This rare cyclometer clock was produced by the Pittsburgh-based Pennwood Co. in the mid to late 1930s. It features an exquisite Adler-Royal case supplied by the Adler Manufacturing Co. of Louisville, KY. The lower portion is Thuya burl walnut, while the veneered keystone arched match work on the upper part is aspen. A 1937 catalog notes that this clock was "created by one of America's foremost designers." Doesn't happen to mention who that designer might have been, unfortunately....

    The only other model I have seen other than my own. One of the rarest Pennwoods. Period.
