All parts that came from a rare Southern Calendar Clock Co. “Fashion No. 6 case. This is the black dial model that sells for $3000 to $5000. All the parts are present to build a black dial clock except the pendulum and calendar hand. Both dials are in their wood surrounds. Note the veneer loss above the time dial. There are nickel dial rings, three nickel hands for the time dial, calendar hand is missing, 8 day signed time movement, calendar movement, Cathedral gong, nickel beat scale, door lock, and pendulum stick that is broken. All the attachments are on the calendar movement that attach to the time movement. Buy any of these parts separately and you are talking some substantial money. $750-$1000.
Seth Thomas ships clock, with advertising on the dial, “Albina Engine & Machine Works Inc. / Portland, Oregon. U.S.A.” The 8 day movement is double wind, time only, and is running. The bezels are 8 ½ inches, the painted dial is 6 ¾ inches. Everything looks to be original, shows normal wear and tear for the age of the clock. Earliest repair date on the back of the clock is “1930”. I figure it is ca 1921. $500-$750.
