Description
Seth Thomas Sonora chimes mantle clock. C.1910, Seth Thomas Clock Co., Chime Clock No. 1" ,4 bell Sonora chime mantel clock, in generally good condition. The adamantine mahogany finish is in very good condition. This model which usually came with a silvered dial has the optional original porcelain dial. The hands are original. The clock retains its original brass ball feet and the original gilt columns. Large case is 13.5" high, 15" wide, 7 deep. 14 pds. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Collection. The name Sonora”comes from the Sonora Chime Company. William Hoschke of New York, New York applied for his patent on this design on April 16, 1907, and the patent was granted on April 18, 1908. Hoschke apparently had a background with music box engineering that he utilized in his design of the Sonora configuration. Seth Thomas purchased the rights to Hoschkes bell chime mechanism and resonators patent around 1912, changed the movements to suit their own manufacturing techniques and successfully marketed a full line of Sonora clocks with numerous models and configurations. The unique, rich, resonant sound of Sonora bell chimes comes from the wooden expansive sound chamber in which the cup bells are mounted. They are struck with leather-tipped hammers.Ref: Ly-Seth Thomas, page 212. 300-400 . 13.5" high, 15" wide, 7 deep. 14 pds
