Dear Mr. Bradley,
For me Christmas Eve 2001 will always hold many
warm and kind memories. When UPS rang my doorbell on December 24th I had
no idea of the pleasant surprise that awaited me. The feelings I experienced
will be thoughts that I will have for life, and for that gift I thank you.
I also want to thank you for remembering your promise and for the clock
itself. Nothing you could say in your advertising could adequately describe
the quality, attention to detail, and pride in craftsmanship this clock
exhibits. It is everything and more than described in your promotional
literature. The quality is second to none. I know that someday a Bradley
Clock will command a higher hammer price than any Seth on the auction block.
You and Matt have succeeded in producing a museum quality reproduction;
not a single detail has gone unnoticed. The wood. joinery, and quality
of the dial are tremendous. The dial has top quality screening and
until the dial is touched one would almost believe it is porcelain.
I am proud to prominently display your clock among my Seth Thomas collection
of antique drop octagons, #2's, Worlds and Globes. It belongs in the collection
and if it weren't for the shiny brass one would be hard pressed to tell
the difference. Bradley Woodworks has provided the public an opportunity
to own an antique without the problems of first having to find one and
then having to get it restored and running.
Again, many, many kind thanks and I wish you every
