Maker and Role
Kienzle Clocks, Manufacturer
Large round alarm clock, chrome-plated with a white dial and black Arabic numerals. There are 2 hands - hour hand and minute hand - plus a seconds hand just above '6'. There is also another small dial just below '12' which is numbered 1 ~ 12 and has a small indicator. This is the alarm setting arrangement. The clock has a pair of ornate legs protruding from the sides and a large bell on top. The bell has a bail on its dome so that the clock can be carried around. The back has 2 winding keys and a slider switch for regulating the movement. There are 2 holes which would have been for the knobs that turn the hands and alarm hand. Both knobs are missing. The clock glass is also missing and the clock is not in working order.
