Antique American Clocks January 2022
Seth Thomas “Regulator No. 25”, ca. 1910. This model came in two sizes, 32 inches and 37 inches; this is the larger version. The case is “Flemish oak” with simple carvings but a bright geometric pattern door glass. Both glasses are old, the tablet repainted by Lee Davis. The dial holds the original paint but is in bad shape and has been touched up extensively. The hands are correct. The 8-day, time-only movement is the standard ST #2 movement; it is running without problem. There is an old weight and pendulum stick and bob. No label. These clocks are best known for having been used in the 47 Harvey House restaurants along the Santa Fe railroad. There is no indication that this clock was one of those clocks, but I have not seen any with restaurant labeling, so… Horton’s sold one in 2019 for $1500. $1200-$1600.
Can I return my clock if I don’t like it?
Absolutely! Save your packing and box, you have 30 days from receipt to return it if you are unhappy. If the clock is not as described, or I missed something important and that is not evident from the pictures, I will refund your shipping costs (both ways) as well. Find another auction company that does that!
