Seth Thomas Empire No. 17

Catalog Description:

C.1913, Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, CT, EMPIRE No. 17, crystal regulator, with 4 panes of heavy beveled glass and faux mercury pendulum. Condition: this clock came out of a home in Springfield, and the maid must have polished it every day, as the gilding is totally gone from the case, and it has turned dark brown. The porcelain dial and pendulum are nice. Movement ticks and strikes, but is dirty and will require cleaning before regular operation. Porcelain dial has a single horizontal hairline crack from 7 to 3. For additional information on this model, see Tran Ly's book on Seth Thomas and Movements, 3rd edition, Volume 1, page 242. Height 17 inches
