Marked "National Bank of Philadelphia" Clock in an all Original Uncatalogued Seth Thomas Oak Case Circa 1890 !!!

Arched Top Door above Dial over the Glass, with a Hand Carved & incised decorations on the Wood Dial Surround under the Glass.
I think everyone would agree that this is a Variant of the Model "31 or 32" on Steroids. The obvious differences are the Oversize Plaque Style of Backboard, the added Decorative Top Crest & taller Spindles in the Gallery, and the large lower Wood Bracket. Fancy Knurled Edge on Brass Weight.
Has the usual 2 Seth Thomas top & bottom crank key mortised case locks, with an added "Yale" Lock mortised into the Center for further Security.
(New Locksmith Replacement Keys are Provided)

Technical Note : There are 4 unusual Nickel Plated "L-Brackets" supporting the sides of the large Dial's Wood Surround. These appear to be original, due to the lack of any missing wood blocks underneath, which would normally be attached on the sides of the wood case.
