The GE Warren "Executive" Telechron Bakelite Art Deco Clock Model 8B02 from 1933, cool little clock. It lights up so you could see what time it is at night. The motor is in excellent shape, hummmms quietly along and the MAZDA bulb works.
Designed by Edgar Bourquin, the telechron is bedecked with stylized thisle, or dandelion blossoms and leaves on the front panel along with a geometric diamond on the top front facet and each side (although worn, see top in first picture). It has Has the power interuption indicator. The cord is in sorry shape, but the plug is in great shape. I did plug it in when I got it to see if it ran, it did and have since restored and replaced the fiber wrapped cord, the plug is original to the clock.
Company ad copy for this "NEW TYPE Handless Clock" reads
"Today's busy executive now has a clock that talks his own language! His time tables, appointments, cards, and cost sheets read in numerals, as '10:45',' 6:27'. This clock tells time the same way, by giving him the exact second of the hour at all times with unvarying accuracy by means of changing numerals."
I thought the exact second blurb was a little strange because the seconds run from 60 to 1, not 1 to 60.
