Kal-Klok, clock, alarm, and calendar. It is not signed anywhere, but was made by the Howard Clock Corp. of Chicago in the 1930’s. They made many kids of novelty clocks. The Kal-Klok rotary movement was invented by Packard Herbert Lamport and he assigned the patent to the Western Clock Company and several others. I have had 3 of the Kal-Kloks but none as nice as this one. Some did not have a hinged top like this one. It has the original cream paint and stands 5.5 inches high. With the lift up top this one is more attractive than others I have had that just showed the top of the movement with all the wind and set knobs. We see them for sale on ebay bringing $300 and more. $100-$250.
Unusual English tin clock. If you have sold clocks as long as I have you will eventually see almost every clock that has ever been made. This clock was made by Fryer & Co in Nelson, Lancashire, England. Advertising printed on the back door says in part, “This Container is issued for our World Famous VICTORY “V” Gums and Lozenges / And a few other lines / The World’s Winter Sweetmeats”. I can only assume you bought this cheaply made tin container with a cheap time only clock, (that is running by the way) filled with their goodies. The clock is made with feet to stand alone, I assume when you eat all the goodies you throw the tin away and keep the clock. $25-?
