"Arch Top" Mantel Clock
is a nice example of a popular Seth Thomas Clock Company model, ca.

This beautiful piece retains its original Geneva stop-work, which
allows the mainspring to function within its optimum power range. The
clock strikes the hour on a resonant coiled gong. The case retains

condition. The original painted dial has a few small losses, but the
surface is stable. Hands, glass, and case lock are original.
