    Hello toolate2: There's Probably another out there. No Bruce here. Sorry!!
    I'm glad you like it. Do you happen to know anything about it???

    Bruce99 is the hands down clock expert on this site. I was appealing to him on your behalf. I'm thinking it's a nice Adamantine Seth Thomas from around 1880-1890.... Here's a link: http://clockhistory.com/sethThomas/products/adamantine/index.html
    Does it run?

    Thank's scottscuff. I'll try to find some markings on it.

    The dial says Seth Thomas. I see no reason to think the dial has been replaced...

    Hi Folks! I've been working on my Honey-Do list! Seems I've been really slacking off lately :D

    Scott, you're right in that Seth Thomas and Ingraham can have a similar style of foot and bezel on their mantle clocks. A dead give away for an Ingraham is the regulator disk that you access through the dial and turn with a finger or thumb. It's a horizontal slot located between the "12" and the center of the dial and it is a dead give-away for an Ingraham mantel clock because because no other clock manufacturer made their movements that way. I'm sure Ingraham had a patent on it and it is really a nice feature.

    Toolate2, as usual, you're absolutely correct! Musikchoo's clock is a Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantel clock. Consulting my handy-dandy Reference book I see that it is a model called the "Sussex" from circa 1900 (probably give or take 10 years). Described as: Wood case, adamantine finish. Bronzed metal feet. Eight-day, half-hour strike. Cathedral bell. 5-inch dial. Height, 10 3/4 inches. Base, 11 1/2 inches (including the feet). Ly appraised a mint, original example at $300 in 2005.

    I haven't seen them come up very often on eBay or elsewhere.

    The only one I have in my records was an eBay auction:
    Ended: Jan 09, 201111:10:22 PST
    Winning bid: US $122.50 [ 25 bids ]
    Shipping: $40.00 USPS Priority Mail
    Seller: Member id danielsober
    Item number: 150542575524

    I would say that it was in good condition but in need of service.

    They are neat little clocks. Be careful with the Adamantine finish. It ages well but it is a relatively soft material that scratches easily. Don't use anything really abrasive on it.

    Well, back to that list or I'll be losing my internet privileges! LOL!

    The pendelum is also very ornate. If you plan on transporting it make sure to take the pendelum off the hook. Thats how I found out how beautiful it was. Mine has a garden scen to it

    Musikchoo; Thank you for puttng a picture of your clock up. I took a very bright flashlight and a magnifying glass and checked mine over . I was able to read the label on the back. Mine is a Rival from The E. Ingrham Co. It has the regulator disc just below the 12, mine also has a gold face. W/ 3 patent dates on the last one is of Aug 11 1888
