Hello and welcome to another of my listings! Today for your consideration is this fabulous 1920s Seth Thomas Westminster Chime Shelf clock!It is a model number 96 and has a good running 124A movement in it! It is currently in full working order, chimes on the quarter-hour as it should. It runs fine, maybe just a tad slow honestly but can be adjusted on the dial with the key by the next owner. The case is a beautiful mahogany rubbed finish, and has fantastic inlays below the dial on the center and edges, it also has beautiful decorative columns on either side of the case. The case has some wear, small nicks and scratches that have been polished up with furniture polish.
The bezel has just been polished as well and the brass just looks phenomenal!! I would like to note that the bezel can be hard to open when closed, the easiest way is to work it with your nail at the edge or use a butter knife very, very, very carefully. The dial does have some small scratches and marks on it and someone drew little arrows in marker at some point to indicate which way to wind it as not to damage it.
All of the small stuff isn't terribly noticeable, in fact this clock is beautiful and would be a superlative addition to any home! The crystal has either a couple small scratches or incredibly small cracks on it, not noticeable from 5 feet away or further.
I believe this clock was serviced around 1990 therefore it could probably use a service again sometime in the future. Of course it comes with a key!Please examine the photos as they can provide more information and details and I can! Overall this overall this is an absolutely gorgeous 1920's mantle or shelf clock that would make a beautiful gift and or a fine addition to any home or collection!
