    Default Seth Thomas 3 weight tall clock

    I am trying to identify the movement in my Seth Thomas three weight tall clock. The works were purchased in Cleaveland Ohio in the late 1800, or early 1900s. The cabinet was built by another person. The clock is cable driven with a moon dial and behind the face on the frame is stamped Made in USAmerica. Also ST in a little box and the number 592. The clock is an 8 day clock with Quarter strike Westminster Chimes and the hour on cathedral bell. The three weights are (L-R) 11 1/2lb 2 1/2lb and 10lb. It sounds very much like a No. 74B but the weights don't match a rightup I have about that model. Is the 592 in any way a model number or a serial number. I would like to know what model works the clock has, and when the works were built. Thank you for any information you could help me with.

    In Tran duy Ly's "Long Case Clocks and Standing Regulators" Part 1, there is a side view of ST movement #74C. The movement is mounted on a cast iron bracket, chimes on a nest of four bells and beats out the hours on a "cathedral bell" which is not included in the picture but it's hammer is shown.

    Some pictures of your clock and its movement would help a whole lot Yozydog.
