Seth Thomas column & cornice, ca. 1870.  This model is not shown in Lys books on Seth Thomas clocks, but it is seen occasionally.  The 31-inch case is veneered in flame mahogany under a thick and crusty finish.  This case would clean up beautifully.  Both glasses are period/original, with the milk glass tablet well-preserved and a key attraction to this clock.  The painted contoured dial is clean and with good color in the spandrels, the hands are period.  The Seth Thomas lyre, 8-day, time-and-strike movement is running and striking properly, driven by two cast iron 8-day weights.  The label is gone, the only shortcoming for this clock.  I can find no sales of this model, but similar clocks by Birge & Fuller sell for $200 and up.  $200-$400.
