November 3, 2011My Retro Mid-Century 1950s and 1960s Starburst, Teak and Brass Clocks!
By Sara In AZ
I saw Uncle Atom’s recent post on his FAB vintage clock collection and I thought it would be fun to share my vintage clock collection with y’all too!
I got all of my clocks a long time ago, before the whole mid-century craze, so prices were a whole lot cheaper back then – and no one really wanted them at that time either! Go figure!!!
Our first clock is actually the biggest one we have! It measures a whopping 3 feet across and 3 feet tall! Eeks!!! It is made by Robert Shaw from the Lux Time Division. I got this from an estate sale I found by accident one day. The house was SO sweet, with a full-on vintage kitchen with all turquoise appliances. I was in love with that kitchen! I believe I paid $10 for this clock.
The next clock is a Seth Thomas Starburst/Sunburst clock. This clock I got by complete accident, I swear! hee! We had gone to a house to look at some Heywood Wakefield and I saw this clock hanging on the wall. I inquired if the clock was for sale and what do you know – it was! Sold! I paid $15 for this clock.
This clock I actually found in a thrift store probably 10 years ago. I have never seen this funky triangular design before and I thought it was pretty cool. This clock is marked ‘Welby’. I paid $9 for this clock.
We cannot forget my Mad Men Sunbeam clock, I did the post on here. I picked this up at the end of an estate sale for $10.
Lastly, the ubiquitous teak Starburst clock. This clock is marked ‘Westclox’ and I paid around $25 for it.
