    I saw this clock and thought it was outstanding.
    I've had no success in finding out much about it.
    Anyone with any information would be most appreciated.

      I think it might be a variation of a rare, Art Deco Waltham clock in the "Fryart" glass line, as seen here:

      It's a really neat piece. It has a great cord too.

      This clock was designed in 1936 by William Hentschel. Hentschel was an artist and designer best known for his work for Rookwood Pottery, for whom he did thousands of ceramic designs in the teens and '20s. There's no asignee listed on any of his clock patents, so not sure if he was designing for Waltham, or for another clock mfgr. (Fyrart?) who was using Waltham movements.

      Apparently the company was Crystal Bent Glass Co., based in Cincinnati, OH.
