Here's a fantastic Art Deco Era alarm clock designed by Leo Ivan Bruce and made by General Electric in 1939, Model 7H118. It has an ivory-colored shell made of a Bakelite-like material called Plaskon. The two-tone brown and mocha oval face features glow-in-the-dark numbers and hands, though it's glow power has faded a bit over the years.

It runs fine, keeps good time and the alarm is one of the last electric clocks to use an actual bell for the alarm. The sound is buzzy ring, which is pleasant enough to not be annoying but still insistent enough to get you out of bed. There are a few scuffs and nicks here and there, but overall it's in great shape. The glass front is real glass, not plastic, so it hasn't yellowed, and is in excellent condition. The cord and plug are original, in good condition

It's about 5" wide and 4" tall, wil weigh about 2 lbs, packed carefully for shipping.

$11.50 maximum for Insured Parcel Post within U.S., we'll refund any shipping savings over $1. International buyers please contact us for a quote. Item #6-1206003

Maximum of $17.95 for 1st Class Mail International to anywhere else in the world.
