Antique American Clocks                     JULY 2024

147.              $500

Seth Thomas Clock Co. “Parlor Calendar No. 4”, 1878.  A 24-inch walnut case with an old/original finish and ebonized trim.  There are some scattered chips and scratches; both glasses are likely original, as are the painted dials and hands.  There is yellowing, chipping, and wear to the dials, with some poor touch-up to the calendar dial.  The calendar roller papers are likely original.  The Seth Thomas 8-day, time-and-strike movement is running and striking effortlessly, and the calendars are advancing.  There is a dated instruction label on the back of the door and a ‘do not oil’ label inside.  An uncommon model, very original and in excellent condition.  AAC sold a slightly nicer example last year for $760.  $500–$800.
