Seth Thomas mantle clock, "Bee", C. 1884. An ebony cabinet case, marqueterie panel with flowers and the "bee", from whence the name comes. Carved panels above and below the dial, railing around the top, etched and cutouts on both sides, fluted each side of the front edges. 4 turned wood feet. A lot going on with this small 14" high clock. French sash with beveled glass, 4.5" porcelain dial is excellent, and signed. The 15 day movement is signed several places, the most interesting is, "R. Kaisor". I have seen the name on other Seth Thomas movements but have no idea what it means unless he is given credit for designing the clock. Strikes half hours on a standing cathedral gong. The movement could stand to be serviced, it has been some time. The bonus in this clock is a secret compartment above the movement, inside the case. Ly-Seth Thomas #1297.
