THESE ARE FLIP OVER MESSAGE ADVERTISING CLOCKS THAT ARE RUN BY A COUPLE OF CLOCK MOTORS. ONE FOR THE FLIP MESSAGES, AND ONE FOR THE CLOCK. THESE SIGN/CLOCKS WERE USED IN CAFE’S, DINERS, SHOPS, AND GARAGES TO ADVERTISE LOCAL ESTABLISHMENTS AND BUSINESSES. FEW SURVIVED OVER THE YEARS AND THOSE THAT DID, HAD THE NEON BROKEN OR THE AD CARDS WERE MISSING OR DID NOT FLIP OR WORK ANYMORE. THIS ONE KEEPS GOOD TIME, THE SECOND HAND HAS SOME RED PAINT FLAKING OFF. THE NUMBERS ON THE CLOCK ARE BACK PAINTED ON THE GLASS AND ARE FLAKING OFF SOME ALSO AS SEEN IN PHOTOS. THE BACK PANEL PAPER INFO SHEET IS ALSO STILL ON THE BACK AS SEEN. THIS SIGN DOES NOT HUM LOUD LIKE OTHERS HAVE A TENDENCY TO DO. THIS ONE HAS SOME SPLITS OR CRACKS IN THE WOOD CASE AS SHOWN ON THE LOWER SIDES OF THE MESSAGE OPENING LOWER PART. IT HAS THE TYPICAL SCUFFS/SCRAPES/SCRATCHES LIKE ANYTHING THIS OLD WOULD HAVE. IT IS ESTIMATED TO HAVE BEEN MADE AT LEAST BACK IN THE 50’S, BUT EXACT DATE IS NOT KNOWN. NEON IS BLUISH COLOR AND IS VERY BRIGHT. THIS ONE IS WORKING WELL. THESE WERE BUILT BY THE AD CLOCK COMPANY OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. IT IS AN ANTIQUE AND NOT A MODERN DAY CLOCK AND MECHANISM. IT IS NOT BRAIN SURGERY, BUT BASIC MECHANICAL KNOWLEDGE IS LIKELY NEEDED. IF WE COULD DO IT….. MOST LIKELY YOU CAN TOO. BUT JUST WANT TO MAKE YOU AWARE. 23.5 BY 12 BY 7 INCHES.
