eBay watch: Original 1950s George Nelson sunburst wall clock by Howard Miller

Nelson_clock

A real gem has landed on eBay, this original 1950s George Nelson wall clock by Howard Miller. But there is one small problem with it.

However, yes, an original, not a reproduction. It's down as model 2022, a sunburst-style clock with 12 tapered rosewood rays, plus a drum-shaped metal dial with screw-on back plate. The entire thing has an overall diameter of 18.5 inches.

Condition is described as 'excellent', although the hands and mechanism 'appear to have been replaced' and don't seem to work. A clock expert should be able to sort it out. Anyway, right now it's just 99p – so one to keep an eye on.
