355  "The Cathedral"

Made of the famous Bakelite in a rich walnut color.  Is 5 1/2 inches wide, 7 1/4 inches high and 3 1/2 inches deep.  The 3 inch dial is finished in silver.  The Cathedral model withstands changes in temperature and moisture; retains its high lustre, with not scratch easily and requires no polishing.

I don't know why these always sell for so little, they are really nice.  They always seem to photograph big though.  It's less than 8 inches tall in person.  The 355 was Telechron's first star.  Someone got the bright idea of making a clock people could actually afford and it took off.  This the was most imitated Telechron ever; every electric clock company who was anybody had a cathedral-design.  I can't prove it, but this clock also inspired one of the most famous radio-styles of all time.  The Philco Cathedral radio came out three years after this clock and inspired countless cathedral-style radios.
