Before and after shots of a strange clock I pulled out of a box of rubish. It is model #270 manufactured by the Gilbratar Electric Clock Co. (Sessions).
The clock had it's electric motor still intact, but it was shot. It looked like the clock had been partially submerged in water at one time. Me also being a windmill nut, besides a clock nut, found it to be the best of both worlds to me. I removed the electrical motor and replaced it with a quartz movement. At it's tallest point (the upper windmill blades it is 13 inches tall and 11 inches wide. Probably dates from the late 30's to the early 40's. It sits overlooking my home office area on a tall bookcase. One man's junk...

    Well, this clock does rather look Dutch to me...windmills and so...
    It has the same style as a lamp I have tried to buy on ebay.
    price went up to much for me... didn't buy it.
