Description:

Seth Thomas Eight-bell "Sonora Chime" Mantel Clock, Thomaston, Connecticut, c. 1920, mahogany and satin wood inlaid case, with a 6-in. silvered Arabic numeral dial marked Sonora Chime, stepped molded base, and brass bun feet, eight-day time and quarter, half, and hour strike movement, playing Whittington or Westminster chimes on eight bells, ht. 14 3/4 in.

Provenance: Terry and Karen Brotherton.
Estimate $800-1,200

clock does have the original "S" pendulum bob, chime movement not aligned with dial winding hole (original but needs adjustment). The clock ticks, strikes, and chime mechanism can be manually tripped and does function. We do recommend all clocks be cleaned and lubricated. Old alligator finish.
