Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


19.       $750

Seth Thomas “Hecla”, 1884.  One of Seth Thomas’s finest shelf clocks with a quarter-hour strike on two nested bells behind the gong.  The 22.5-inch case is oak with a clean, old finish; I see no damage.  The door glass is likely original, the dial is paper with proper hands.  The 8-day, time, strike, and chime movement is signed and running, but the strike and chime trains are very sticky and will need attention.  The pendulum bob is damascened nickel.  There is a dark label inside on the bottom.  AAC sold one last summer for $1350 and Cottone’s sold one last year for $1300.  $800-$1200.
