Tonight I thought I'd bring back Roy Rogers riding Trigger across the painted desert. This "animated" style alarm clock features Roy rocking back and forth as the escape wheel turns to depict him riding along. These were produced by E. Ingraham in 1951. A little tid-bit note, this same style clock could be found in a Canadian model, the background was snow and forest scene with the same rider, titled "The Westerner".
These clocks are simple no jewel, manual wound movement, but after 63 years, they still tick-tock and rock back and forth, still to the amazement of my grandchildren.
Thanks for looking and "Happy Trails"
