Seth Thomas & Sons statue clock, "No. 8000", C. 1876. One of a small number of large statue clocks Seth Thomas & Sons made. This one is 27" high and 20" wide at the base. ST did so many things right I hate to criticize them but their metal dials lost their paint, their porcelain dials chipped easily, and their statue clocks all lost their paint. Every one I have ever had, had to be refinished, this one in Syrian Bronze color. All the old paint remnants were removed, sand blasted, and done right. Movement is the French type, round, outside count wheel, strikes a bell on half hours. It was serviced and is running. The porcelain dial is very nice, no chips or hairlines, and the heavily beveled glass has no chips. A big, good looking statue clock, restored, ready to put on the mantle. Ly-American, Volume 2, #844.
