. In all the years we have been dealing in clocks, this is only the second one of this model that we've ever physically seen. And this perpetual calendar clock is in wonderful original condition.

Physical:
The walnut case, which measures 17"w x 29.5"h x 7" has the original finish and has just been professionally poli
shed and waxed. The two outer rings on the crown are perfectly done replacements by a museum-quality restorer in Los Angeles.

There is a small older veneer re-glue (approximately 1/2" square) that is on the middle band on the right side. You literally have to be looking for it to notice. The dials have the original paint. There was some chipping that was retouched by Kathy Seiwert of the famous "Dial House" in Georgia. There is a directions label on the back side of the door in excellent condition and a calendar service instruction label behind the calendar mechanism.

Mechanical: The eight-day spring-driven time and cathedral-gong clock movement is original to the case and in excellent running order. The cathedral gong is a nice touch as it has a very deep, mellow sound, not "twangy" as with many shelf clocks. It was recently cleaned and fully overhauled. Here's the list we received from our technician of the work that was done to the clock movement: lever pivot straightened; other pivots polished as needed; eight bushings replaced; manufacture and install new arbor spring bushings in the front plate; polish plates, fit new suspension spring. The calendar mechanism, designed by R. T. Andrews, is original to the case and was cleaned and adjusted and set for leap year. It, too, is in excellent running order.

Comments: This is an important clock to any calendar collector. It's in excellent physical and mechanical condition and just needs a call from you to make it your own.

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 5 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue)

 

Here is an opportunity to own a very original Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar clock at a very affordable price. Usually, we don't list the smaller clocks like this because it is very difficult to find them in acceptable and original physical condition; this one is a wonderful exception.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 12.5" w x 20"h x 5.5"d has the original finish and is in exceptional physical condition. The 8" diameter dials both have age-appropriate wear and are completely original with original paint. The hands and glass are original as well. There is a mostly-there directions label in side as well as the typical calendar label behind the mechanism.

Mechanical: The eight-day, spring-wound, time and cup-bell-strike movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition. The perpetual calendar mechanism is in excellent running order as well. The calendar roller covers are original as is the hand.

Comments: Extraordinarily clean little clock just waiting for you to decide it's time to pick up the phone and make it your own.

Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 10 Early ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

This is a great Seth Thomas model that we don't see very often. Housed in the very popular Seth Thomas Regulator No. 6 case, this particular calendar model was made in two different configurations, this being the earlier of the two. This is the nicest one of this model that we've ever seen. It had been in one family for generations prior to becoming available to us.

Physical: The beautiful walnut case measures 16"w x 39"h x 6" d and retains the original finish. The 10" original dials have the original paint with only very minor flaking. The roller papers on the calendar mechanism are original. The weight, which runs down the inside out of view is original. The clock also has the classic damascened Seth Thomas pendulum bob and original winding crank. The finials are correct and original.

There are two labels inside, one with general instructions, the other warning against improper lubrication of the calendar movement. Both are in "as new" condition... wow!

Mechanical: The clock and calendar movements were professionally overhauled in 2013 and are both in excellent running order.
The overhaul included new bushings in the clock movement and new weight cable.

Comments: We've only had four or five of these in the fifteen years we've been in business. They aren't often available, so here's your opportunity to own an exceptional example of a real Seth Thomas classic. Give us a call to start the process!

Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 10 (Later Version) Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(orig catalogue drawing)

 

There were two different versions of the Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 10, both made in the basic Regulator No. 6 case that was also used for their double-time clock. This beautiful clock is the later of the two; the earlier version had fretwork between the dials and the pendulum was raised and located behind that fretwork. Serious Seth Thomas collectors frequently seek to have both models hanging side-by-side.

Physical: The walnut case, which has the original finish and is in excellent physical condition, measures 16"w x 49"h x 6"d. The 10" diameter dials have the original paint and are in excellent, age-appropriate condition; the calendar rollers are also original. The damascened pendulum bob is original and in excellent condition as well.

Mechanical: The clock and perpetual calendar mechanisms are original to the clock. Both were recently professionally overhauled and in excellent running order.

Comments:
This is a fabulous clock that will end up in the home of a serious Seth Thomas collector. Will that be yours? Christmas is coming you know... !

Seth Thomas Ofc. Calendar No 12 in Oak, c.1890 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here's a seldom-seen R.T. Andrews patent Seth Thomas perpetual calendar clock. The patent date of February 15, 1876 is shown on the calendar dial. This same case with a single clock dial was used for the Seth Regulator No. 9 and made in walnut, cherry, the most popular oak and "old oak". We have a matching Regulator No. 9 available in our American wall clocks section – perhaps you should consider a "bulk" purchase!

Physical: The oak case was recently professionally overcoated and rubbed out as the original finish was extremely thin from 100+ years of cleaning. It is in excellent physical condition and measures 15.75"w x 48"h x 7"d. The 10" dials were professionally restored at some point in the past. Seth Thomas did not prime its dials, so it is very common to find clocks with peeling dial paint. SOmetimes, it is past the point of touchup. In this case, the dials were very professionally re-done and look great; we'd be pleased to have this one in our home! The glass is original as well, and there is an original label in the back of the case behind the calendar movement.

Mechanical: The eight-day weight-driven clock movement (and the calendar mechanism) was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service for you.

Comments: This is a classic design Seth Thomas case with a perpetual calendar, just waiting to be there to remind you of your next appointment, whether it be in your den or your office. So the question is, what clock is next on your schedule? Call us to find out!
