 “Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock with an 8-day time and alarm movement, ca 1880. This 9-inch walnut veneered case has a flat top, round base, and some packing goop on the front that I failed to wipe off before taking the picture, sorry. This one has gold around the glasses, correct door latch, and a new paper dial on the old pan. The glasses, brass pendulum, brass alarm bell, separate alarm movement, and an 8-day movement. It is their “U” movement and is original. It is running and the alarm is functioning. Both the movement and the label are signed by ST as being located at Thomaston, Conn. $750-$150.


710.           $25

Ansonia Clock Co. miniature cottage clock. I am going to guess that the 10-inch-high case was made partly with rosewood and partly with other woods, maybe oak, not sure. The glass looks like it came in the case but the gold edging may have been added at some time, the glass is just too nice to be over 100 years old. The paper dial is a replacement, same with the hands, pendulum and key. It has a round one-day, time only movement. $25-$50.

The time and strike springs are wound thru the dial and the alarm is wound thru the wood just above the base. The movement is their “K” type, it is running and performing properly. This is the first of this collector’s 350 clocks I am selling that does not have a perfect or very nice dial. I also believe the hands are replacements. The very nice rosewood case is 9-inches tall.
