Seth Thomas Clock Co. adamantine black mantel, 1898.  A second example of a model I cannot find in Lys books on Seth Thomas clocks this indicates how popular these clocks were early in the last century, and how many models were made for which catalogs dont exist.  This clock is 17 inches long and 12 inches tall, in good condition.  There is marbling on the top and side ornamentation, with silvered incising on the front of the base; there are some spot losses on the top surface.  The side handles appear to be Egyptian lions of a sort.  The dial is yellowed paper with the ST logo in the center and proper hands, behind a flat glass.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement bears the ST logo and is striking a small cathedral gong on the hours and half hours.  There is a label on the back and a date (1898) on the bottom.  $35$125.
