THIS IS AN AUCTION, AND WE DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS OR OFFER PARTIAL REFUNDS.**THIS IS AN ANTIQUE SETH THOMAS BLACK ENAMELED SLATE MANTEL CLOCK, CIRCA. 1890'S. THIS CLOCK IS NOT RUNNING CONSISTANTLY BECAUSE THE PIVOTS ARE GUMMY, AND THE ESCAPEMENT GOES OUT OF BALANCE EASILY. ALL OF OUR CLOCKS ARE SOLD FOR PARTS OR REPAIR, IN "AS-IS" CONDITION WHETHER THEY RUN FLAWLESSLY OR NOT. THE CASE IS OBVIOUSLY VERY HEAVY AND THE BLACK ENAMEL HAS BEEN REPAINTED. THE PAINTER WAS CAREFUL NOT TO DISTURB THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK PLAQUES THAT HAVE SCENES ON THEM. THE EDGES OF THE SLATE MOLDING HAVE CHIPS ON THE FRONT, SIDES CORNERS AND BACK. THE PIERCED BRASS BACK DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES NICELY. IT IS ATTACHED TO THE MOVEMENT SIMILAR TO A FRENCH CLOCK. IN THE 11TH PHOTO YOU WILL SEE THAT THE BOTTOM BOARD IS A BIT SHORT FOR THE CASE AND IT IS MOST LIKEY A REPLACEMENT. THE MOVEMENT IS LINED UP TO THE GONG PROPERLY, HOWEVER THE SUSPENSION SPRING HAS BEEN SHORTENED SO THAT THE PENDULUM CLEARS THE IRON GONG STAND. THE FRONT BEZEL IS BENT AT THE HINGE AND IT NO LONGER CLOSES. THE BEVELED GLASS IS IN SUCH GOOD SHAPE, THAT WE CHOSE TO NOT TO TRY TO FIX THE BRASS BEZEL. IT WILL ARRIVE WITH A SMALL PIECE OF BLUE PAINTER'S TAPE KEEPING THE BEZEL CLOSED. THE VISIBLE ESCAPEMENT, 2 PART DIAL IS PORCELAIN WITH FIRED-ON BLACK ENAMEL. THE PIN-SET HANDS ADVANCE PROPERLY. THE DIAL IS SIGNED AND IN TERRIFIC SHAPE. THE MOVEMENT IS AN 8 DAY BRASS SPRING DRIVEN ROUND SETH THOMAS MOVEMENT THAT STRIKES A CATHEDRAL GONG TO COUNT THE HOURS AND IT HAS A HALF-HOUR PASSING STRIKE. THE MOVEMENT IS GUMMY FROM OLD OIL AND THE TINY FRENCH STYLE GEAR PIVOTS NEED TO BE CLEANED OF DEBRIS. THE CLOCK RUNS FOR SHORT PERIODS, BUT QUICKLY GOES OUT OF BALANCE. THE STRIKE IS SLOW TO INITIATE, BUT IT ALWAYS STRIKES THE CORRECT COUNT. THE CLOCK COMES WITH A PENDULUM, BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE A KEY. WE'VE BEEN USING THE SIZE 4 ON A UNIVERSAL CLOCK STAR KEY TO WIND THE ARBORS. THE TURN OF THE CENTURY SETH THOMAS SLATE MANTEL CLOCK MEASURES: 17 7/8" WIDE X 10 1/2" TALL X 6 3/4" DEEP. WE MAKE SURE THAT WE MEASURE TWICE AND DO OUR BEST TO DESCRIBE EACH ITEM. THIS CAME FROM A COLLECTORS / HOROLOGIST ESTATE. THERE WILL BE MANY MORE CLOCKS AND PARTS IN OUR EBAY STORE.
