Anybody recognize this one?
Metronome de Maelzel, (Paris, Amerique, Belgigue, France, Hollande, Angleterre), by Seth Thomas. In our family since before 1955 (approx.). We know for sure it was in our family after 1947, however, that does not mean the Metronome was made after 1947. It may have been made before then.
We saw online a copy of a 1951 ad for this style metronome. Could be the same. Just don't know.
It works. Some crazing on wood finish, but overall, wood in good shape. Inside is in very good shape. We do not know if it is mahogany wood, or a mahogany stain over another type wood.
There is #909 at the bottom of the instruction sheet attached to the inside of the front panel/cover. Also, there is C1 (stamped/engraved) into the wood of the bottom of the metronome.
