An amazing 27 inch explosion of golden rays surround this rare starburst wall clock from Welby, arguably producers of some of the finest mid-century modern sunburst wall clocks from the 1960s.

This vintage mid-century wall clock measures an impressive 27 inches in diameter and is of all-metal construction. The minimalist dial with brass-tone hour markers is surrounded by 12 highly reflective golden rays. Each ray is made from a single piece of folded sheet brass.

More Details:

The factory printed name "WELBY" is located below the "12" marker on the dial.

In great vintage condition, with a few minor scuffs and scritches here and there. There are a couple scritches on the dial around the "12" marker - please look at the images to see.
You can enlarge each image on the Etsy page, then click again on the enlargement to enlarge again. The small signs of age will fade from visual perception in most cases when the clock is hung on the wall in a room in a home or office. Please note that I made these images with very bright photo studio lighting (two 250-watt studio lamps) from 24 inches to about 5 or 6 feet of distance. That's more light, and less viewing distance, than most people experience when viewing a clock of this size in a room or office.

The clock works perfectly, and keeps perfect time. It runs accurately and quietly on one AA battery in a brand-new modern quartz mechanism. The original Welby factory hands have been adapted to fit the new movement's center post. A new battery is included.

When it arrives at your door, the unpacking is easy (we have a clever package design that just floats the clock safely in its sturdy cardboard carton.) Just pop in the (included) new battery, check your phone and set the time. Then pull up a very comfortable chair.

You're going to be sitting there for quite a while in complete amazement. :)

Interesting shipping notes:

Shipping always includes insurance and delivery tracking as offered by the carrier. This item requires signature confirmation at delivery. This clock will ship in an oversize flat carton as it is very large and does not disassemble for shipping. Shipping fees reflect size and weight, and the cost of the new shipping carton that's customized for this particular clock.

I *LOVE* to ship internationally. Happy to give a shipping quote custom researched for your destination -- just convo me!
