Wall, shelf or Mantel clock, sub-miniature American OG. Please read the full description. In pristine condition, clock case is 10” by 7 1/2” by 2 3/4”, with a 3 1/2” square MINT original dial. Case is solid mahogany with strong original finish, has been cleaned and waxed. Mint original square convex glass crystal and reverse painted glass tablet. The original Telechron electric movement was replaced with a new quality quartz movement. Timekeeping is within a few seconds a month. The old movement and hands are available if you want them. Clock can be either hung on the wall or it will sit upright on a mantel. A new brass wall bracket was installed. The term O.G. in antiquity refers to the type of wood molding used to make the clock. This is the last of a pair.
I feel confident that these clocks were copied from the miniature Seth Thomas OG clocks, but in an even smaller version. See last photo showing the large, miniature and sub-miniature OG clocks, to give you an idea of the size of this clock. The other O G Clocks pictured are sold. This is the last of two Miniatures.
The Telechron Clock Co. started in business in 1912, in Ashland, Massachusetts. It was founded by Henry Ellis Warren. Telechron was the first to introduce the synchronous electric clock. In 1943 they were acquired by General Electric, later they were part of the Herschede Clock line, the division known as Revere Clock Co. Telechron clocks were a significant part of the historical clock making history in the USA. The sub-miniatures do not often show up for sale and never is this condition. See photos.
