The 1935-36 GE Model 4F58 “Lotus” originally sold for $9.95 (I paid $60), it is 6 X 6.5 X 3 inches and has chrome plated metal base in the shape of a lotus leaf set on a black plastic base. The dial is heavy plate glass mirror with a “black Lyco” finish. The numerals and center are etched in cream enamel by a special photographic process. A base MAZDA bulb lamp lights the clock through the bottom edge. It was designed by Raymond E Patten, 10,295 were sold according to Electrifying Time by Jim Linz

The clock works and keeps time, however it is need of a $29 rotor overhaul which I ordered yesterday and will replace when it arrives. The photographic process numerals are chipped off a little around the top of the clock the glass and black foreground are still there, but will be restored. The bump out that the light switch is on is cracked a little.
