The history behind this clock is unlike any other. French clocks became popular in the United States, except these clocks were slate, onyx, or marble and were expensive. However, the American clock manufactures decided to produce similar looking clocks to the French made clocks for a much cheaper price. This was able to be done because the cases were made of iron or wood instead of slate, onyx, or marble. These particular clocks have been known as Black Mantel Clocks and were in high demand from 1880-1931. Seth Thomas started making these clocks and started with marble clocks but eventually switched to iron or wood for American’s could save money. This is how the clock brand has gotten its name, through hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
