Ithaca Hanging Library No. 6 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

original catalogue

 

We have not in our previous 23+ years had the opportunity to present this wonderful and unique Ithaca model nor have we seen one. It is presently hanging in our home and it's absolutely beautiful. Runs great, too!

Physical: The solid walnut case, which measures 11.75"w x 32.5"h x 4.5"d is in excellent condition and features the ORIGINAL FINISH. The 6" time and 8" calendar dials as well as the rollers are in excellent condition and appear to be original. The little serpentine horizontal piece just below the time dial has a locking knob that facilitates accessibility to the pendulum, either to install or restart the clock. Cool feature!
For shipping, the crown lifts off.

The original backs on these clocks are often found in very poor condition. In this particular case the back is a piece of plywood very professionally made and installed long before our consignor owned the clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-strike mechanism was serviced in the past six months and is in excellent mechanical condition. The wire gong is a little bit "clangy" so we've wound only the time (right) side. Runs great and the calendar functions correctly as well.

This clock originally also had an alarm but, like most alarm movements it died and was long ago removed, so the winding arbor on the calendar dial is not used. No loss as they were unpredictable and also clangy.

Comments: We have a great set of photos of this clock. Enjoy them and give us a call to make it your own; you'll be very pleased with this clock!

(original catalogue)

 

Here's another clock that we've never had available to us to offer to you in our 23 years online, the Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 6, this one in Walnut, circa 1882-1887.

Physical: The walnut case (also offered in oak and old oak starting in 1888) measures 27"h x 14.5"w x 5.75"d and is in very good physical condition. It was refinished at some point in the past. The case also has the original glass top and bottom. Both dials are in excellent condition.

The 8" clock dial was restored by our favorite dial-painter, Lesley Fernandez; the calendar dial is original. The clock dial has the ST logo + U.S.A. + Pat Dec 28, 1875 (which matches the stamp on the movement). The calendar says Patent Date Feb 15, 18.. (last two digits faded and could perhaps be seen with a black light).

There is a calendar directions label on the inside of the door.

Mechanical: The time-and strike clock movement was professionally cleaned and oiled recently and is in excellent mechanical condition.It strikes the hours on a coiled gong; after 1888 this model struck a cup bell instead of the gong. The R.T. Andrews-design perpetual calendar mechanism was professionally overhauled and is in excellent operating condition.

Comments: Such an interesting looking clock and in such great shape physically and mechanically. A great addition to a calendar collection or as a general decor piece. Call us to start the process and get it enroute to you via The UPS Store.

(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.

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 some older touchup. The roller papers on the calendar mechanism are original. The weight, which runs down the inside out of view is original and has a new cable. The clock also has the classic damascened Seth Thomas pendulum bob and original winding crank. The finials are correct and original.

There is an original label inside in very good condition.

The date of manufacture is stenciled (always backward) on the back of the clock indicating December 1886 (6881L).

Mechanical: The clock and calendar movements were professionally serviced in 2018 and are both in excellent running order.

Comments: We've only had four or five of these in the nearly twenty-one 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 and at a great price. Give us a call to start the process!
