This clock/lamp has been in my family since I was a little boy about 60 some years ago. I would love to know more about it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    What you have there is a very desireable piece art deco in its truest form.This is ,I believe, Frankart.I could not find this particular piece but I found another using what I think is the same statue.
    This piece is especially appealing because it is pure art deco attracting art deco collectors,while also attracting clock collectors and lamp collectors(such as myself).This is the piece that makes me stare,nose pressed up against the glass drooling on the verge of ODing on true brilliance!!!!!Oh yeah and it's quite pretty too.

    BTW the link shows a newer casting of this lamp.Yours looks to be from the early 1900s probably 1920s or 30s.

    It says "Hammond pat " on the back. Hammond made clocks from 1928 - 1941. That seems to fit

    It would help if you could tell us all of the writing, front and back. GREAT clock/lamp!

    Thank you to everyone on their helpful comments. The only writing is on the plate on the back of the clock: START-Push In; Turn left & let go; SET-Turn right or left.

    Made in USA; Manufactured under Hammond Pat. No. 1719805 - others pend,

    A clock Patent was issued to Lauren Hammond of Winneika, Ill on July 2, 1929. The patent was assigned to the Hammond Clock Co of Chicago, Ill. A design patent for a clock base like yours was issued on March 15, 1932 to George H Stephens of Northbrook, Ill and was assigned to the Hammond Clock Co.
