Seth Thomas Clock Co. “Regulator No. 18”, ca 1883. A clock for lovers of “big clocks”, it stands 54” high, great oak case that is all original, and came right off the consignor’s great room wall where it had proudly hung for many years. Their clocks sure are nice for they bought only the very best and in addition to being a collector he was a super repairman so all the clocks they consigned run as they should. The case is all original, and the dial paint was stabilized, the three hands look to be original, same with the brass weight, brass pendulum bob, wood stick, brass beat scale, and the brass pulley. Part of the old label is inside. The label was beat up pretty well by the weight and pendulum bob hitting it. There are no extra holes anywhere meaning the dial and movement are original to the case. The 8-day movement is signed and running. This is probably the most original and nicest No. 18 I have seen. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 300. Booked for $4500 several years ago. That is what we got for some sold in previous sales. $2000-$2500.
