Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


113.      $250

Seth Thomas “Carson”, 1884.  An unusual Seth Thomas City Series clock with a “sheet brass case, nickeled body.  Gold gilt ornaments at head and base.  Bronze alligator panel.”  Just over 14 inches in height with a beveled glass in the bezel and a porcelain dial with fancy hands.  The dial is signed.  The Seth Thomas movement is also unusual in that it strikes the half-hours on a cup bell and counts the hours on a cathedral gong.  Both have a pleasant sound.  The clock is running and striking; no label.  The Carson is another uncommon model; the most recent sale I can find was for $300 by Horton’s in 2017.  $250-$400.
