Seth Thomas oak mantle clock, one of the "Fleet Series", ca 1909. The tablets show four of the celebrated battleships that took part in the famous peace cruise around the world in 1907-8-9. This near perfect oak case is 23 inches high. On the back is a factory stamp showing this clock made in 1915. There is a full label on the back that I have never seen before. It states that this clock is a "Souvenir of the World Peace Cruise". 8 day movement strikes half hours and hours, and is running. The paper dial is original, showing years of constant use, and a small tear below the 6. Ly-Seth Thomas #1109.
