We have here another wonderful find in this Handsome Retro Desk, Mantel or Table Quartz Clock.
We cannot be sure of its maker. It seems to read: URA or possibly URF – we are really not certain. We also are not certain of its country of origin although the Battery Compartment indicates that the compartment itself – was made in Japan. Perhaps the entire clock was also. We really cannot say though with absolute certainty.
It stands about 7 1/2 inches tall, has an approximate width of 6 1/2 inches and is about 2 3/8 inches deep – measured at the brass base plates. Its style is right out of the mid 1950’s Eames Era with its forward Modern look.
This beautiful clock features a very rich and warmly grained selection of wood for its cabinet . We are not absolutely certain precisely which wood it is – but the grain tones are truly special. The nice convex covering the face with its Roman Numerals, certainly gives an extra special added dimension of quality and interest.
It stands on gracefully shaped brass plates below its wood Base. It would make for a lovely accent on your mantel, desk or table which is just in need of that certain something extra as a finishing touch.
Our beautiful Quartz Clock is in lovely aged condition showing little surface wear and age-related patina – and is in good running order using one AA Battery. Please Note: the battery shown in the photograph was only used as an example – and is Not part of this auction.
Just give it a gentle cleaning – Display – and – Enjoy!
This lovely Retro Clock is quite a treasure and should be another fantastic addition to your collection. It can only continue increasing in value as more and more time goes by bringing you much pleasure as well as many compliments.
