Here is a Seth Thomas “Adamantine” clock with black and green marbleized finish (Adamantine is Seth Thomas’ patented celluloid finish that was made in many colors to imitate wood and marble). It strikes the hours on two brass bells, and strikes the half hour on the higher pitched bell. The clock was sold on March 22, 1916 (22 March 1916 is written on the label on the back cover). My customer’s grandparents received this clock as a wedding gift from family members in June 1916.
The case is 18 1/8 inches wide at feet, 11 1/16 inches tall, with 4 1/4 inch time track on dial.
