357.           $200

“Seth Thomas, Thomaston, Conn.”, a City Series parlor clock, “Albert”, ca 1886. This is the most perfect of the 350 clocks that came from a Colorado collector. It looks new inside and out. OK, he may have had the dial repainted, maybe, I am not sure after examining the other parts of the clock. The rosewood case is 16 ½ inches high, original glasses, perfect label, signed gong, iron bell for alarm to ring on, and the 8-day time and strike movement that is running. I hope no one bids. Ly-Seth Thomas #504. $250-$400.

“Welch, Spring & Co., Forestville, Conn.”, mantel clock, “Italian No. 3”, ca 1868. The rosewood veneered case is 13 inches tall, has the typical Welch door latch which is very unhandy, original glasses, painted columns, not gilt but more ivory shade, and complete label inside. The paper dial and the hands are replacements, pendulum bob is correct. And it has a 30-hour time and alarm movement. The alarm sounds on an iron bell. It is running. $75-$150.


361.           $40

Welch, Spring & Co., Forestville, Conn.”, mantel clock, “Italian No. 3”, ca 1868. Note the base is a little different than #360 and is about ¼ inch taller. The glasses are original, columns were gold gilt probably originally, now dirty and mottled. The door latch, dial, and pendulum are correct. The movement is 30-hour, time only, and running. The label is spotty, not absolutely sure “Spring & Co, Forestville, Conn.” are on the label. Case and dial not nearly as nice as #361. Also, the case is thicker than #360. Perhaps it is just a Welch, not Welch, Spring. $50-$100.
