Exquisite 19th century gilded Seth Thomas mantle clock, possibly 8000 series but not sure. Would appreciate any info. Beautiful hand-painted, floral porcelain face with no cracks or chips, encased in a round beveled glass bezel. The gilding, over heavy cast metal, is in excellent condition. The mechanism, a near-silent 8-day movement, performs flawlessly. The clock strikes a deep resounding tone on the hour and half hour. This clock rung in the New Year 2013 at our house! If anyone can shed any light on the this particular model, we would sure appreciate it!
