Bakelite Vitascope English Art Deco Rocking Ship Electric Clock Diorama Works :
This is a British made electric clock in a brown bakelite case with a rocking ship diorama. It stands about 13" high and has a compartment above the clock face where a sailing ship sits on blue seas with blue skies and clouds in the background. When the mechanism is started, the ship rocks fore and aft and a bit side to side as well. The whole scene is lit up when you hit the switch. The clock works, and the ship rocks, and the light works. The case is excellent; no cracks or damage. The only problem I see is the missing minute hand. (and the background seems to be loose on one side, but reattaching it should be no problem) The poor hour hand moves from one hour to the next all by itself! This is an excellent find and will be a great addition to your collection. It will be packed and shipped very carefully with insurance.
