Here's another recently found mini clock made by Burroughs in the 1925-1935 time frame. This is a banjo clock that was a part of a series of famous mini clocks made by Burroughs at the time. I have another clock in the series listed right now ( a steeple clock.) The reason that this is called a banjo clock is because of the shape of the case and the shape is strictly an original American design. The history of the banjo clock is on a label attached to the back bottom panel of the clock. This is an 8 day windup clock housed in a wooden case with brass trim and 2 window panels featuring pictures of George Washington and his Mt. Vernon home. The pictures both have some kind of water stains on them, but do not detract from the presentation of the clock. The mechanism is an 8 day windup with the windup key on the back of the clock case. The clock is running slow and may need an adjustment to get it running correctly. The face of the clock is discolored somewhat and it has a few dark stains on it. The glass is in good condition and the gold colored frame has some rust spots on it. Hanging on a wall, this clock looks pretty good and doesn't take up a lot of space. The measurements are 16 1/2" tall x 5" wide x 2" deep. What a wonderful clock to add to your collection, or give it as a gift to someone that enjoys old clocks. These old banjo clocks are very hard to find in running condition. Please look at the pictures and decide for yourself. Thanks for looking.
