Seth Thomas antique Mantel clock, rosewood finish Adamantine clock, week running duration, professionally restored, clock is 100% original and in mint Restored condition. The case, finish,the marked S T movement, hands, dial, bezel, glass convex crystal,pendulum and brass bun feet were all born and raised with the clock.
Clock strikes on the half hour and announces the correct hour. The size is 9 1/4" tall, base is 8 1/2" by 5 1/2", dial is 5" diameter, Very nice S and T hands, circa 1910.
The case was cleaned, polished and waxed. All brass parts were polished to a mirror finish and sealed, just like they were originally. Like all my mechanical wind up clocks the movement was completely rebuilt. The clock movement was completely disassembled, Ultrasonically cleaned, all pivots were resurfaced and polished on the lathe, 8 new bronze bushings were installed into worn pivot holes, Two new mail springs. The clock was run and tested for 30 days prior to being offered for sale. Excellent time keeper with a very nice mellow chime. Clock can be shipped USPS Priority Mail.

A SIDE NOTE: To assist you in purchasing a good Antique Clock.The value of a Antique Clock is directly attributed to RESTORED CONDITION & ORIGINALITY Saying the restoration work was performed and actually performing the restoration work by a knowledgeable clockmaker are two different issues.The vast percentage of old clocks have a great deal of wear and should be completely disassembled for cleaning. This is the only way one can inspect for wear and then eliminate all the friction created by the wear. The latest scam is the clock was "Professionally Cleaned", No Key but keeps perfect time, this means the clock is not in good order. Simply dumping the clock movement into a can of Carburetor cleaner to wash off the dirt will not eliminate years of wear. Yes the clock may run for a few months with a healthy dose of WD-40. This is not proper clock servicing. ORIGINALITY, If the movement in not original to the case, known as a Marriage, it can not be assigned any Antique Value. The only value that can be assigned is for the sum of the parts for this "Un-Holy Marriage".
Questions you need to ask these on-line Bodgers, whether it is on Flea-b-a-y or even here on RL,
 Is the clock or watch movement original to the case.  what has been replaced and has the clock movement been properly restored. Get this information in writing. When the terms such as "Good Running Order", "Running", "Runs Great" generally means the clock is not keeping time and probably will not, this also means it has not been properly restored. Therefore you will need to spend several hundred dollars to have the clock put right.These few tips will save you some serious problems and money.
