Fluted central section is mahogany with maple(?) end pieces. Paper label on base states "Sole Manufacturers and Distributors: M. M. Gottlieb Associates, Inc., Allentown, Pa." The case was likely designed by Moritz M. Gottlieb as well, but I haven't been able to find a patent. This clock uses a rotating disk type movement patented by Frederick A. Greenawalt in 1942. That movement was also used in the very collectible catalin cased clocks made by Winslow. Moritz Gottlieb designed a "Radio Clock" in 1940 that also used a Greenawalt designed movement, the same one used in Pennwood/Numechron clocks and some GE cyclometer clocks.
