Seth Thomas Clock Co., carved case weight clock, “Putnam”, ca 1900. This is a popular weight clock reissued by Seth Thomas. The mahogany veneered case is 36 ¼ inches tall, expertly carved splat, half columns and paw feet. The case has not been refinished but is very clean and polished. The only thing we notice is different since it was manufactured is some paint flaking from the tablet scene. It has a complete backboard label, unusual gong stand, large iron weights, pendulum, and original dial and hands. The brass lyre movement is clean and running and signed properly. It strikes the gong each hour loud but deep tone. The door has a key lock, but no escutcheon or key. The beautifully carved case sells for half the money of a carved case made just a few years earlier. The thing that gets my attention most on these old clocks, are the original screws holding the dial. That tells me Bubba has not been working on the clock. Ly-Seth Thomas #1721. $400-$600.
