HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS JULY 2019
Seth Thomas “Castle”, ca. 1884. A beautiful mahogany case, 27 inches high, with burl around the top and an original stenciled glass. The 8-inch dial was repainted by The Dial House, the hands are correct. The one-day, weight-driven, time-and-strike movement is running and striking. The brass bell is mounted on a signed, nickel-plated Seth Thomas base next to the alarm mechanism. The nickel-plated pendulum bob is damascened, the weights are plain OG-style iron weights. No label, and no date on the the back. This is a stately clock that rivals the Lincoln and Garfield and looks great next to either. It is not a common clock by any means; We have not sold one in the last 5 years and I can find only 3 records on the internet (none in the Antique Clocks Price Guide). Fontaine’s sold a similar example in 2012 for $400. $400-$600.
