Seth Thomas Clock Co. crystal regulator, "Empire No. 14", ca 1909. Seth Thomas, more than the other makers of crystal regulators put a lot of animals, and people, on the tops of their line of regulators. They have become very poplar with the collectors, and dogs still remain the favorite animal. The gilt finish on the clock is very good. 16-1/2 inches high, 4 good beveled glasses have only 1 tiny corner chip. This is a French type movement by Seth Thomas. It is round, outside count, imitation mercury pendulum, hanging Cathedral gong, and running. The case and movement are clean inside and out. The porcelain dial is showing 3 faint hairlines going out from the hand arbor, and a small sliver of a crack on the outer edge of the dial, at 9 o'clock. Almost identical to the clock in Ly-Seth Thomas, No. 279.
