Seth Thomas Clock Co. pillar and scroll, Plymouth, Connecticut, with Terry’s patent 5 train wood movement, which Seth Thomas copied. Mahogany veneered case is 31” high, some satinwood inlay on the top. The clock has been restored, tablet painted (or touched up) without removing the original glass from the door. The old putty is still intact around both glasses. Ivory escutcheon, door lock with key, brass finials are solid and are replacements. The case has been cleaned/polished and rubbed to a nice furniture finish. I cannot tell if any wood parts to the base have been restored as they have the feel of originals. The right scroll tip has been expertly repaired, hardly visible from the front. Label inside is excellent, pair of old iron weights, and an old brass bob. Excellent wood dial has no fading or stretch marks, and it has what appear to be original hands. The clock has been owned in the past by one or more collectors who took good care of the early clock. As with all clocks, we are only custodians of these rare treasurers for a short time. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 658. $500-$1000.
