Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 8 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Parlor calendars were a mainstay of the Seth Thomas line of clocks. This is only the third Parlor Calendar No. 8 we've ever had available to us. As you will discover in the myriad of photos below, this is avery straight clock with the vibrant color contrast between the walnut and the maple woods that's in wonderful overall condition. Take a close look for yourself...

Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 8 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Physical: The walnut case measures 18"w x 27.5"h x 8.5"d and is in excellent condition. As with many of these older clocks, the finish was overcoated at some point in the past. After years and years of cleaning, finish sometimes becomes thin and/or dry. Overcoating was and still is a common restoration practice, without stripping and refinishing the case. One of the finials was damaged so a museum restorer created an exact duplicate. The 8" clock and calendar dials have the original paint and are in excellent condition

Mechanical: The eight-day gong-strike movement and the calendar movement were just professionally serviced and are in excellent running order. The clock strikes a very heavy, resonant cathedral gong on the hour. This same model was also made with a less expensive and far less desirable cup bell strike as you can see in this example. The calendar roller papers appear to be original and there are two nice labels, one in the back behind the calendar movement, and another on the inside of the door.

Comments: This is splendid example of this model and the deal we struck with our consignor has it priced well below either of the prior two we've sold. Lotta clock for the money. It will look great in your "parlor" or perhaps on the credenza behind your desk – your choice. Give us a call to start the process.

(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. Very difficult to find this model in cherry. There is a factory date stencil on the back indicating the clock was manufactured in April, 1888.

This same unique "winged" case was used for the Seth Regulator No. 9. We also have one of those available – perhaps you should consider a "bulk" purchase and buy them both!


Physical: The cherry case has the original finish and original glass. It is in excellent physical condition and measures 15.75"w x 48"h x 7"d. The 10" dials have been professionally restored and are also in excellent physical condition. In addition, please note the beautiful damascened pendulum bob.

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 designed Seth Thomas case with a perpetual calendar, just waiting to be there to remind you of your next appointment. Stay on schedule and give us a call to start the process!

Here is the matching calendar clock to the Welch Regulator No. 5 that we have on American Clocks, pg 2. It's a beauty – perhaps you should consider both of them as a matched pair?

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 19"w x 52"h x 5"d is in excellent physical condition. It appears to have been overcoated at some point in the past, where the existing thin shellac coat is "melted" with solvent to be brushed smooth, rubbed out and then an additional coat added. It looks great as you will see in the photos below. The 10" diameter dials are both in excellent original condition with original paint.

Mechanical: The two-weight, time-only movement has recently been professionally overhauled and the B.B. Lewis perpetual calendar movement just serviced. Both are keeping time and date well.
(Be sure to read the history link just above for background on this inventor.)

Comments: This is a great clock worthy of deep consideration by any serious clock collector. First time we've ever had access to the calendar configuration of this case. Pair it with the clock version and you've got an out-of-the-ballpark combination sure to awe your friends! Give us a call to start the acquisition process.

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.

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 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 walnut burl finish has been 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 5 - Original Catalogue Drawing

Original Catalogue Drawing

We've only had a handful of this Seth Thomas model in the past and are delighted to have "two flavors" to offer you at present (see STF-0901 above), one in walnut burl and this one in oak – perhaps one for home and one for the office? This is a large clock, 50" in length, and will make a statement wherever it is hung. This model was featured in the 1879-1893 catalogues.

Be sure to look at the unusual viewing window in the bottom through which you can see the pendulum bob. This is a great example of the high woodworking skill and phenomenal attention to detail typical of the Seth Thomas firm.

Physical: This Office Calendar No. 5 is in excellent physical condition and measures 24"w x 50"h x 8"d. The finish is original as is the wavy glass, pendulum and weight. The 14" diameter dials both have the original paint. Both are in good, age- appropriate physical condition.

The roller papers, hands and weight are original (there has been a small repair to the calendar hand).

Mechanical: The signed 8-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 crummy quality knockoffs. This clock is the real McCoy waiting and ready for you... and at a great price.
