Seth Thomas Medbury 5W Chiming Mantel Clock

Post by koimaster » September 10th 2019, 8:27am

Here’s a Seth Thomas chiming mantel clock that I repaired. It was made in 1951. The model name is Medbury 5W, the movement date is August 1951 (date code 5108), and the instruction label inside the back door has the date December 1951 (date code 5112).

This clock has a mahogany case, a 6 1/2 inch dial, and plays quarter-hour Westminster chimes. The clock is 19 15/16 inches wide, 9 5/16 inches tall, and the minute hand is 3 3/32 inches long from center to tip. ... 415-1.html

Ive had this Seth Thomas for quite a few years. Picked it up at an estate sale for $12! Cashier thought it was mismarked but let it go. Electric but what the hay, a Seth Thomas.

Love that chimer. Love to have one, have had a cheapie since the 80s, swear the cat could tell time from it for food and going outside.

Not mine but a good description. ... -492384274

On my phone stand with my brass candlestick phone. Both work, well at least the phone did until the switch to digital.
