The "Lorraine" was named for the famous French province and was inspired by the innumerable Gothic cathedrals throughout this section of France. While the "Lorraine" is Gothic in general appearance it is more properly called "eclectic". The columns on the front are Colonial as well as the ornamentation. However, this combination of the Gothic and the Colonial blend pleasingly to make one of the most beautiful models in the Telechron line of clocks. The pointed arch is of course a strictly Gothic feature. The "Lorraine" has a handsome gold dial with large clear Arabic numerals. The dial is very pleasingly set out by maple burl panels above and below.

I don't know if all the Telechron versions were that pecan-color or even if they were called Lorraine.  I can tell you they're pooty rare.
