A tambour-style (Napoleon hat) wooden case clock with mahogany finish made by the Plymouth Clock Company - a subsidy of Seth Thomas Clock Company. The clock was made in the 1930s and has an interesting quarter strike that does a single bing-bong at the quarter hour, double at the half, and a triple at the three quarters of the hour. At the hour there is a single tone strike that counts the hour. The strike is on chime rods and the sound is very pleasant. It has an 8-day movement (wind once per week) and is the typical Seth Thomas 89 movement. Comes with a double-sided key. One side to wind the time and strike mainsprings and the other smaller hole side to adjust time regulation (faster / slower). The case is about 19 inches wide, 9 inches tall and has a depth of 6 inches. It has its original label on the inside of the back door.

The movement was just taken apart and each component cleaned, wheel pivots polished, bushings repaired, reassembled, adjusted and freshly lubricated. Clock runs very well and sounds very nice - ready for many more years of enjoyment. It is fully functional and keep time well.

$200. Cash only. Email (reply above) or call/text (nine 03 03 five six) for more information.
