Antique Seth Thomas "Regulator No. 6" Model Clock

Previous Model - Next Model
Seth Thomas Regulator No. 6

Catalog Description:

Seth Thomas, "Regulator No. 6", C. 1884. The walnut case is 48" tall and 16.75" wide. The locking door has the original old glass. The inside backboard has some small skinned places where Bubba hauled the clock with the weight and pendulum still inside the case. One top finial has about 1/8" missing from the tip, and one bottom finial has been nicely retipped. The base has had some veneer repairs, and the overall finish shows it has not lived in a controlled environment. Heat and cold, smoke and tars, working together, and not having furniture polish and oils applied occasionally have hurt the finish maybe 10%. Not a big thing and can probably be brought back with some elbow grease. The old style, rectangular plate, 8 day, time only movement is clean and a strong runner. The old dial was professionally repainted, the hands are old but probably not original to this clock. The pendulum stick and hardware are contemporary, the weight is an old replacement, and the silvered beat scale is original and in good condition. Ly-Seth Thomas #368, #391. $3000-$4000.
