Southern Calendar Clock Co. “Fashion No. 4”, ca. 1884.  Perhaps the most common Fashion model, 32-inches high with the center finial, in solid walnut.  This one has a very old finish, two likely original painted dials with minimal chipping, warping, and soiling.  The time dial has a penciled note that the clock was repaired in Richmond VA in 1896. The seconds bit dial has been replaced.  The door glass also appears to be original, with good gold leaf lettering.  Both movements are very dirty, the 8-day time-and-strike is signed Seth Thomas, made for the SCCCo.  It is running and striking brightly on a large brass bell, the calendar movement advances sporadically.  The brass pendulum bob shows only the slightest remnants of damascening.  Two good labels inside.  One finial has lost its tip.  The strength of this example is its orginality, but it could stand a good cleaning inside and out.  We have been selling these models when in good condition like this for $800-$1200 of late.
