The 2H09 and 2H09-A Stewardess
STEWARDESS, an attractive clock for the kitchen wall. Metal case in a variety of colors: chrome with ivory, green, black, white, red or all chrome. Priced at $4.95. Telechron clocks, from $2.95 to $17.50 are sold by leading dealers throughout the country.
has a special gold and beige color scheme and special dial
(above right). Interesting is that the G.E. companion to
the 2H09-A seems to be a similarly-colored 2H08 Garcon. This is my
favorite kitchen clock in the line. The main thing to
out for is pitting in the chrome. The chrome was plated
copper-clad pot metal and if they got damp and that pot metals
started to tarnish, there's no stopping it. It's extremely
hard to restore this kind of damage so go out of your way to
a good one and don't keep it down cellar.
above on the left is a near-exact reproduction of our little Stewardess
in chrome. It's a direct steal right down to the size and
dial. The main differences are: no reset signal or hole
one, quartz movement, no pendant set knob (that's a knob that
hangs below the clock if you didn't guess) so you have to take
clock off the wall to set the time and paper dial bearing the
name of the "manufacturer". How can anyone put
their name on a clock that's just an inferior copy of someone
else's work? Oh, yeah--the new clock costs five times more
than the original selling price of the Stewardess. With
inflation, that's a bargain unless you consider the quartz
will break in a year or two. The clock on the right is a real
Stewardess in ivory.
