453 The "Constance" (above) & 453-A "Denmore"
The clock for the business end of the home--the kitchen. Case, moulded, duco finish--white ivory, pastel green or French gray.
was a DuPont trade name for auto paint. If you ask me, Telechron
could have put it to better use. I like the natural bakelite on "Denmore"
(below) much better. Both had the weird reset signal you were supposed
to set through the window in the front. Most of these little levers
broke off which is fine by me. Works better without it. So
many of these clocks are found without their sweep hands that there's debate
about whether some left the factory that way. Could be but we'll
never know for sure.
