    Hi CW Gang:

    Sorry for the absent here, just been busy. I just picked this up today a Vintage United Wood Ship Clock that lights up with Red on one end, and Blue on the other. I think the light toppers are not correct, as I assume they had glass or something in them. But I still love it anyways. Big Clock, and very classy. Maybe 1950's or 1960's I guess....??

    Oh...but not so much fun to CLEAN IT .......LOL

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

    ~ Rose ~

      I remember actually going to auctions and seeing these at times. Much better than looking on the web.

      this is really a Gorgeous combi. any idea where itnis made in?
    5. NevadaBlades, 5 years ago
      Brenda, it says MADE IN USA under the 6 in photo #2.
      Very neat ship clock, Rose! [;>)

      This is very cool and delightful Rose. You need a ship drinks tray to go with it; you know the ones, with decanter and shot glasses.
      Maybe not - probs a different class altogether. This one isn't tacky lol.

      You bought yourself a winner here Rosie! I love mixed media pieces and yours has everything... metal, glass , string , wood etc. Great Piece! You captured it beautifully in the first pic!

      It's great Rose. Ditto what Rick said. :)

      These are actually called " Silver Cloud " and the label hung with two small nails just to the left of the middle left side of clock. Identical ones to yours also had different clock movements. Some were made by United, Sessions and also Americano, but those are just the clock movements used. Your version was made by United Metal Co. Inc., Brooklyn, N.Y.
    12. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 5 years ago
      I am not sure if the other two makers were just clocks that also fit the hole also perfectly for the clock, but that is a possibility. I know I have seen one my best friend in Regina had, which had a sessions clock movement.
