An unusually small, hot mid-century modern, circa 1960s starburst wall clock in a classic atomic design by Seth Thomas.

This clock demands attention wherever it's hung.

Beautifully combines the gleam of 16 brass-tone "atomic" rods with ball ends with the warmth of 16 teak rays. Like a burst of fireworks on your wall!

More Details:

This clock is In lovely, gift-able vintage condition; the brass-toned metal is especially nice, with minor age toning and a few lines, spots and such on the brass-tone parts, and some rubs and scritches on the wood. There is a small disturbance in the finish on one of the brass hands near the center - I saw this when I was going over the item and had not noticed it before when it was on the wall for photography. ]

The metal parts are wonderfully bright and cleaner than most vintage starburst clocks I run into. Click and click again on each the photos to enlarge for details. I took the photos with very bright photo studio lighting ( using two 250 watt floodlamps) from 2 to 6 feet distance, and the closeup from about 15 inches. That's more light, and less viewing distance, than most people experience in the rooms or offices where clocks of this size are used.

This iconic "Mad Men" clock is in a very hard to find size: just 20.5 (21) inches in diameter from tip to tip. It's the only one in this size and style (not to mention condition!) that I ever have found.

All metal and wood construction.

The clock works perfectly, runs silently, and keeps perfect time. Designed originally as battery powered (there's no keyhole on the dial) it's been fitted with new hands and a brand new quartz movement that runs on one AA battery.

A new battery is included. Just pop it in, set the time, and then hang the clock using the keyhole hanger that Seth Thomas placed at the top of the clock's back support (could this be easier?)

Be sure to hang the clock where you know everyone will see it,

and wait for people to oooooh and aaaaah!

They will.
