Telechron "Quacker" Plaskon Bird Electric Alarm Clock by Belle Kogan
Rare + Whimsical Art Deco Telechron Belle Kogan Design Clock
Rare Art Deco Telechron "Quacker" Electric Alarm Clock by Industrial designer Belle Kogan. The whimsical design made of canary yellow Plaskon body with a deep orange Plaskon beak, and painted eyes that seem always to be watching you is absolutely stunning. This is one of the few true novelty clocks made by Telechron, and it is one of the most desirable. This clock was featured in the Telechron catalogs from 1935 through 1939. The "Quacker" model 7F63 was the alarm clock version of the similar "Smug" clock. Kogan, one of the first American female industrial designers, was an early pioneer in the use of plastics, and her clocks are collector's items today. This beautiful clock is all original with no cracks, chips or repairs to the Plaskon. Clock is in working condition and the alarm function also works properly and has a nice bell/buzzer sound. Power cord has been replaced with a period correct cloth covered cord and the original ivory Plaskon plug was reused. This table clock measures approximately: 6" high by 5.75" wide 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.
