Sonora Clock Company - 9 Bell Chime

This is a real collectors clock. This clock was made by the Sonora Clock Company in the states. This company was purchased by the Seth Thomas Company early in the 1900's. It was the model I presume for the beautiful Sonora Chime clocks produced by Seth Thomas later on. This clock has nine nested bells that play a tune on the quarter, half and full hours. The crank handle on the side is used to wind the music cylinder inside the clock.
