Seth Thomas mantle clock, a clock of many names, "Eclipse", and "Balltop" are the most common, and both names fit the clock. I have had dozens of this model and seen slight variations in many of them, most noticeably the top and side trim. A couple of things I should say first, the 24.5 inch walnut case has been beautifully restored, most anyone would be proud to display it. Secondly, there is a new paper dial on the old metal pan, expertly fitted, just the right color for the wood and original glass. All the metal has been cleaned and polished, the 8 day movement with strike and alarm is functioning properly. The numbers stamped on the case frame are "A2236". If Seth followed their usual pattern that would translate to Jan 22, 1936, or something equally as brilliant. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 479.
