Vintage Alarm Clock

I found this vintage clock today at the thrift store for $3.99.
The colour is perfect for our guest bedroom because I have decided to use my rose mirrors and frames in this room. My plan is for a mix of metals and white frames. It was snowing fairly heavily when these photos were taken this afternoon so the photos are a bit dark. Below is a photo of one of the mirrors when I was trying it in the front hallway.
My Mom and Dad always had Big Ben and Westclox alarms like these and I remember Dad sitting on the bed setting the alarm each night. Pretty sure he still uses one. I'm of the radio alarm clock generation so hopefully he can show me how this baby works (IF it works.)
I'm sure this alarm clock will be the first in a new collection. Have you started any new collections lately?

I'm sharing this with...

  1. Hi Elizabeth,
    Well, I WOULD start a collection of beautiful vintage clocks if I ever saw any for $3.99! I've been looking, and all I see are the cheesy plastic things with little plastic mechanisms. Come on people! We need better junk around here!
    Your clock rocks! Nice find. :)
