This is a clock my husband's stepfather gave us for our first Christmas present. I would love to know more about the history of this clock. Just from internet searches I came up with the title, but I am not sure if it is correct.

    In what year did you receive it as a gift? Was it new or used at that time? If used, do you know if everything is original to the clock? Are there any labels on the case?

    I can't help you on a date, but those numbers do have a Art Deco style to them to my eye. I love It's clean & uncluttered design.

    Cool clock!

    Hi,
    This seems to be a late American Seth Thomas wall clock. At a guess it looks 1940's. Very unusual and good luck with it!

    This is an historic clock of sorts. Mass produced mainly for school rooms in many cities, from c.1940 - 1941, it was one of Seth Thomas' last regulator clocks. Following the war, they resumed clock making using electric movements. There are a couple similar models, all with the characteristic deco numbers, and hands, and oak wood. A particularly unusual version of this clock is a post war electric version, minus the pendulum box (square) made briefly, right after WW II, apparently using materials left over from this model. It appears on the wall of "Mr Smiths" office, in the 1950 movie "Obligations" found on the Prelinger archives site.
