Seth Thomas Ogee Clock
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.
