Telechron American Art Deco Skyscraper Clock in Mint Green

This is the most famous “Paul Frankl” clock…that Paul Frankl had nothing to do with. Produced from about 1929 till 1931 this skyscraper styled American art deco table clock was made by the Warren Telechron Company. Known as the Model 700 and marketed as the “Electrolarm”, the clock came in three colors; walnut (brown Bakelite) and white or green “Vinylite” (Plaskon). Brown colors are the most common, green the rarest. The clock is 8” high and 6” wide at the base.
