Seth Thomas Ogee Clock

 

 

Seth Thomas 30 hr. Clock

A good example of a 30 hr. Seth Thomas hourly strike clock, circa 1845.

Ogee Wall Clock.  Mahogany veneer case.  Brass 30 hour, weight-driven movement with strike.  Made by Seth Thomas, Plymouth Hollow, Conn., c. 1845. H. 26 1/2.” This was a popular model before the Civil War. The glass that covered the pendulum and strike hammer and coil below the clock face was hand painted.  These were very loud clocks with a rapid strike marking the hour.  There are many still around today,  but it is rarer to find them with the painted glass in the original and unblemished condition.
