    Hi CW Gang:

    WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES FOR ANY WATCH or CLOCK COLLECTORS. Not for the Meek !!!

    LOL, thought I best warn any Watch of clock collectors before they look at this picture. It might be hard for them to see a picture made up of clock pieces. Anyhow, I have an original L. Kersh Collage picture. Unfortunely some pieces are coming loose and the original glue ( or maybe someone elses glue ) has turned yellow. Still just a neat ORIGINAL piece to have.

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

      Rose, that's such a cool piece of mod art & was probably quite the conversation piece!

      I saw a similar picture like this in a charity shop, but it was a train. I was attracted to it, but didn't get it in the end. Parts of clocks do seem to make great collages.

      Antiquerose, true there are some clock/watch collectors that get really upset when they see parts used in "art" form, I am not one of them. I have a belt buckle made up of watch parts and a S&W (Smith & Wesson) logo also made of watch parts.

      1970 is almost an antique now, as time flies ! I love this great artist idea and the signature looks hand signed. Superb find !~

      Hello everyone. I have 3 boxes full of LKersh collages similar to the one in the picture. Some are in their original packaging but others have some need restoring back to their former glory.

      Is anyone interested in these for their collections?

      Thanks , Dan
