Here are a couple more gems that I found in my pick'n ventures.  The Seth Thomas Tambour mantel clock is beautiful and in the midst of being repaired (waiting for parts). The cabinet is in exceptional condition.  It has such a lovely Westminster chime to it.  It chimes on both the hour and half hour.  Once on the half hour and to each hour.  I love when it gets to the 6 o'clock hour.

This is a Franz Hermle Staunton 2W and although gorgeous, it's not extremely old.  I believe this clock was given to an employee as an anniversary gift by a timber company years ago.  This clock has that true "chime" that goes off only once per hour.  I love how you can see the intricacy of the gears and movements.  All I need for this one is the key, lol.
