About

Art Deco clock by “Sessions, U.S.A.”, in Bakelite, chrome and aluminium, in form of an aeroplane with wings, front cabin and wheels only (no fuselage or rear body). A truly great piece of fun for the aeroplane or clock enthusiasts. Cast aluminium lower frame with black rubber tyres that roll, and polished aluminium propellers that rotate, and the far, rear small plane wheel (which is cast in detail). The cabin is made of the early brown mottled Bakelite, as also the engine surrounds and the start to both wings, which are in chrome on metal, and chrome surround creating windows to cabin. The clock face is as new and unmarked. It has “Sessions”, the company name below the 12, and all numerals, black with gilt surround, in Arabic numerals, and the moving second hand in red. Below the 6, is “Made in U.S.A.”. The clock face edge is banded in gilt, and all in perfect condition. The original clock motor had been burnt out and is now replaced with a “Crystal movement” running on 1, new AA Battery. All the face and hand components are retained as original. Keeps perfect time. Dimensions are approximate: Wingspan 520mm; clock face 105mm diameter, 220mm max. Height; “length” front to rear cabin 120, U.S.A.
