Fluted central section is mahogany with maple(?) end pieces. Paper label on base states "Sole Manufacturers and Distributors: M. M. Gottlieb Associates, Inc., Allentown, Pa." The case was likely designed by Moritz M. Gottlieb as well, but I haven't been able to find a patent. This clock uses a rotating disk type movement patented by Frederick A. Greenawalt in 1942. That movement was also used in the very collectible catalin cased clocks made by Winslow. Moritz Gottlieb designed a "Radio Clock" in 1940 that also used a Greenawalt designed movement, the same one used in Pennwood/Numechron clocks and some GE cyclometer clocks.

    What I've learned since initially posting this clock is that the name of the manufacturer was Moritz M. Gottlieb, an industrial designer who probably designed the clock case as well. The movement was designed by Frederick A. Greenawalt and is the same as the one used in the streamlined catalin clocks made by Winslow. The only patents of Gottlieb's I've found are for a glass bottle, and for a "Radio Clock" (1940) that also used an F.A. Greenawalt designed movement, the one used in Pennwood-Numechron-Tymeter, Barr, and GE cyclometer clocks of the 1930s-70s as well.

    Chadakoin, Does your Teleometer have a number embossed on the bottom of the clock. Mine has 955, which I assume could be the model number, the number of the clock when it was manufactured, or for September 1955?
