This model was sold by both General Electric and Telechron.  558  "The Geneva"

Medium sized tambour type for mantel or shelf.  Case of mahogany, Spanish high-lighted, maple burl panel.  An attractive clock in any room.  The gold finished dial is 4 1/2 inches in diameter.  Its height is 7 3/8 inches by 17 3/16 inches wide and  3 7/8 inches deep.

Telechron and GE begain selling Geneva togther but Telechron gave it up by 1931.  G-E sold them in dribs and drabs for the next few years.  In the Telechron sales record we learn: "Remarks: Balance unbuilt assigned to Telechron line and built up with Telechron dials in 1936." --and for only $6.50!

back to the Dawn of Decoto the 559 Durham



The early Telechrons came like the right one but my guess is the left one just has alternate hands and isn't a 1936 Geneva.  Maybe not...
