    This is a circa 1910 Seth Thomas "Meditation" clock. It is gold plated with a bronze case, a porcelain face, and has an 8 day movement. The movement is the 89H. This clock chimes on the half hour. Dimensions: 12"h x 9"w x 6"d.

    I found this at a thrift shop covered in dust. I bought it for $130 marked down from $200. I feel i got a deal but can't find any comparisons without having to pay a subscription. So if anyone can tell me if I did good or bad it will put my mind at ease.

    Any information other than what I have said. I wish to learn all I can about this clock.

      Per an old clock book I have, your Seth Thomas is named: MEDITATION
      circa 1904
      Two Descriptions; yours is the second:

      8-Day, Height, 11-1/2 inches; base, 8-1/2 inches, Jap Bronze with Gold Panel.
      Gold Dial with Porcelain Numerals. No Sash or Glass. A new ornamental idea.
      Winding arbors piped to prevent dust getting in movement.
      Price, $9.50

      Also made in rich gold, Syrian and verde antique finishes, with porcelain dials. French sash and beveled glass.
      Price, $11.50

      Hope this helps,
      Dave
