    Not sure if it is of any value, but can't find one like it online - trying to determine the timeframe. It has some damage, but could easily be restored. Added picture of the cord which has some nice vintage masking tape :)

    The clock is quite large - dimensions are 24 1/4 x 13 x 4 1/2

      It is a early advertisement clock. Notice the "Doctor approved" that is highlighted by underline. It was one of the first to be.
      Also, St. Joseph developed the first children's aspirin, with its known orange color and taste.
      The oldest clock I saw while looking is from the late 1940s.
      I did not see yours however.
      Great Post!!

      I can still recall that wonderful orange flavor of baby aspirins....they were bought for my new baby sister, but I (age 7), would slip a few every now and then! The bottle caps were rubber and easy to child-proof caps back then.
      I considered them to be a nice treat. :^)

      Can find plenty of St. Joseph Advertising Clocks but nothing like yours.
      Maybe a photo or two of the movement could help folks with knowledge of electric clocks narrow down the time frame of when your clock was made?
      Be careful about "restoring" this clock. It's apparently rare. In my opinion, you don't want to put a battery-powered quartz movement in it. It might be much more valuable as it is even if it isn't working, but remains all original.

      Thanks for sharing!
