Antique American Clocks                     JULY 2024

140.               $600

Southern Calendar Clock Co. “Fashion No. 3”, ca. 1878.  The first Fashion with a full glass door and Fashion lettering.  A 32-inch walnut case with a clean, dark, old finish; the three finials are period/original.  The door glass looks like a modern replacement with good Fashion lettering; the dials have been repainted, the hands are correct.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement was made by Seth Thomas “solely for the Southern Calendar Clock Co.” and is running and striking on the brass bell, and the calendar is advancing.  The “star” pendulum bob is missing the leaf embellishment normally on top of the bob.  Good labels inside.  AAC sold a Fashion No. 3 last winter for $805.  $600–$900.
