Hello, I purchased this cute little clock from local flea marcket. It is 7.25" tall and time only. Please let me know the model number and the dating. Any info about the clock will be very appreciated.

Hello Ming,

Nobody is responding because we can't find your clock in the standard book (Seth Thomas Clocks and Movements, Tran Duy Ly, Third Edition, Vol 2, Arlington Books).

However, it is in the "Mantle Clocks-Metal Novelty" category described as having a one-day, lever, time only movement with a two-inch dial. The cases are cast metal with a "gold ormolu finish". Seth Thomas made dozens of different models of these but yours does not match any in the book.

Of the clocks illustrated, the early ones are 1900 while the latest date I found was 1908. The dates refer to the catalogue date in which the clock appeared.

Jim, Thank you so much for your help. It is good to know the period of the production. After put the clock in beat, the clock is ticking away. Thank you again for taking your time to help.
