“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Plymouth, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock. The 9-inch flat top, round base rosewood case is excellent, probably has a replaced glass, original door latch, repainted dial, ST hands, old pendulum and key, and a replaced label. The 30-hour time only movement is their “H” type. The collector of these clocks had this one marked as an 8-day but I believe it is one-day. $100-$200.

61.        $75

“Winterhalder & Hofmeier, Friedenweiler, Germany”, miniature cottage clock, flat top, beveled base, stands 9 3/8 inches high, ca 1927. The mahogany case is excellent, has a latching door, some wood inlay on the door, and flat glass. The wood back is removable to access the movement and pendulum. The painted dial is excellent. The 30-hour time and alarm movement is signed. The movement is running and the alarm rings on a metal bell. $100-$200.

65.       $150

“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, Conn.”, one of the earliest City Series clocks, “St. Louis”, ca 1874. I am sure a lot of collectors could care less about the City Series clocks but to me they were some of the finest mantel clocks made in that era of mantel clock making. This case is 15.5” high and has 3 or 4 different veneers or shades of veneers on the case. None of the veneering was easy, for it has convex and concave rolls, and skewed and flat veneer. Other than a hauling bump the veneer is very good. The bottom glass is original, the dial is original, clean, and has a small chip at 12. There is an excellent paper label, coil gong, and old pendulum and key. The eight-day movement is running and strikes the coil gong on the hours and the alarm movement strikes on an iron bell. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 208. $150-$250.

67.       $50

“Winterhalder & Hofmeier”, German made clock with an overpasted label of, “Camerer, Cuss & Co., London”. Camerer imported some clocks from the Black Forest for resale under their label. Camerer would have sold the clock in the 1920-1930 time frames. Movement is signed “W&H”, complete Camerer label on the back of the door. This very unusual wood case is 9 ½ inches high, has four wood feet underneath, brass sash, flat glass, Dial signed, “Camerer, Cuss & Co.”, and the hands appear to be correct. The movement is running seemingly for 2-3 days. $50-$100.

69.       $100

“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Plymouth, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock, flat top, OG base. The near perfect rosewood case is 9 inches tall, has gold around the glasses, probably enhanced. The original dial was not repainted for it was plenty good. Good glasses, door latch, complete label, iron bell and original pendulum. The type “C” movement is running and there is an alarm that rings on a large iron bell. The movement and label were signed by ST as being at Plymouth, Conn. $150-$250.

68.       $100

“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Plymouth, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock with a flat top and OG base. The 30-hour time only movement is type “O”, a variation movement. Both the movement and label are signed by ST at Plymouth, Conn. The 9-inch mahogany case has excellent gold around the glasses, possibly enhanced. The dark spot under the door knob is not a flaw, just wood color. There are good glasses, repainted dial, complete label, and an old pendulum. $150-$250.

71.        $100

“Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, Conn.”, miniature cottage clock with round top, and no door. You can hang the pendulum from underneath and remove the dial to check the one-day time, strike, and alarm movement. The time and strike springs are wound thru the dial and the alarm is wound thru the wood just above the base. The movement is their “K” type, it is running and performing properly. This is the first of this collector’s 350 clocks I am selling that does not have a perfect or very nice dial. I also believe the hands are replacements. The very nice rosewood case is 9 inches tall. There is a partial label on the back. $100-$200.

70.       $50

Rosewood miniature cottage clock, stands only 9 inches high, There are brass ornaments around the front of the case and on top. The 8-day movement and pendulum can be viewed from the bottom. The pendulum got lost somewhere in packing or transit.   I hung a pendulum of mine, the movement runs well, but not sure if the pendulum will need adjustments to keep accurate time, and of course it is not the original pendulum. $75-$150.
