4H87 The Kirkwood
KIRKWOOD is handsome in design. A really outstanding value. Cased in beautiful wood, it would be perfect for mantel or table. Priced at $6.50. Telechron is the best known name in the electric clock field.
assumed this was mahogany until I got all that finish off it.
Then I could see it was the same kind of wood used in the Snug. It's not a particularly
pretty wood (my friend, Joseph calls it "monkeywood")
so they stained it so dark that the grain would never show.
this page, you might think I just strip and refinish every clock
I get my hands on. That's not true. It's just that a
great many clocks pass through my doors and some would just never
get displayed without a complete makeover.
Alternate and presumably earlier Kirkwood dial (right) had a grey numeral band.
