Seth Thomas “Crystal Doric No. 0”, ca. 1913.  A 9.5-inch round-top crystal regulator with an 8-day movement, time and half-hour strike.  From the catalog description: “Rich gold-plated and lacquered case.  Fine, polished, round movement.  Four-inch convex silvered dial with raised bronze numerals. Cut serpentine hands.”  Note that this model came with a 15 day and 8-day movement, the latter is found here.  The four beveled glasses are perfect; the brass is tarnished on top.  It is running and striking on a cathedral gong.  Schmidt’s Antiques sold a very similar Doric No. 2 in 2020 for $450.  $250-$450.
