This is a beautiful example of a catalin Seth Thomas alarm clock. Runs very well, and keep fairly accurate time for its age & type. Fully functional and complete. The appearance of the clock is exceptional. We've left it in an unpolished condition, giving the new owner the choice of whether to polish or not. The catalin has no problems; it's free of chips, cracks, and burns. If you look at the bottom you can get a hint of how it would look polished. All in all a wonderful clock!
