This is a spectacular mid-century modern wall clock by Welby from 1959. The clock is made from solid brass in a musical instrument banjo design. The clock has an enamel and brass face with roman numerals and stylized black hands. The front is made from curved glass with a brass rim and tiny latch to keep it in place. The clock is a wind-up and says ‘Welby — 8 Day’ on the face and ‘Made in Germany’ on the back. The clock is quite long with a wired ‘string’ design meant to mimic a banjo complete with a suspended brass chain.
The clock has a hook in the back for hanging. It measures 7.75″ across the face x 35″ tall and is in excellent condition. It keeps accurate time. We wound the clock with one of our standard wind-up keys, but the new owner will need to purchase their own key. This wonderful, musical instrument clock by Welby is the epitome of MCM style and is certain to make an impressive statement in any room of your home.
