This sale is for a Vintage Telechron Telemaid Kitchen Clock. It is model no.
2H43 and was made in the early 1950's. It was made by the Telechron company which made electric clocks from 1912 to 1992. It is
made of yellow plastic with chrome sides. It has a nice Art Deco look. It has the patented "Red Dot" which indicates if there was
a power failure. From Wikipedia: "If there is a temporary power outage while the owner is out, the running clock will display the
incorrect time when he returns. Warren, foreseeing this difficulty, provided his clocks with an "indicating device": a red dot
that would appear on the dial whenever the power failed. This red dot alerted the consumer to the need to reset the clock
(by obtaining the accurate time through the telephone, for example, or from a radio). Setting the clock would reset the indicator.".
Also from Wikipedia: "Telechron clocks are often considered genuine pieces of art-but art affordable by all, as thousands of them
were made. The company employed some of the finest designers of the time, such as Leo Ivan Bruce (1911-1973) and John P. Rainbault.".
The clock is in very good condition as shown with no chips or cracks. It has a couple of small scratches. The clock does work but it is a little slow when you first plug
it in then it keeps good time. Probably needs to be oiled. Also, the Bakelite plug has a chip as shown. The clock measures 7 1/8" by 6 5/8" and 2 1/4" thick. The cord is 8" long.
