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 Chamberlain Cigars and Cigarettes Circa 1897 Material Wood and Paper Mache Condition USED Dimensions 29 3/4" Long x 21" Wide Painted Metal Dial with 10 1/2" Chapter Ring

Description:

Very Rare Last Year Production Baird Clock Smoke Chamberlain Cigars and Cigarettes 10c

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

J. M. Fortier was located in Montreal. It is the only company known to have advertised itself with Baird clocks from the early "deep cut" days in Montreal up to the period when Baird moved to Evanston, Illinois ten years later.

This clock can be found on pages 152 & 153 of "Baird Advertising Clocks".

Also can bee seen on page 27 in the "Edward Payson Baird Inventor" Book by Leonard J Schiff (copy of this book included in this sale)

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. 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.

**This Clock is one of several in the Maltz Collection that the collector had never seen duplicated over the course of its 40 year procurement!
