20” diameter wood framed tin dial Chicago Baird Advertising Wall Clock. Please read the full description. The original tin dial is marked , Made by Baird Clock MFG Co. Evanston, Ill. The unmarked 8 day time piece movement was rebuilt, runs strong and keeps good time. 15 years ago when I purchased this clock it arrived badly damaged without insurance. It had been in a box until just recently. After straightening the tin dial, re-gluing the frame back together and rebuilding the movement it shows well and came out pretty good. Frame is off-center, and the dial is held on by 3 small brackets. I would prefer to ship the clock with the dial off. There is a partial label on the pendulum access door, not legible. Even thought the movement is in the case a bit crooked it is a strong running time piece. Clock has the original Maltese hands and pendulum. The book on Baird clocks by Jerry Maltz discussed the Chicago Bairds with several photos. It also discusses the use of unmarked movements. The clock is not perfect, it is what it is. See photos.
