This nautical-themed desktop clock features a lovely tropical scene with a glistening surface and bright colors. Above, the rotary-style numbers are enclosed in a clear plastic cover labeled "numechron." An embossed manufacturer's mark on the reverse reads, "TELE-VISION CLOCK CORP. of America - 7240 Frankstown Ave. Pittsburgh, PA., U.S.A. Pat. No. 1990645 - SHIP WHEEL." A manufacturer's sticker on the underside reads, "Model No 951 - Date Nov 54 - numechron Electric Clock." Condition of the 10-1/2" x 6" x 3-1/2" metal frame is about EX with minor paint chipping to the five hand-holds of the "ship wheel" design. The central illustration and rotary numbers rate EX/MT, and the clock appears to be fully operable.
