Vintage 1950s Bowman Dairy Chicago "buddy Bowman" Advertising Clock:
Here is a vintage Bowman Dairy advertising clock made by the Ohio Advertising Display Company in the pre-zip code days. I was raised in Chicago and remember the Milkman delivering bottles of Bowman to ourside dooronce a week. The clock measures approximately 15" across x 3" deep. Its plastic facefeatures images of the slogan "Bowman Milk Time" and Buddy Bowman on a "Superior Quality" blue ribbon. The clock is missingits clear plastic/glass face cover. Above the "Bowman" trademark, two areas of theface's surfaceare stippled, perhaps because something hot came in contact with it. This is not particularly noticeable when the clock is not plugged in, and modestly noticeable when it is. The affect is not nearly as pronounced as appears in my last photo. There should be two 15 watt bulbs inside but there is only one, so the winning buyer will have to add a bulb. The socket is easily accessable through a door on the back. On the bottom of the clock is a winding knob to set the time. The clock is in good working order and keeps time well. Its packaged weight will be five pounds. Shipping via USPS Standard Post will be $12.00. This is slower than Priority Mail, but also about twenty bucks cheaper. Any questions, just ask. Thanks!
