A very rare clock/lamp combination to find out there any more. These were made by United and were once referred to as a TV lamps. This one is in the bowtie look and is a model number 340 and were produced in the 1950's. During the first decade of mass television adoption, there was a common belief that watching TV in low light could damage one's eyesight. But early televisions, with their dull luminescence, were best viewed in the dark so the TV lamp was invented to add a little light to the room and dispel people’s fears. They were made for about a decade when afterwards, these lamps surpassed their utilitarian purposes and were likely purchased as a trendy means of home decor.
This lamp, for being as old as it is, still works great. The clock keeps time like its suppose to and both bulbs inside the unit work fine. The metal casing is still in decent shape albeit a few scuffs here and there from years of use.
There's very few of these left in existence out there so grab this one quick. I don't think it'll last long in my shop.
