This is a vintage Telechron electric clock/timer. This is model 8b51 and is a 100/125 volts. This clock was produced by the Warren Telechron Co. and was made in Ashland ,Mass. I'm hoping someone may know more that me about this cool piece such as the time period its from etc...

    Hi Whitman75,
    The model name for your timer is the “Controlla.” It was designed by noted industrial designer Belle Kogan in 1935. Kogan designed some of Telechron’s best Deco/Moderne style clocks. The Controlla was marketed specifically as a radio timer – you plugged your old tube radio into it so you didn’t miss your favorite show. It was sold between 1935 and 1939.
