Antique American Clocks                     JULY 2024

Seth Thomas Clock Co. “Parlor Calendar No. 3”, 1877. A 27-inch case veneered in rosewood with just a few smalls chips along the edges, and no repairs.  The dial glasses are old, the square zinc dial pans hold old and yellowed paper with some losses, wear, and soiling.  The hands are proper.  The Seth Thomas 8-day, time-and-strike, spring-driven movement is running and striking on the brass bell, and the calendars are advancing. A good label on the backside of the door, providing the date of manufacture, and a ‘do not oil’ label inside.  The RT Andrews calendar mechanism is not always found in this model, as it was introduced around 1877.  The roller papers here are old. A nice example.  AAC sold a similar example in 2022 for $280.  $225–$325.
