Hello Fellow Collectors. Thought I might share this one with you all today. It's a combination of three things I normally look for in a timepiece, which most of the time I get one of the positive attributes, some times a couple and very rarely get all three.
This clock was produced by Smiths in Great Britain, circa mid to late 1950's . Composed of Bakelite casing and painted glass for the crystal to highlight the background of dial. The dial is a depiction of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, the walking stick is an animated feature that waves as the seconds click off. The third feature is the one that takes the cake.... This alarm feature is a mechanical music box that plays the tune "Who's Afraid of The Big Bad Wolf". Put all three of these attributes together and end result is one of the best "Character" clocks I own, IMO
Thanks for looking and hope you've enjoyed seeing this particular piece from the "Horde"
