Cool back-lit advertising clock for Tip Top Tailors Ltd. Tip Top Tailors was a Canadian mens-wear clothing retailer first founded in Toronto in 1909 by Polish-Jewish immigrant David Dunkelman (1883–1978). The clock was made by the Canadian Neon-Ray Clock Company of Montreal which was in operation from ca. 1942 to the mid 1960s.

This "Bulb Illuminated" advertising clock has a round (15" diameter) frame set in pressed-aluminum case with a flat glass face and shallow-domed glass cover. The advertising design was painted on the glass face. The face is marked across the bottom under the 6: "CANADIAN NEON-RAY CLOCK CO., LTD., MONTREAL, QUE., CANADA". There is also a label on the back.

Nice vintage condition and In working order. Takes 2 low wattage bulbs. Note crackling in paint on clock face from age. Dates late 1940s early 50s.

Measures 15" diameter x 3 1/2" deep.

NOTE: We highly recommend any vintage electronic be rewired for safety and the same holds true with this piece. Black electrical tape wrapped mid-way on the cord suggests there may be some damage to the original cord.

We also have a square back-lit advertising clock also by the same company for Kodak Film.
