I can not find a date stamp on this one. According to history it might be pre-1920's. If anyone has any info I would appreciate it!

Mystery Solved

    This looks like a Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantel clock model named "Shasta" ca 1911.

    Thanks Bruce! 1911 would be close. This is a family piece. Story is that it was a gift to my grandmother when my father was born in 1917. But I never could find a date stamp on it so was not sure about the story.

    You're welcome JTWLaw! I'm glad that those dates make sense with the family timeline for this heirloom. There is another Seth Thomas model named "Sucile" ca 1904 which looks a lot like your clock except it has a simulated red mahogany finish. You may also see a black mantel clock with an undulating, serpentine top which is often misidentified as a Shasta. It is a Seth Thomas Larkin Soap Model 35. The Shasta has a simulated brown onyx finish like yours. I think they called it Brazilian Onyx. It's really a sharp looking Seth Thomas. Enjoy! They look great and their hourly strike with the half-hour bell has a really a nice sound too.
    Best regards.

    This is a 1915 New Shasta, look on ebay this week for it. I have one on that is restored (and a picture out of the Tran Du Ley book). It is one beautiful clock when restored.

    No, you're wrong. If you took a minute to read this posting you would have seen that this clock is a "Shasta", not a "New Shasta" segue of misinformation into the clock you're trying to sell on eBay. Also, if you would read you would know that this forum is not for selling. The terms clearly state that Show & Tell is "not for selling. Please don’t post items for sale… if we see for-sale listings, even non-commercial ones, we’ll remove them. We reserve the right to remove any content we deem inappropriate for any reason."

    Good luck with your listing but please try to get your facts right and don't peddle your clocks here.

    It may seem like I was a little harsh on estatesale0...let's just say that I've done business with him, and once was enough...besides he was clearly trying to use C.W. to generate interest in his live auction. At least this mystery was officially solved! :)
