Presenting the "Maltz Baird Advertising Clock Collection"

As always, Astorlive endeavors to bring you the “Best of Time," including the rarest and most unusual watch and clock collectibles. We are honored to be able to introduce to you the “Maltz Baird Clock Collection”. This is one of the rarest and most important clock collections in the world today. Consisting of many 1 of 1 or "only" examples known.

The Baird clock has always been at the top end and the most prized of the Antique Advertising Clock world. These clocks were only produced from 1887 to 1897 for various companies to Advertise their products.Not many original clocks survived.

In the world of Baird Clock Collecting, emerged an expert collector; Mr. Jerry Maltz, who sought after the best of the best, all original clocks. For over 40 years he searched the world over, always looking for that “never seen before” Baird clock. In 1998 he wrote a book on the subject of Baird Advertising Clocks and included photographs and stories of some of his rarest and special clocks. He has given many talks and seminars on the subject.

In what we believe to be an opportunity of a lifetime, you now have a chance to own one of these beautiful 120 year old clocks, right out of the pages of Mr. Maltzs’ Book. All of the clocks offered come from the Maltz Collection. Each clock that is featured in the book will include a copy of “Baird Advertising Clocks”, personally signed by Mr. Maltz to complete your treasure.

Astorlive has a Baird clock in its private collection, we have to admit it always make us smile when we hear that 120 year old baby ticking away… Companies like Coca Cola knew what they were doing when they ordered their Coke Clock from Baird Clock Co. in the late 1800's and sent it to vendors selling100 gallons of coke.Over120 years later, that clock is still selling cokes & telling time….. WOW, a true piece of “TIME” History….

Clock Manufacturer Baird Clock Co. Advertiser Bachelor Cigar Circa 1897 Material Wood and Paper Mache Condition USED Dimensions 19 1/2" Outside Diameter Painted Metal Dial with 5 1/2" Chapter Ring

Description:

~ Bachelor Cigar ~ Now Sold For 5c ~

As Quoted from the Book, "Baird Advertising Clocks" by Jerry Maltz:

The BACHELOR CIGAR clock is without a doubt, a most unusual Baird Clock. This clock has two dials. Both dials have the name of the cigar maker, Victor Thorish of New York City printed on them along with Baird Clock Mfg. of Chicago. The larger dial is a standard Chicago type dial, but without a winding hole. The reverse dial is only 5 1/2 inches in diameter with the winding hole at eight. The clock was placed in a shop window. The larger dial was to be read from the outside of the shop. The smaller dial is in reverse, to be read correctly through a mirror in the shop. However, the numbers, although reversed, are not printed in reverse. Also, the advertisement could not be read through a mirror because the letters are not printed in reverse.

This Clock can be found on pages 148 and 149of "Baird Advertising Clocks".

Key and pendulum are included with each clock. All of the clocks from this collection wind and run; however, as with all 120 year old clocks, their timing may not be accurate and they can be temperamental.

There are a few imperfections that add to the character of this 120 year old clock, including patina and some marred edges. See photos for detail.
