Seth Thomas crystal regulator, "Empire No. 13", ca 1909. Case is just less than 12 inches high, is not plain, but highly decorated top and bottom. We rarely see these old crystal regulators finished in silver. From top to bottom, inside and out, even the imitation mercury 2 jar pendulum, and the suspended gong stand, all silver and extremely nice. No evidence it has been refinished. 4 great beveled glasses. 8 day movement strikes the gong on half hours. Runs, but a little out of beat. One piece porcelain dial, hand decorated with garland of flowers, one hairline and it would disappear with a cleaning. Correct hands, machined dial ring. Unusual to see a pretty crystal regulator in a different color. Ly-Seth Thomas No. 278.
