Ship From So. CA


(original catalogue drawing)

 

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 Office Calendar No. 1 in Rosewood ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

We don't see these large office calendars very frequently. Like much of the weight-driven Seth Thomas inventory in the country, they have slowly been drawn into serious collections and are not released often. So here's your opportunity!

Physical: The burled rosewood case is in excellent condition. It was refinished at some point in the past and looks great. Many of these we've seen over the years have been missing veneer or had veneer peeling... this one's in excellent condition. The case measures 19.5"w x 40"h x approximately 6" d. There is also a great label inside the door with the original instructions as well as a service technician's card from a company dating back to 1925. The 12" clock and 14" calendar dials still bear the original paint, unusual on very old Seth Thomas clocks. The weight is also original.

Mechanical: The weight-driven time-only movement and calendar movement have been overhauled and are in excellent running order. The calendar roller papers are original.

Comments: If you've been thinking about owning a major American calendar clock, this is one of the most desirable. Its unique shape draws the immediate attention of anyone entering the room where it will surely dominate. We've seen these clocks sell at auction for significantly more; this one is really priced right and everything is correct. Give us a call to start the 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.

(earlier version - catalogue drawing)

 

This is definitely the "Big Mama" of the Seth Thomas parlor (shelf) perpetual calendar models. This particular clock, which is in spectacular condition, is the later of the two versions. We've seen only a few of these in the 15 years we've been in business, and personally prefer the "open" look of this model to the earlier version with the horizontal bar through the loops on top.

Physical: The walnut case measures 36"h x 22"w x 6"d and has the original finish. All wood parts are original and accounted for, including the two ornately carved lions on either side of the base. The 10" dials were repainted by the famous dial-painter, Martha Smallwood in her Georgia studio. The roller covers for the calendar appear to be original. The hands are correct and original.
The original directions label remains on the back of the door in excellent physical condition.

There is a stenciled date on the back (Seth Thomas was inconsistent with these stencils, but more consistent in this time period than later). The date is always stenciled backward; the month forward. This one was made in May (E), 1892.

Mechanical: The eight-day time and cathedral gong-strike clock and perpetual calendar movements were professionally overhauled and both are in excellent running order ready for years of great service for you.


Comments: There are not a heckuva lot of this species today remaining in "the wild". We saw one offered recently that was missing at least the front carving in the middle of the case and pawned off as "rare" and "awesome". Rare? Well, sorta, but certainly not awesome, and not something you'd want to invest in with major carved pieces either missing or replaced. This one's the whole enchilada and the real McCoy (what a word-picture). Come 'n git it... or call!

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, c.1896 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

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... !

(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!
