Paul skycl Clock

Okay, here you go folks, something you rarely see on eBay or anywhere else! Fully funcioning, totally complete Telechron bakelite skyscraper alarm clock. Circa 1930, sometimes attributed to Paul Frankl. These clocks are always missing the trim, missing the original plugs, missing the lights, cracked, not working, etc. This one is clean, working, and complete! However, as with all vintage electronics, we guarantee that it will leave here working, but we can't guarantee its continued working condition once it leaves our hands. For this reason we always recommend insurance. Features fabulous skyscraper shaped top with stepped sides. The case is in excellent condition. No chips, cracks or heavy scratches. Finish is smooth and shiny, trim is clean and intact. Front of case features inlaid strips of ridged metal. As an added bonus, this clock faces is adorned with a sunray type pattern of lines giving it a little extra style.

The original synchronous motor is in very good condition, and it keeps excellent time. Also has an interruption indicator, letting you know if your electric service goes out. A bulb illuminates the clock face at night, and is controlled by original bakelite knob. Replacement bulbs are available, ask us for details. Has it's orginal cord with bakelite plug, rewired with beautiful new and safe cloth cord. Again, as with all electronics we recommend having it checked by a pro for safety. Original brass metal tag displays model number, etc. Mirrored glass face cover shows only moderate wear; some wear is common with this model. Bakelite back and all original knobs are intact. Alarm is controlled by original brass switch. This clock appears to have been extremely well taken care of. You'll have a hard time finding a cleaner example!
