Seth Thomas Short Drop
“School House” Wall Clock




(21" H x 14" W x 5" D)

(circa 1900, date code on
back but difficult to read)

Price:  $275.00

(Item #AC-6)
 

This fine clock is cased in quarter-sawn oak with veneered sections.  The Seth Thomas catalog listed this eight-day-running timepiece as the “Gilt” model. 

The oak-cased examples had a gilt trim ring on the dial to simulate a double-sunk dial but lacked the gold painted lines that were applies to the octagon head of
mahogany-cased examples.

The original 10" diameter painted dial has been professionally restored.  The case is refinished with original veneer intact but with small losses to the top of the octagonal head .

The movement, upper and lower glasses, and case hardware are all original.

In excellent running order with movement overhaul including a new mainspring!
