Windsor Electric Clock in Ceramic Claw Foot Case, 1930s
Windsor self starting electric clock set in an adamantine style ceramic case with claw feet. Stands 10 1/2" high. It's 12" across at its widest, except for the feet, which measure 12 3/4" across, from end to end. The depth is 2 1/2", except again on the feet, which have a 3 1/2" depth. The clock's dial is 4 1/2" in diameter. T are 3 columns on each side of the dial - one faces completely to the front, one is on the corner and the other faces the side. Bubble glass crystal and a brass bezel. Printed on the dial is "Windsor", "Self Starting" and "Gibraltar Mfg Co., Inc. Jersey City, N. J.". In excellent condition. The clock has run just fine for me. The dial shows some scoring from the hands. The crystal needs some inside cleaning as it looks to me. Otherwise it's fine. The case has no cracks or chips, but does have some crazing. The gilt work and other coloring is still quite strong and looks good. The back of the clock just says "patents pending" so a date for it is unknown. However, t was an overlap period in the 1930's when clocks with self starters began to replace spin starters on electric clocks. At that time, clock makers advertised the fact on the dial or the back or both. Because the clock is heavy, shipping weigh will be about 8 pounds, Fedex Ground shipping is recommended, but the high bidder will be given postal options as well. To ship it to Los Angeles, for example, would be $10.50; to New York City would $5.50.
