Seth Thomas Clocks

 

Seth Thomas (1785-1859) began his clockmaking career in 1807 as an apprentice to renowned clockmaker Eli Terry. In 1810, he bought Terry’s Connecticut factory and started making tall clocks with wooden movements. Brass movements replaced wooden ones in 1842 (wood was phased out entirely in 1845), which was also the first year that Thomas made mantel clocks with ogee cases a practice that continued until 1913. In the 20th century, Thomas introduced its first tambour clock in 1904. The low, full profile of these mantel clocks made them perfect above fireplaces. Chime clocks followed in 1909, and electric clocks were added to the company’s catalog in 1928.

This Seth Thomas Mantel Clock is for local pick up or can be shipped within the continental US for $85.00.
