Catalog Description:

Seth Thomas rare mantle clock, "Hecla", ca 1884. This unusual clock with its twin, "Atlas", uses a movement that strikes quarter hours on two cup bells (Bim Bam), and hours on a Cathedral Gong.22.5 inches high case is made of walnut, some burl used, full turned columns with deep carving-etchings, same on the base and top. Carvings also used on the top. The clock has been used, not placed on the living room mantle just for show. It has not been abused but does have nicks and slivers on the base and top. You only see them on close inspection. There are many good points; great original glass, very nice nickel bob and gong stand, original dial-not repainted, most of the black label below the pendulum, and the 8 day spring movement is running and striking. Factor stamp on the back of the case, "4881K", meaning it was made November 1884. Ly-Seth Thomas No. 1006.
