Description

Isn’t this Ultra Retro Art Deco Catalin Bakelite 3pce Clock Photo Frame Set one straight out of the Seers Catalouge c1955 !!

Such a “happy , Colourful & Positive”   remnant of decorative art’s”  al’a carte 1950’s.
True though.  This genre of 1950’s,  relatively inexpensive to make & buy ,  ‘home decoration  goods’  reached a peak in the 50’s ,  with Catalin and Bakelite being ingeniously utilised for some decades previously in many genres including radios , kitchen utensils {handles etc} , mirror frames,  dressing table accessories etc etc.

The 50’s saw ‘the last stand’ pretty much,  at least to anywhere near the same degree as previous decades of Catalin Bakelite Phenolic & various 1st Cousins.

An amazing substance or substances , Bakelite , Caitlin , Phenolic {as these are} and many other names associated with the known names as mentioned ,  with some forms of  Catalin being exceptionally attractive / appealing substance  ~  I have included 2 images of vintage radios in Catalin for those unfamiliar with it.

Standing approx; High 205mm (8.07in) and wide 133mm (5.24in)  The pair of frames will look great with the super cool clock centered between the frames!

With the Lux clock being approx;  170 mm W  x  96 H it is a good size.
Beautiful Octagon shaped art deco dial & original hands etc.

The clock is currently not running yet IF required ,  It will be an inexpensive fix  &  we have more than adjusted the price ,  basically pricing the clock at $50 of the au$298 selling price!

Some would think that the clock does not need to be functioning ,  as it it the appearance & aesthetic that the three pieces provide more so than as an accurate time keeper!
