Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


112.      $100

Seth Thomas “Albany”, 1884.  A 20-inch City Series clock veneered in walnut with a beautiful finish, original door glass with a stenciled image and framed by gold and black trim.  The dial has likely been repainted, as there is no chipping or wear evident; the minute hand is a slightly incorrect replacement.  The signed Seth Thomas 8-day, time-and-strike lyre movement is running weakly and will need attention, despite its shiny and clean appearance.  The strike on the cathedral gong is rich and deep; there is a proper ST pendulum bob and a worn black label on the inside bottom.  The date of manufacture is stamped on the back.  $100-$200.
