Exceptional Original Orchid Pink Catalin Lackner Neon Clock
Exceedingly rare Lackner Neon-Glo Art Deco 'Dulcy' in marbled translucent orchid catalin clock made in the 30's and 40's in Cincinnati, Ohio. The orchid color found on this example is so rare not many know of its existence, only two.. The "Dulcy' made by Lackner is the only catalin case clock that lites-up with a neon giving the cabinet + dial a beautiful warm glow, setting it apart from other clocks manufactured in the 1940s. Distinctive Art Deco features of the clock include the abstract numerals, streamlined ribbed metal trim + stepped skyscraper design. This orchid pink Lackner has a beautiful gloss to the case and is highly marbleized with tones of, orchid, white + clear that add depth to the catalin....this is truly a unique piece.
Cabinet has no cracks, burns or repairs. It has a tiny chip on the rear top center of cabinet that is difficult to discern and a small hairline on the bottom caused by the shrinking of the catalin cabinet around the metal back, which is common for Lackner catalin body clocks. Clock glows a warm pink/orchid when lit that is absolutely stunning.

Clock measures approximately: 6.5" wide by 6.75" high by 3" deep. There is no guarantee of accuracy with it keeping time. If you wish to use it daily, it is recommended you have a qualified professional service it, as it may need lubrication and calibration.
