This large ornate set is a lovely stylish example of the 1970s. Clock mechanism has been replaced with a new AA
battery works mechanism ($10). This model has a open face...no glass. The clock is marked
on the back MCMLXXVI 1591 Burwood Product Company making this a 1976 product. The sconces are marked 1592 and are a 1977
product. The clock measures 25" in
diameter and the sconces are 20” x 6”.
When I say lightly refreshed, I mean I completely cleaned it and added a light,
light spraying of gold paint just enough to add sparkle and to remove any old
plastic smell. Sometimes when old plastic sits in heat or dampness, it will take on an odor. The color still has some variation, dimension and depth. I have seen these clocks
and sconces with chains attached on the little floret knob; therefore, I suspect
that is how they were originally sold. This
unit does not have the chains. If it had
chains, I would have taken them off. It
is a lovely and sophisticated look without the chains. The
chains are not my style but probably could purchase the chain at a craft store
if that is something you like. If you
are a vintage purest, this is not the set for you. It really is a nice set that will last for many
more years. It is worth the investment.
I have it carefully packaged in a strong box with plenty of
reinforcement. It is big and heavy so
will not be cheap to ship but it will get to you undamaged. Shipping will be $17 to 25 dollars for this size box.
