    Hello,

    I have picked up another Seth Thomas Clock and would love to know roughly when it was Manufactured. The movement is stamped "S. Thomas Plymouth Conn USA".

    I am thinking with the Plymouth Movement and the Line/Square Minute Marks that it's possibly a 1860-65 clock. Sadly the label has been all but lost through the years. I spent a day cleaning dirt out of the case. It had spent most of it's long life in a cellar, but now it has a good home above ground once again.

    Any ideas, observations, or information is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Update: Height is 25 1/8" from top to bottom and the Width is 14 3/4" at the base.

      Hey Tennessee. Nice clock. What are the case measurements?

      "Column" circa 1866. Perhaps a Rosewood veneered case. Probably assembled shortly after the American Civil War. The tablet design, if original, would fit the period.

      Thanks Bruce, I'm going to have to get me one of those books here soon.

      @scottvez, I know! That's what sold me on it too. :)

      So does that solve your mystery Tennessee?

      Tran Du Ly is the author of a whole series of clock reference books. If you are going into serious clock collecting, it helps to have access. He is retiring soon and is offering his books at discounted prices. Search the net for Arlington Books which is his publishing company. Regards

      I recently inherited a clock that is identical to this one, except for the painted glass design. The weights were not attached when I got the clock. I'm not sure how to install them because one is larger and heavier than the other. Otherwise they are identical. Anyone know which weight would be for the time keeping mechanism versus the chimes?

      it was made between 1855 and 1860 the dial is metal with rings drawn around the minute marks and dots for the minute marks .arg. that dial was in use from 1855-1860
