This unusual desk clock was assembled from scrap wood and aircraft plexiglass. Overall the piece is 14" long and about 5 1/2" tall.
An Army Air Corps aircraft clock has been set into the base and rotates around. A crew member wing has been applied above the clock.
The other section has wood and plexiglass that together form the early Army Air Corps aircraft roundel symbol.
When seen up close the wood and plastic shows appropriate age patina to confirm it dates from the early part of WW2.
This is just the type of thing that I would have expected to see in a stateside Army Air Corps training base office at the beginning of WW2.
