THEY WERE PLACED AT "NO CHARGE" IN TOBACCO SHOPS AND GENERAL STORES TO DISPLAY THE DIFFERENT BRANDS THAT WERE BEING PROMOTED.CUSTOMERS WOULD COME IN TO A SHOP TO FIND OUT WHAT TIME IT WAS,AND WOULD BE EXPOSED TO VARIOUS,ARTSY ADVERTS. MOST STORE DISPLAYS WERE THROWN AWAY OR THE CLOCK PART ALONE WAS SAVED.VERY FEW EXAMPLES HAVE ESCAPED THE UNFORGIVING, RAVAGES OF TIME. I AM NO EXPERT,BUT EVERY PROFESSIONAL THAT HAS SEEN THE CLOCK HAS TRIED TO PURCHASE IT. WE WERE TEMPTED A FEW TIMES BUT WE PROMISED THE FAMILY THAT WE WOULD GIVE EVERYONE AN EQUAL CHANCE TO offer ON THE CLOCK.WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT IT MAY BE ONE OF THE ONLY SURVIVING EXAMPLES OF THIS KIND OF CLOCK LEFT ANYWHERE.THE TOP AND SIDES ARE REMOVABLE FOR EASY AND AFFORDABLE SHIPPING.BUYER TO PAY SHIPPING AND CAN CHOOSE BETWEEN REGULAR POST OR FED-EX.THE LATER WILL COST AROUND $135.
