Seth Thomas mantle clock, "Sharp Gothic", ca 1902. Walnut veneered case is 19.5" high and in "almost" perfect condition. The veneer, particularly on the front has a burl look, the grain going ever which way. Note that one finial tip has taken a hike, and there is one veneer nick on the base, right rear. Wonderful waterfowl glass has been rebacked with black paint, looks good, and should hold the pretty scene. The old original dial has had a heap of paint touchup, all outside of the time ring. More flaking each time the clock is handled and someday it will have to be repainted. One day movement strikes hours on a coil gong, running real well. We almost never see Seth Thomas steeple clocks, very few were made. Ly-Seth Thomas No. 1081.
