Featuring:  Seth Thomas Clocks

       In offering many antique clocks by this renowned maker, we provide a brief history of the company founded by its namesake.  A native of Connecticut, Seth Thomas founded his own clock manufacturing company in 1814.  He was highly successful, operating a factory in Plymouth Hollow, until 1853, when he organized the business into the Seth Thomas Clock Company, a joint stock corporation.

       In 1865, six years after his death, the town of Plymouth Hollow came to be known as Thomaston in his honor.  The Seth Thomas Clock Company continued in Thomaston and was family-operated until 1931.

       Over the years, the company produced many excellent quality clocks in various case styles popular during the time period including floor, wall, and mantel clocks.  The clock making company survived under different owners and in different locations until finally going out of business in 2009 under the Colibri Group.

       The name "Seth Thomas" still survives and can be seen on contemporary websites.  However, it appears that the brand is not associated with an actual clock manufacturing company.

       Early Seth Thomas clocks can be generally dated by the address on the label.  Later, during the 1880s until the early 20th century, many clocks had a stenciled date code on the back of the case that incorporated the year with the numerals reversed, followed by a letter representing the month.
