Whitehall-Hammond produced opulent marble, onyx and alabaster clocks in the late 20's and into the early 30's Mr. Whitehall would design and buy the cases, and Mr. Hammond would supply the movements, the partnership dissolved during the depression because demand for these clocks dropped with the economy. Mr. Hammond of the partnership continued making clocks until 1941, then he began selling Organs bearing his name..
This clock has to be primed by spining a knob located in the back of the clock movement. The case was made in Beligum, and the green oynx on the bottom, top, and sides, came from Brasil. It is 6.75" tall, 6.5" in width, and 2.5" in depth. The bezel is intact. The face of the clock is beige and gold with black numbers shows a little scuffing.
The clock is in working condition and runs quietly and does well in the timekeeping department. The clock appears to be all original with the exception of the cord, however the plug looks original to the clock.
