Being offered is this vintage timer clock with hour markers showing world and USA cities. Made by General Electric from the Art Deco era, likely 1930s-40s. Model number 8852, it still has the original power cord and works. Made of bakelite plastic (breakable if dropped).
See photos zoomed for details. The clock shows normal signs or age and use, though no major abuse or obvious damage. The clock's face has faded some and the clear lens has wear.
Measures 6.25" high x 5.25" wide x 3.25" deep. Weighs almost 2 lbs.
The timer is set by handling the small triggers around the face, and the toggle switch below it. At some point the alarm or bell goes off.

Will be carefully packed, tracked and ship-insured in US (fees included). For international buyer, you may add tracking and insurance fees if Priority or Express upgrade is chosen (optional, though we only once lost a shipment in 12 years, out of 900+ shipments. Insurance covers lost or damaged goods, for refunds).
