4H157  The Banker
 
 
Production of this model was suspended due to the War and never resumed.
back to the War Yearsto the CB505

 
 

Here's the clock I'm proudest of.  When we first met, it was drunk, in the gutter and painted beige.  The back was unpainted but some reprobate had been using vicegrips to set the time.  That resulted in the circular damage to the wood you see this shot--OWCH!
Hic!

After I got my digital camera, I was half done with the restore and did get a shot of the Banker

au naturel.

This clock's claim to fame is the four kinds of wood used in it.  The only wood I'll commit to knowing is the walnut on the top outsides.  The style, with the rounded shoulders and black feet was appearing more and more in the years right up to the War.
