Vintage Globe Ormolu Alarm Clock
Globe produced high quality vanity items in the 1950s and 60s, of which this alarm clock is a good example. Globe used 24K gold to plate their items, and the gilding is perfect on this clock. It came from an estate with many wonderful items, and everything was very well cared for. The face of the clock has a blush coloured sateen surround. The cord is in excellent condition, and the clock keeps perfect time. The hands and the dots on the hour have a soft glow at night so that one may be able to tell the time in the dark. I couldn't find a thing wrong with this item. It is beautifully detailed, and has a handsome face. The back has velveteen on it, and rings of design around the back of the clock, even though it probably wouldn't be seen. Please note the dimensions stated on this item, as it is much larger than most of these vintage clocks usually are.
Dimensions are 8 1/2" high and 7 1/2" wide.
Très charmante, n'est-ce pas?
