Antique Seth Thomas "Regulator No. 5" Model Clock

Previous Model - Next Model
Seth Thomas Regulator No. 5

Catalog Description:

C.1885, Seth Thomas, "Regulator No. 5", in mahogany and in excellent original condition. The #5 is one of the most difficult Seth Thomas models to find. The consignor of this clock has owned it for 30 years and drove it here from Chicago to avoid any damage to the clock. For details on this model, see Tran Duy Ly's book titled Seth Thomas Clocks & Movements, (1996), pages 116-117. The movement is of the highest quality, with cut pinions, maintaining power and a seconds hand. The 2-piece porcelain dial is mounted to the front of the movement in exactly the same fashion as the dial of a "Vienna regulator". The only small flaws we can see are a series of nicks in the pendulum bob where some one transported it with the weight against it, and 2 dry splits in the front door at the top. If not for these last items, the condition would be outstanding. Original case lock and key intact, also oirg knurled weight and wooden handle crank. Note we sold lot 407 in April, 2003, for $12,300+. Height 50 inches
