Vintage Clock Smiths Cricklewood London English Art Deco SecTric Callboy Alarm Bakelite Case 1930s 1940s England
- Customer Reviews
Item - Vintage Art Deco Smiths SecTric Synchronous Alarm Clock with Bakelite Case, Circa 1930/40s complete with original flex and two pin plug which should be replaced by a qualified electrician to meet current safety regulations if required for use. The clock has been checked over and ticks along nicely, though the alarm has either been disabled or seized as the alarm dial will not move. The Bakelite is excellent condition with no chips or cracks though the face has a circular line where the hour handhas been catching slightly. This is an early example as the middle 'T' in SecTric on the dial is more prominant than only later models, the clock also features the Patent Numbers 366710, 369438, 374713, 402450 and 419767 with the later being granted in 1935 other patents were pending. The base of the clock is also scribed with the date 11/43....possibly date of manufacture?
