This is the the First Electric alarm clock built by the "Darche Mfg. Co". in Chicago Ill. in the late 1800's. The alarm was NOT a wind up; but an electric. Run from a battery - cell placed in the right side tower. It also came with a push button switch to light the light bulb above the clock at night. I do not have that cord & switch. From time to time they pop up on E-Bay. This one has a working clock. The bank part is unique too with the vault door to remove the money.
