Model:  1926 "America" Alarm Clock

Made by:   Westclox

Stock No:  VINT1322

Features: This is a nice example of the "tin can" style America model from the Western Clock Company (Westclox).  It features a separate set and wind knob for time and alarm.  The alarm sets and shuts off with a lever at the bell.  Loud ticking and loud alarm sound.

Dimensions:  6 1/2" tall to the top of the ring

Condition:  The movement has been serviced and it runs and alarms as it should.  The nickel plating is EXCELLENT.  The plating is mostly worn off of the bell from years of polishing.  The original dial is VERY GOOD.   There is a small ding at 3 o'clock on the front..   This one comes with a box that is correct for the year, but I cannot say it is original to the clock.  Given the overall condition of the clock, I would say it has been in this box for many years.  This clock will turn 90 years old this year.
