Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


247.    $50

Seth Thomas “Corsair”, ca. 1964.  A 5.75-inch diameter brass case with a screw bezel over a silvered dial.  Some tarnish to the case, especially the bezel.  The time spring on ship’s bell lever movement is disconnected or broken and so it does not run; I could not test the strike.  A label with Talley Industries on the back.  A handmade base is included, along with a key.  AAC sold a nickeled Corsair last summer for $196.  $50-$100.
