Seth Thomas “Hurdle” novelty clock, ca. 1890.  A metal 7.5-inch easel clock with a one-day backwind and set movement; I think that it is silvered and not nickel.  The glass is beveled, the paper dial very dark, but note the ST logo below the mainstem, and the seconds hand at the top.  There should be three small figures playing stringed instruments on the rail at the bottom, but the center figure has run off.  The clock is running.  No sales that I can find.  $50-$100.
