This manual wind up alarm clock was manufactured by the Western Clock Company between 1927-1932. It was manufactured in Petersborough, Canada and sadly very little is known about the Canadian Westclox factory.
Westclox Baby Ben De Luxe specs:
- Height: 3 1/8 inches
- Width (base): 3 1/16 inches
- Dial minute track diameter: 2 1/16 inches
- Weight: 12 ounces
- Polished Nickel Finish
The front of the clock face has darkened considerably. Other than that it works good, ticks and the alarm does ring when set. It had belonged to my Great Uncle George who passed away in the mid-eighties.
And If you enjoy reading about clocks, I contributed to a clock with history to Little sister Checking the Time on the Star of the East blog. Go and read this blog. It fabulous. Back in October 2008 I was commissioned by Esther and Estella to do some design work for them to.
The Baby Ben clock is listed in the shop!
