    I am trying to identify the age and ballpark value of this Seth Thomas table clock. I haven't been able to find anything similar on the internet. I got it from my grandfather's estate. It is VERY heavy. Appears to be made of solid quartz or marble. The metal plate on the back reads:
    FOR OPERATION ONLY ON
    ALTERNATING CURRENT OF
    115 VOLTS "60" CYC., 2 W.,
    MOV'T No. "[can't read it]" CAT. No. "3684"
    U.S. PAT 1.933.591
    SETH THOMAS CLOCKS THOMASTON, CONN
    A DIVISION OF GENERAL TIME INSTRUMENTS CORP
    The items in quotes are stamped onto the plate.

    The clock is exactly 18 cm tall x 14 cm wide x 6 cm thick
    (About 7.25 inches tall x about 5.5 inches wide x 2.375 inches thick).

    Made in the USA.

    Thank you

      Your clock is a Seth Thomas "Durango," made ca. 1931. The material is onyx. According to Stein (20th Century Modern Clocks), its value is around $150 in excellent condition. The rust/wear on the bezel will bring the value of this clock down some.

      The catalog # (3684) is for the movement only (which was available in various versions of Seth Thomas cases).
