    I don't really know anything about this clock except it was my fathers. it seems to be made of brass and is fairly heavy. I tried to find one online to see how old it might be but could not.

      I tried searching seth Thomas with various dates. Try a few various sites and search engines and you should find a match eventually. Looks 1920s or earlier.

      Your father's clock is a model called the "Duke" from circa 1909. It's described as an 8-day hour and half-hour strike, 4 1/2" porcelain dial. It came in "Bronze" or "Verde" finishes with five gold-plated top ornaments. Height, 13 inches. Originally listed for $18.00 which would be the equivalent of about $470 in 2015.

      Thank You so much for helping find out the name of the clock. I am not sure why mine has a black coating, i think the brass looks beautiful and might try and find a clock restorer to see what they think to remove the paint over the brass or if it was built this way.
