Seth Thomas Adamantine Clocks
Faux Marble Mantle Clocks made ca.1900
Veneered with an early use of celluloid over wood, these uniquely American clocks were intended to imitate the expensive French imports of the last quarter of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century. They were made by Seth Thomas in Thomaston, Connecticut and employ a thin marbleized layer of early plastic over poplar or pine. This was to appear like genuine marble or slate but at a far less cost. These clocks are rugged, run very well, and this faux finish gave it a durability to minor scratches and dents. They are 8-day, key wind pendulum clocks and gong at the hour.
- All these clocks have been refurbished by an outside company, are running well and are guaranteed by The Clockfolk. They are priced at less than $800.00 each, and measure approximately:
16″ wide x 11″ tall x 7″ deep
