Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 8 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 8 in Burled Walnut

We are delighted to have this beautiful Seth Thomas clock for your consideration. Because of the expense of the elaborate case, not a lot of this model were initially made and there are literally only a handful of these magnificent clocks still in existence, all held in major collections. According to research of Seth Thomas catalogues at the NAWCC library, the Office Calendar No. 8 was manufactured only between 1880-1888. This one moved from NY in the 1980s to a major collection and has just been made available to us.

Physical: The walnut/burl case, which measures 24.5"w x 66"h x 9"d has a fine patinated finish that appears to have been restored well before its 1980s move. It is in excellent physical condition with beautiful color. All the wood is original as is the glass. The nickel bezels were quite worn and recently restored. The damascened nickel pendulum bob is original. It appears that the weight has not fallen in the past and damaged the case (typical for an original gut cord to break).

The 14" diameter dials are in excellent physical condition. They were recently touched up by our expert dial-painter. The left calendar roller has an indentation on "Tuesday" that might be remediated by a capable metalsmith, but we'd probably just leave it alone if it were ours. Roller papers on the calendar are original.
The cabinet lock and key are present, original, and in working order.

There is a cupola on top of the case that is unique to this particular rare Seth Thomas model. Note how it is turned even on the inside!

Mechanical: Both the weight-driven eight-day clock and perpetual calendar movements have been overhauled and are in excellent running order.

Comments: We have only seen three of this model before, one of which we restored and sold several years ago; we feel fortunate to have found this beautiful calendar clock and convinced the collector to make it available to you. Thanks in advance for your interest.

Interestingly, this model, that we've not had available to us in the past, matches the photo in Miller (p.51) and not that in Tran (p.254). Apparently there were two different styles of cabinet for the "index". Not so unusual in the U.S. clock market, but it is unusual that Tran doesn't have either a catalogue or original photo of this configuration.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 15"w x 33.5"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition, with ORIGINAL FINSH that has just been thoroughly cleaned and rubbed out. Our consignor said he used Spruce It Up (a cleaner/polish) to "remove a century of grunge and reveal a wonderful original finish."

The glass and gold leaf are original as are the 7" papered dials that are in good, age-appropriate condition. The clock dial is unsigned; the calendar dial has patent dates (also on tip of dial bezel) as well as "Manufactured for Lynch Brothers". We have been unsuccessful in learning who the Lynch Brothers were – perhaps someone reading this listing can fill us in on the details. The example in Tran also has the Lynch labeling and we have found others with the same nomenclature, but no explanation!

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-strike movement has just been cleaned and serviced and is in excellent running order. As is typical with Ithaca clocks, the movement is signed "E.N. Welch • Forestville Conn • USA. It also says, "Manfd for the Ithaca Calendar Clock Company". The calendar mechanism has also been cleaned and serviced and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is a gorgeous all-original clock that's just waiting for a place on your mantle, or perhaps the credenza behind your desk at work?

Ithaca Regulator No. 1 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue)

 

In all the years we've been representing major collectors this is only the second one of this very scarce model that we've had available to us, and only the third one we've actually seen. Tall and graceful, this splendid Victorian era serpentine-sided perpetual calendar clock made by the Ithaca Calendar Clock Co of New York with beautiful carved crest and lower pediment awaits your careful examination and consideration.

Physical: The solid walnut cabinet with period graphite script serial "No. 1993" and dated "11-88", measures 22"w x 72"h x 9"d is in excellent physical condition with original finish. It has recently been thoroughly cleaned and professionally waxed to preserve the finish. The incised dial-surround is in excellent original condition and really sets this model apart from others.

The front section incorporates a large door that is fitted with glass. This opens to allow access to the two large paper-over-zinc dials. They both measure 12" in diameter and are in excellent original condition. The upper dial displays the time with Roman numerals and features a sweep second hand. The lower dial displays the day of the week, the month and calendar day.

The nickel-plated lyre pendulum is in excellent and original condition. The two weights are original and correct as are the two finials on top.

A previous owner filled two holes that were placed in the bottom of the base to secure the clock to the wall.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, weight-powered, nickel-plated movement with sweep center seconds, is powered by two weights and regulated by seconds-beating wooden rod and nickel-faced pendulum bob. The movement has recently been professionally overhauled and the calendar mechanism serviced. Both the clock movement and perpetual calendar mechanism function correctly. The calendar recognizes and compensates for leap years. Nice!

Comments: This is a fabulous clock that does everything but wind itself; that'll be your adoring job once a week as you and the clock pass time happily together. Give us a call to start the love affair in your home!

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 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?

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 49"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. Please note: winding crank included, but not the fancy one shown, with which our consignor will not part!

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?
