"McCrory's 5 & 10 Cent Store & J. P. Coats Spool Cotton" Double Advertising Clock made by the Sessions Clock Co. in a Solid Oak Case circa 1920's to 1940's !
Model is "Regulator "E" which was made by The Sessions Clock Co. Solid Oak Case with a partial Factory Paper Label on the backboard. Solid Oak Case has wonderful "Lattice Cartouches" on the top Cornice Molding, "STARS" on Door Frame, and the "Flying Wheel or Flower" on the center of the bottom Bracket.
Printed Paper Dial Reads as follows : "McCrory's 5 & 10 Cent Store * Nothing Over 10 Cents * Reading,Pa." Dial Lines up with Movement Holes, but is skewed inside wood frame. Must have been a rush-job. (I didn't want to make new movement mounting holes in the backboard, so I left it alone.)
