Description


This isn't exactly what you would call artwork, but it is pretty. I post it everywhere I can, with the hope that someone can tell me something about the clock. I recall it sitting on my mother's mantle in the mid-1950's.

On the back are a series of patent numbers, and a sticker from the Oxford Metal Spinning Co. Inc. On the clock face, it says Movement by Sessions.

I believe the clock is ceramic, and the gold patina rubs off, so cleaning is out of the question. I've searched for years, via the internet, and by taking it to clock shops. I haven't been been able to get any information. Maybe you can help.

It has a comemorative look to it, as if it were created for a queens anniversary or a papal visit or something.Nice
