is mahogany but it's stained to look like maple (I guess). It's very
pretty, though. Most of these were built with a control knob for
changing the loudness of the alarm but mine is an early example without
one. If it looks familiar, it's because Colonnade is just
a 7H139 plopped into a new case. You may

You see, this clock normally lives in drawer with some broken pals.
He came down to get his picture taken, then back he goes. I did clean
the crystal. I'm afraid to say the clock originally belonged to someone
who must have died of lung cancer. The inside smelled like an ashtray
and there was a glue-like nicotine film covering the inside and outside
of the glass. Bleaah. This model has that rotten single
piece bezel that they must have crimped with a special tool. It's
really hard to get on and off. At least you don't have to worry about
breaking off the little tabs.
