Seller: saved400days (1,471) 100%, Location: Port Leyden, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 182881961299 Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock Click images to enlarge Description Here is a complete and running "Adamantine" finish 8 day time and strike mantle clock made by the Seth Thomas Clock Co. in Thomaston, Connecticut. It has the reddish brown Adamantine finish that was very popular during the early 1900's and was probably designed to simulate either rosewood or marble. This is a rather uniquely styled variation of the more common style of 1920's clocks, somewhat rare to find and actively sought after by collectors. It has a nice old solid brass bezel and painted dial assembly, which is in amazingly good shape for its age. This clock features a signed Seth Thomas #89 movement, which has been cleaned and serviced and is in good running condition, keeping time and striking properly, counting the hour, i.e. 1 gong at 1:00, 2 gongs at 2:00, etc., on an antique cathedral gong and announcing each half hour with a single bell chime. It is a super quality movement that, if properly maintained, should last indefinitely. As noted, this is an Adamantine finish clock. Adamantine is a Seth Thomas patented laminate finish from the late 1800's. As with most Adamantine finish clocks, you may see a little shrinkage at the corners and edges as well some age cracking, scuffs and light denting here and there, which is the nature of the Adamantine finish. It is a thin laminate so shrinks and cracks over time and dents fairly easily. It is complete with a key and the original pendulum and is ready to place up on the mantle and enjoy. The measurements are 17" wide x 9 ¾" high x 6" deep. Payment If your payment needs to be delayed, that will be fine as long as you stay in close contact with us, and send it when you say you're going to. We accept Paypal, plus others. Any payment that requires time to process (clear) will delay shipping. Email us with questions concerning other forms of payment. Shipping Most clocks will be shipped within 5 business days of received payment. We like to give each clock sold a final test run and observation before packing. This helps insure that the new owner will have a satifying experience. All items are carefully packaged with around 1 1/2" of packing material between your purchase and the box. All items are shipped insured. We never anticipate damage but in the event that an incident occurs, we will help with insurance claims as much as possible. Be very sure to save all packaging material if there is a problem. Normally, all shipping costs are based on actual price for estimated weight plus a minimal fee for packaging material and insurance. In rare instances there may be a flat rate shipping price quoted. Smaller items can be combined to save shipping costs. Because clocks require large boxes, priority mail is expensive. We quote Fedex prices in most cases. ***For any shipments other than the lower 48 United States contact us first for a shipping quote before bidding. Do not go by the shipping calculator. Terms of Sale All sales are final, (with the exception noted below). We try to keep an excellent feedback rating by being fair and honest. We try to describe all items accurately so that you pretty much know exactly what to expect when your purchase arrives. It should be understood before bidding that all antique clocks, unless otherwise noted, have knicks, scratches, tarnished brass, stains and dents which are normally aquired from long term honest use. It is nearly impossible to find one in "mint" condition. If a clock has damage from misuse, it will be noted. If a clock is sold as "in running condition", it means that we have test ran it before listing it and feel confident that it will run for you. If a clock is running properly when it arrives,... thats about the best we can do. We cannot guarantee that a clock will not break down, but will not sell anything that we expect to break down without noting that it is being sold as parts or for restoration. In the event that you are not happy, please first go back and read the description to make sure that the item was not misrepresented, and then email us. If we missed seeing some hidden damage, we will refund your money, both purchase price and shipping both ways. ***This does NOT include items sold as parts, not working or "as is"*** All sales for this type of item are final. About Us My daughter and I are collector/restorers and have been working together selling online since 2005. We spend quite a bit of time traveling around the northeast buying clocks and clock parts and many times we are able to buy large quantities from clock makers or clock dealers who are downsizing, or closing out altogether. I have been a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors since 1978 and restoring clocks since 1976 so you can buy from us with confidence. Contact Us You may notice that since joining Ebay in 2000 our feedback has been positive. We only receive feedback about a third of the time which means we have actually had several thousand positive transactions over the past 10 years that are not recorded in the feedback system. We would prefer not to deal with anyone who might consider leaving us a negative feedback. We try to describe everything exactly as it is and if we do something wrong, we will make it right. That being said, rather than give us a bad feedback, first give us a chance to return your money. If you email us on Saturday it may not be until Monday before you hear back from us. We do not use our computers on Sunday, the Lord's day, but will answer any emails Monday through Saturday and do whatever we can to resolve any problems. Please do not wait until late in an auction to ask questions. (We may not be here)****Also, please do not ask us to falsify shipping records for international shipping.
