Just located a Tele-Vision Digital clock/tv lamp. Appears to be swirled catlin[rare]
It has the clear plastic back that focuses the light behind the back to the wall. works perfectly. I would value it at least $45-50.00 just because of it’s condition,and beauty. I do 5-6 Arts/Crafts/Antique shows around Kentucky each year,and sell [refurbushed] electric clocks from the 20’s to the 50’s. I sell about 200 a year. This one might be a keeper,as least until a regular customer takes a real interest in it. The Catlin case is beautiful. The Numechrons have always sold quickly. I just polished out a brass Numerchron with a decorative trim along the bottom. It too is a prize.
I have the 1949 Calliope Clock that match the above picture. Does any body know how much this clock may be worth, if anything? My stamp also says June 1949. I also plugged mine in and it still works. Thanks]]>
I just picked-up from a local yard sale a metal (brass colored) horse that is standing on a wood base and is fully adorn with saddlle, stirrups, bit. etc. It is 12 inches long from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail and 10 inches tall from the top of the base to the tip of the ears. It weighs almost 4 pounds. There is a faint ink stamp that reads: Tele-Vision Clock Corp. of Frankstown Ave. Pittsburgh PA U.S.A. (cannot read exact number address) and has 110 Volts - 60 CY ?
Do you known what year this was made and is this a common item from that time period? I have not been able to find another one like this online. It appears a paper sticker was on the bootm at one time. And why would it have 110 Volts when this has nothing to to do with electricity since it is just a Metal Horse on a wood base? Thanks for any information you can provide.]]>
Hmm… monkey clocks have to be a rare breed, so I’d think that would make it worth a significant amount! Joking aside, I have no idea. They’re certainly rare, and as a result there’s not much of an auction “track record” to help determine value. I wouldn’t be too quick to let it go unless you can determine its real worth… they’re neat!]]>
How much is the monkey clock worth? I also have the identical clock.]]>
In response to the comment ‘The nature of this calliope (steam organ) design is uncertain as it is missing the internals, but may have housed clock-works and/or a light fixture’ the answer is a clock. We just found the exact clock in the basement of my father-in-law’s house. Our’s is complete with the digital clock. WE plugged it in and it still keeps accurate time.
Our’s also has the same label dated 1949.
Where can I get replacement parts for a black panther t.v.lamp???]]>
