Hello Fellow Collectors. The last photo was from the Ebay listing and description read:
DISNEYANA BAYARD PLUTO ALARM CLOCK - WALT DISNEY COMPANY
Estate Sale - Used, broken glass, has some spots, non-working alarm clock. Sold as is and for parts or restoration.
Buy It Now or Make An Offer.
Well I made an offer of $22 and it was quickly accepted. I figured pieces and parts would be worth that. :-). It arrived today and I opened it up, removed a sliver of glass from movement and it began to tick, so I gave it a couple drops of clock oil in the pivots, replaced the glass and reassembled in case. Working great and all in all not bad Animated feature clock for less than 25 bucks. I can deal with the small flaw in the dial for that, lol
This is a Bayard 1964 Animated Pluto Alarm, where the head of Pluto rocks back and forth as the seconds click off(commonly known as a "Nodder" )
Thanks for looking and hope the photos do it justice, after short overhaul.
