I am so happy to finally add this 1860's Seth Thomas #1 Extra to my clock collection. I have been trying to get one of these for years and they always got bid up ridiculously high. Persistence finally paid off and I purchased this beautiful specimen at auction in Iowa. I am glad I did not buy that last #1 I had or I never would have gotten this one, Comprising an original finished rosewood case with octagonal top containing an original 14 inch painted metal dial with black Roman hour numerals and long drop with original reverse painted and gold leaf tablet, a good paper label and pendulum. It also has great provenance, inside the case is a picture of the actual school house it hung in and a note dated 1937 talking about the clock and its previous owner. If anyone has anything to add about this clock I would welcome it.
