Seth Thomas "No. 5" Office Calendar Clock
Sold for $4,500
ca. 1875-1886, Connecticut, in a modern Gothic-style walnut case decorated with burl walnut veneer and incising, with an arched crest and matching finials, set with side colonettes, the dial marked "ST" and the calendar dial marked "Patented, Feb 15, 1876".
h. 47", w. 24", d. 7-3/4"
Notes: An identical clock is in the collection of the U.S. Senate.
**In good condition. Some paint loss to the dials, mostly around their mounting screws. The top dial has some additional paint loss at the lower edge of the second hand dial. Appears to retain its original wavy glass windows. The paper rolls appear original as well. The wooden shaft of the pendulum is cracked at the slot. The weight is present but not currently attached to the cable. It is resting in the bottom right cavity of the case. Winding key and door key present. We are uncertain as to its running condition.
Modern Gothic-style refers to a design form from the third qurter 19th century.
This is not a reproduction case.
