SETH THOMAS OAK SCHOOLHOUSE. Seth Thomas Oak Schoolhouse. Ht. 21"This was one of his first clocks and the case was painted white. Spending many hours on redoing the case it is now a beautiful golden oak color. The dial is as good as you will ever find on a Seth Thomas Clock. Excellent label, tablet and hands. Part of the Geneva stop work is missing which does not affect the running of the clock. This was one of his first restorations in his early collecting period. dial - 8.5""We are pleased to have a very unusual collection of clocks to present at this auction. They come from one outstanding 40 year collection numbering in the hundreds of clocks. The consignor is selling duplicates and some early examples when he first began collecting. What is unusual about the collection is the condition. He was always interested in original Tablets even on the inexpensive clocks. No matter what the value of the clock all were chosen for their originality. All clock movements were fully reconditioned and then not run to preserve them. A few may need cleaning as they were done forty years ago. All Tablets are original with some having minor restoration except for two that were among his first clocks. All Dials are original to the clock; some having very minor restoration. The Cases have been carefully reconditioned - any veneer chips have been repaired without disturbing the rest of the old or original finish. Most of these repairs will not be evident without very close inspection." 14.5"W x 22"H x 4.5"D. Estimated Value$250 - 350.
