(1) the heavy French clock (note top is NOT attached) has an old patina, darkened silvered dial, and good beveled convex glass. Its movement, signed "M.S." strikes on a bell, ticks and strikes, Ht 13 1/2"; (2) The Seth Thomas case has a nice smooth original finish, signed silvered dial with a bit of brass showing through, and applied brass numerals. Its balance wheel #125 round movement strikes on a gong, Ht 8" (3) This is a cute and nicely made reproduction, although the plywood back would appear better if painted black or stained dark. The door glass needs to be secured in place. The movement, with old fancy pendulum, ticks but was not tested long term. Dial is signed paper; hands could be improved. Ht 19 1/2"; (4) like new
