These sold out last year, but thankfully, the wonderful Kat Klock range by Shag is back on the racks and available to order.
They were on my list to feature last year just before the initial sell out and I was gutted that I couldn’t share these. A mix of a design classic and one of my favourite modern-day artists. What’s not to love about them?
That design classic I mention is the Kit-Kat Clock, something I wrote about in the earliest days of the Retro To Go website. That was 2006. Where does the time go?
The Kit-Kat is something of a US design icon, which amazingly dates back all the way to 1932, with the bow tie the only major change. That was added in the 1950s. The rolling eyes, the wagging tail, the smile and the clock. A winning combination for the best part of 90 years.
So a tweak of that design is always going to work. Not that this is just a tweak. This is a brand new design that takes inspiration from the original. This one uses Shag’s distinctive cat design, keeping a similar layout for the clock and of course, the wagging tail. Battery operated like the original too, so no unsightly wires either. Note that the bow tie on this one is loose, so you just need to stick it where you want it.
You can buy one directly from Shag’s own store for $199 until the next batch of stock runs down. Worth getting for something interesting and retro for your walls, as well as a potential future collectors’ piece. Shag is always an artist in demand.
