This Seth Thomas “Tambour No. 19” mantel clock was made about 1913. This beautiful clock has an octagon shaped wooden bezel, and a brass dial with printed numerals. It uses a Seth Thomas No. 120 movement, which is a round 8-day movement with hour and half-hour strike. The striking is on a coil gong with a particularly full and resonant sound (see video below).
The case is 19.5 inches wide and 7 15/16 inches tall; and the brass dial has a 4.5 inch wide dial minute track.
The dial is labeled:
MADE IN U.S.A.
