Art Deco Period Brown Bakelite automaton electric clock in absolutely excellent condition & perfect working order.

The brown Bakelite case has a niece patina & has no cracks , repairs or damage at all.

It is in perfect working order, the ships rocks back & forth, & the back-light fades from dawn to dusk, it runs smoothly & quietly keeping accurate time.

The ship is is also in perfect condition as is the sea & sky backdrop.

The light can be switched on & off with the toggle switch & the metal knob to the right of the light switch is turned to start the ship movement when the clock is first switched on.

My Uncle has had it in use for the last 40 years, it is fitted with a modern three pin plug, the canvas cable is clearly old but i have had it running here on my desk perfectly for the last week, you may want to have the cable replaced with a modern equivilent to be perfectly safe.

Size:12 1/2 inches high, 10 1/2 inches wide, 6 3/4 inches deep.
