Seth Thomas clock with 639 on back on paper. Front has nest with snake

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Black veneer I believe is what it is. Large mantel clock I would think with 639 and 28 on the back paper

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I believe that is all I know. The clock has been in all family for all God would know.
