Description
Clock - shelf. Round clock with a 2-tone silver dial and black Arabic numerals. There are only 2 hands - a minute and an hour hand. This is a mechanical, hand-wound clock encased in a wooden case. The case has a rounded top with straight vertical sides. On the reverse, can be seen 2 winding keys, one knurled knob for turning the hands, one slider switch on top, another slider switch at the bottom for regulating the movement and a yellow dial (just above the hands turning knob) marked 1 ~ 12 in a counter-clockwise fashion, but with an arrow indicating a clockwise motion of the knurled knob sitting in the centre of the yellow dial. There is a pointer protruding from this knurled knob. This is probably an alarm setting arrangement.
