FOR SALE ☞ 1920's De Luxe Mantle Clock by Lux Clock Mfg. Co.
DESCRIPTION ☞ This handsome plug-in De Luxe Ribbon Mantle clock was made by the Lux clock Mfg Co sometime in the late 1920s based on the fact that in 1930, the Lux Clock Company ceased using the word "De Luxe" on their clock faces.
The clock is made of a dark wood and has red accent paint throughout. The clock face has "De Luxe" written in a diamond in the center, with the manufacturer's mark written along the bottom. The reverse side of the clock has two knobs -- one knob is a starter assist to get the clock's second hand moving when the clock is initially plugged in. The other knob is to adjust the minute and hour hands. All knobs and clock are working at the time of posting. Comes with original electrical cord and plug.
DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT ☞ Approx : :L 8 Inch H 10.5 inch. Clock has decent weight to it, being made of wood.
CONDITION ☞ The condition of this clock is good considering it's age. It does show signs of wear, which is consistent with its age and prior use. Mechanically, the clock did perform as desired when we plugged it in. We gave it a moment to warm up, and gently used the assist knob on the back. Plugged in for an hour, it proceeded to keep time. Please see the listing video. The original cord and plug are still attached and work without fault, however the fabric covering on the cord has mostly worn off.
The exterior of the front of the clock does have some paint faded from the years. This only serves to lend a beautiful patina that captures the essence of late Art Nouveau style. The clock face and glass is not scratched, and all lettering and numbers on the clock are crisp and clean! On the reverse of the clock where some black paint has flaked off.
We suggest that if the buyer is planning on using the item on a regular basis, that the clock be regularly serviced, oiled and even possibly rewired to current 2022 electrical standards.
