Her Majesty the Queen of all Seth Thomas clocks. This beautiful Seth Thomas Chime No. 97 was produced in the year of 1928.

Step up molding on the bottom front and sides of the clock with step down moldings at the 3 and 9.
An open scroll like outline that starts at the 3 and 9 and stops at each end. Or recessed wood design around the dial giving a dish like appearance. A few minor character marks are in the case that does not distract from her beauty which can all be seen in the pictures.No scratches or chips are on the convex glass and the bezel door and back door opens and closes properly. A nice original 5-inch silvered dial with very minor wear. Raised bronzed Arabic numbers with fancy bronze serpentine hour and minute hands compliment the dial.
