30s HERMAN MILLER Gilbert ROHDE Art Deco/Machine Age Chrome Clock-NR
8" wide x 6 1/4" tall x 3".
Total weight: 2 lbs.
Vintage clock in the Art Deco / Machine Age style.
Designed by GILBERT ROHDE for HERMAN MILLER. Chromed steel steeped base. Chromed, cast white metal frame. Enameled or silvered brass dial with screened numbers. Skyscraper hands. Red second hand. Self starting electric movement. Time only. Felted bottom.
This clock would have originally had a spin start electric movement with alarm function in a can-shaped housing. The clock motor, housing, cord and plug were replaced at some point long ago. Clips were added beneath two of the corner screws on back to secure the new motor housing. Otherwise the clock appears to be all original.
Signed on the face.
Circa early 1930s. USA.
Keep in mind all photos were taken outdoors -- depending on the photo this item may appear sun-dappled and / or may be reflecting surrounding scenery.
This clock is in very good original cosmetic condition. No damages and no significant wear. No cosmetic restorations.
No dings, dents, bends, breaks, mars, chips, cracks, splits, corrosion, significant oxidation, significant scratches.
No signs of abuse.
All hands are original and in excellent condition.
There are a few small, scattered smudges on the face. (I did not disassemble the clock in order to attempt to clean the face.) Consult photos. These marks aren't terribly conspicuous.
The bottom felt is moth eaten.
From the front the clock displays beautifully.
FUNCTION / ELECTRICAL:
The clock motor, housing, cord and plug were replaced at some point long ago. Clips were added beneath two of the corner screws on back to secure the new motor housing. (This clock would have originally had a spin start electric movement with alarm function in a can-shaped housing.)
The clock works and keeps good time. The motor operates smoothly and quietly.
The cord is in poor condition and will need to be replaced (the insulation is cracking).
The clock is somewhat difficult to set -- there is no knob on the set post and the threads on the post appear to be a bit buggered (I suppose in absence of a knob someone used pliers to turn the post).
