706.           $100

“Eureka Clock Co. Ltd. / London / 1905”, signed on the movement plate of this rare electric clock. It comes with a wood base and glass dome but the clock sits freely under the dome and not attached to the base. It takes two C batteries placed underneath the base, to run the clock. The one-piece porcelain dial and hands appear to be original. Extra holes on the brass base are above my pay grade to describe as I know next to nothing about electric clocks. The clock by itself is 7 ½ inches tall, with dome and base it is 10 inches high. $100-$250.

712.           $25

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-?
