Electric Neon Clock Company , 1950's Clevand Spinner Clock, Awesome Clock:
First time offered for sale. 1950's original 26 inch Cleveland spinner neon clock. Manufactured by Electric Neon Clock Company. Not a reproduction. Extremely rare. This clock looks awesome day or night. Great color. I purchased clock from the original owner 32 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since. The original owner bought the clock for his chicken dinner restaurant in Ashland, Nebraska. I bought the clock and removed it from the outside of his building where it was originally installed. It did not work when I bought it. I installed a new transformer and electrical cord and all the neon, clock and spinner worked. Believed to have the original 3 rings of neon tubing. Red, green and white neon. I have never replaced or repaired any of the neon and the original owner said he never had either. Metal can and metal marquee were repainted 32 years ago. The lettering on the marquee are original and have not been touched up or repainted. The following items are original to this clock: neon, can, dial, plastic cover, marquee sign with lettering, spinner and clock. Original tag and serial number are on clock face.Spinner works most of the time, but sometimes doesn't catch. I'm sure there is some wear around the attachment. May just need re-tightening. Some scratches on dial at 9:00 and 11:00 from the clock hands. These can be touched up. There is also some wear on center plastic cover from spinner dial rubbing against cover. I think these marks could be removed by carefully polishing on the inside of the plastic cover. Clock does show some signs of aging, but it is a 60 plus year old clock. Keep in mind this clock had been displayed outside from mid 1950's till 1981 before I bought it. After I bought it, I kept it indoors from 1981 til 2001, then installed it outside. So it has been exposed to the elements. Can be enjoyed as is or easily restored. Prices are sure to keep appreciating on these spinner clocks as there are nearly impossible to find in original condition. Please look at all pictures and if you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them. Crating and shipping will be an additional $ 210.00 to mainland US only. Insurance is included in shipping/crating costs. If you choose to pick up clock in Omaha, the $ 210.00 shipping/crating cost will not apply. This is a great clock and has been the prize of my collection for 32 years. It would be a great addition to any neon collection. Thank you for looking and offerding.
