Seth Thomas “Capitol No. 2”, ca. 1911. A second model in the Capitol Series, this one with the US Capitol color image.  The 23-inch oak case has a dark crusty finish from repeated varnishing; the original glass shows slight discoloration but no significant losses.  The paper dial is signed and shows typical wear, the hands are proper.  The Seth Thomas 8-day, time and half-hour strike movement will run briefly and needs to be cleaned; the strike on a cathedral gong is slow.  There is a proper ST pendulum bob and a white (now yellowed) label on the inside bottom and on the back.  Alarm untested.  Another rare model with only a few sales on LiveAuctioneers. $150–$250.
