This clock's case is made of Bakelite, in almost perfect condition except for one nibble on the front left corner (see left hand corner of the first picture). The clock is in original condition down to the fiber wrapped cord which is slowly coming undone, the outer brown fiber wrap is disintegrating. It was being sold for parts, the eBay vendor was afraid to plug it in, when I received it and plugged it in it still worked.

It is 5.5 inches wide, 7.25 inches high and 3.5 inches deep. The 3 inch dial is finished in silver with black numeral and hands, the second hand is finished in gold.

Not bad for a 85 year old clock.

From the Telechron Home Page
"The 355 was Telechron's first star. Someone got the bright idea of making a clock people could actually afford and it took off. This the was most imitated Telechron ever; every electric clock company who was anybody had a cathedral-design."
