From a nice estate, I'm offering this unusual lamp clock case. I believe the main part of this clock/lamp combination is made of painted spelter. I'm not sure what the socket holder and its "arm" are made of.This lovely piece appears to be Art Deco style with a pretty girl with flowing hair carrying a large pitcher. She is standing on a shell decorated geometric pedestal. It stands 13" high by ~8" wide by ~4" deep; the base measures 7" by 2 1/2". The hole for a clock movement is 2 1/8" across. Raised markings on the bottom say "MFG. BY A. SCHADOW & SON 353 CANAL ST. NEW YORK, N.Y. EXCLUSIVELY FOR JAMES RADIN INC.". This is in nice condition for its age (which I believe was made around the late 1920's to early 1930's). It does have some paint flaking, t is a dark spot on the front which has the remains of a sticker of some sort, the socket holder has some rust on the "leaves", and this obviously would need to be rewired. (The light colored piece you see in the photo of the bottom appears to be a metal frame for the clock area. It is being held inside the case with a piece of wire that stretches from side to side; I have not attempted to remove either the frame or the wire that is holding it.) Overall, though, I think this is a very nice piece by a manufacturer who may have made only a limited number and/or type of items. (The only reference I could find to A. Schadow & Son was a clock/lamp combination that sold in a major clock auction in 2004.) Shipping will be determined at the end of the auction and is dependent on how far you live from NC. Shipment will be within 2-3 business days after receipt for money orders or PAYPAL, while checks will generally require a 5-7 business day wait. Thanks for looking.
