Antique Clocks/mantle clock


I have a Seth Thomas mantle clock. The date on the bottom plate is September, 1881. There is something that looks like a second hand but it does not move. What is it please? The clock works fine.

I have not seen a Seth Thomas clock made in that era with a second hand or anything that may look like one.  It sounds like this part may have been added somewhere between 1881 and now.
Check on Ebay and see is someone has one listed similar to yours and see if it may have the same part.
