This is a Seth Thomas Shelf clock. It runs for eight days, is chime and strike, and dates from the 1890s.
In most cases, this would be considered a mantel clock. The term ‘shelf clock’ is not commonly used, often associated with early nineteenth century American clocks from New England. However, I tend to refer to clocks with a more vertical nature as shelf clocks to distinguish them from the traditional parabolic mantel clocks. And I dislike the term ‘table clock.’
American clocks are rare in our collection, but any respectable clock collector in the United States is going to have a Seth Thomas or two. The Seth Thomas company innovated the mass production of clocks in the nineteenth century. However, Seth Thomas clocks were well built and maintain a quality and reliability above the average mass produced American clock dating from the same era.
