Seth Thomas Clocks
Catalog No. 780
19 West 44th Street, New York
This is truly one of our most amazing and rare catalogs. 1928 was the first year that Seth Thomas introduced their line of Electric Clocks. This Catalog has them....
.... as well as Westminster Chime Clocks, Ships Bell, Metal, Cabinet, Desk, Boudoir, Wall, and even Automobile Clocks, and many more.
Seth Thomas was born in Wolcott, Connecticut in 1785 and went to work for clockmaker Eli Terry in 1807. In 1810, he bought out Terry’s factory (together with Silas Hoadley), and in December 1813 bought out Heman Clark’s clock-making business in Plymouth Hollow, (renamed Thomaston in his honor in 1865.)
Mr. Thomas died in 1859, but his sons continued to develop many new styles of clocks. Regulator clocks were introduced in 1860. Spring driven clocks were introduced ca. 1855–1860. Perpetual calendar clocks were made from ca. 1863–1917.
Some of the most popular later types include walnut kitchen clocks, made from 1884–1909; marble clocks, 1887–ca. 1895; black (Adamantine finish) wood mantel clocks, ca. 1885–1917; black enameled iron cased clocks, 1892–ca. 1895; oak kitchen clocks, 1890–ca. 1915; tambour clocks, introduced in 1904; chime clocks, introduced in 1909; and electric A/C clocks, introduced in 1928.
Clocks from 1881 to 1918 have an interesting date code stamped in ink on the case back or bottom. Usually, the year is done in reverse, followed by a letter A–L representing the month. An example of this would be a date of May 1898 would appear as 8981E.
Catalog includes over One Hundred Twenty different Clock Models.
