The Syracuse Ornamental Company, of Syracuse, New York was founded by Adolph Hostein in the late 1890's. The company developed a molding process that took a wood composite resin, and pressed it into molds. It produced a fine product that appeared to look "carved", but was easy to mass produce in any shape or form. A genius idea! The company's main focus was decorative items for the home.
Syroco produced many different styles of clocks. Wall clocks, coo-coo clocks, alarm clocks, and figural clocks. I'm particularly interested in the figural ones pictured here as they are "go with" type items to the Syroco Corkscrews that I collect.
The clocks were produced with a Lux wind up timepiece. Syroco produced the housing.
Got any to sell?
Maybe to trade or donate?
Or do you have a couple you'd like more information on?
I'm interested! Feel free to contact me anytime!
I'd love to hear from you!
