HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS                             JULY 2019


727.           $100

Seth Thomas Clock Co. “Arch Top”, ca 1880. An early mantel clock, I suspect was first made much earlier than 1880. This case is mahogany veneered, standing only 16” tall, and has many curves and delicate veneer challenges. As is common with this model there are some small veneer chips on the base and perhaps a couple of small dents or chips elsewhere on the case. You have to love the wood grain on this case and the way those craftsmen in the 19th century knew how to lay veneer. Inside is a complete paper label, a coil gong, alarm movement, alarm bell, and the 8-day signed movement. The Geneva stops are still intact and the clock is running and striking. The original dial is exceptionally nice for its age. Most generally they had to be repainted when this old.  The hands are authentic. This Arch Top is as nice as I have sold.
