Hello Fellow Collectors. Earlier today fellow patron pw-collector(Dave) asked about a piece I have in one of my cabinets. This is what he was wanting to know about.....As Paul Harvey used to say "Here's the rest of the story"
This little clock was produced by The New Haven Clock Company as an advertisement piece for Friedman-Shelby Shoe Co. of St. Louis, Mo. circa 1908-11, International Shoe Company purchased Friedman-Shelby Shoe Company, and took over operations in 1912.
I've always found it ironic that design of this clock was it's in the shape of a horse shoe, advertising shoe for people.
Well that's about it, Thanks for looking and Dave, I hope you enjoy seeing this a little closer and Everybody....Have a Great Day
