Seth Thomas Large Rosewood Shell Column

Catalog Description:

Seth Thomas, "Large Rosewood Shell Column", ca 1863. Rosewood veneer column case is 32" high, has real good shell columns, capitals and bases havebetter than 90 percent of the original gold. The rosewood veneer is great on thedoors, the rolling pieces on the base and the rolling top, for the most part.The very top edge of the case has been banged several times and needs a fewthin pieces of veneer patched. Some patching has been done in 2-3 flat placesbut the wrong veneer was used. The bottom baseboard flat will also need acouple of flat veneer pieces attended to. The old glasses are fabulous, almostperfect. The original dial pan has been professionally repainted and matchesthe glasses. The label beats all I have seen, just about perfect, a littlepaper loss in one weight chute and some light stain on the bottom. Clean, signed, brass movement, strung with cat gut, clock is running. Pairof old and correct weights, pendulum bob and key. Ly-Seth Thomas No. 987.
