Ship's Bell Clock. Seth Thomas Clock Company of Thomaston, Connecticut.

This is a good example of a “Ship’s Bell Clock” which was manufactured by the Seth Thomas Clock Company of Thomaston, Connecticut. The case is brass and retains an older oxidize patina. It is mounted on to a wooden backboard. The bezel is also brass and is fitted with a piece of glass. This is hinged on the left side of the case. This indicates that it is an early example of this model. It appears in the catalog as early as 1884 and this design was made until 1921. The double wind time and strike movement is brass construction and is die-stamped by the Maker on the front plate. It is spring wound and is designed to run thirty hours on a full wind. This clock strikes the hour in “Military Time.” Military time is a four hour sequence striking as many as eight repetitions. The Roman numeral dial measures 6 inches in diameter. Here you will find the Maker’s name and trademark. This clock was made circa 1890 and measures approximately 10.5 inches in length.
