Seth Thomas 30 hour Movement - Andrew Jackson Tablet - Shelf Clock
Seth Thomas movement with a very interesting and detailed "custom" case with all the original glass and the original dial (the workmanship on the case is extraordinary.) It is a 1 day wind that strikes on the hour every hour (circa 1850s)
The story I got from the original owner (a watch and clock maker of over 50 years) was that he repaired a very old Grandfather clock for a friend, in the late Seventies, and as a favor the friend (who was a cabinet maker) decided to make this custom cabinet for him (the original case was in ruins.) The workmanship on this custom made clock case is outstanding. It is made from solid mahogany and cabinet grade mahogany veneer. The cabinet maker used all the original parts from the clock (clock works, pendulum, weights the original winding key, and even the original glass panels.) In addition to the custom case I was especially drawn to this piece because of the portrait of Andrew Jackson that is embossed on the bottom glass panel and in fantastic condition. The original Seth Thomas movement dates to the late 1800s. The case measures 25 3/4" high by 15 1/4" wide by 4 1/4" deep.
