Rare
Seth Thomas "Signet" Model
Office Wall Clock (ca. 1890)

The most distinguishing feature of this rarely seen, beautifully crafted clock is the door:  the dramatic geometric pattern surrounding the dial is repeated in the lower tablet for viewing the pendulum.

Also notice the excellent original label inside the case. 

The hands are original and correct for this model.  The zinc dial has its original painted surface with some fading of the Roman numerals.  Some touch-up was performed on the outer edge of the dial.  This work is rather old and is not noticeable except upon close inspection.
