Vintage 1950's Mid Century Modern Eames era electric Starlight clock with glitter lava lamp "action" tubes.
Glass face clock with numbers at 3,6,9 and 12 and lines to indicate other numbers. Motor is mounted at center back. It has a cast metal base with a gold color finish and 2 glass tubes that fit into either side of it, and it has the original manufacturer's label on back. There is a light under each cylinder that heats up the liquid inside and convection currents circulate the small pieces of glitter foil that reflect light and create a mesmerizing display. A switch on the back turns the light off to stop the action. The clock works with or without light tubes turned on.
The 2 glass lava tubes are not identical- one has the molded number A-S 30 on the bottom. The other tube has the number A-s 23 on the bottom- the liquid in this tube is a little more yellow than the other. Both tubes have remnants of a fuzzy material at the bottom from inside the base to make them fit snug. See Detail Photos. Selling As Is,As Shown.
