This morning I decided to check out this clock I bought on Friday at an estate sale. I really liked it but was not real happy that it didn't run and I couldn't see how it could possibly run.
This is unusual for an old GE clock. However, when you know that the house it came from was occupied by an artist that painted every wall in the house a different color (and I'm not talking soft colors!!), painted furniture odd colors and then added his/her own touch (such as a pink flamingo on a turquoise chest of drawers), you can understand that this isn't a GE clock out of the box. It's one that was repurposed by someone who thinks outside the box! I even think they painted the hands of this clock turquoise to match the original numbers.
Here's the back. All indications told me it was once an electric clock. But once I removed the back I discovered that the hands were run by a more recent clock battery unit you can by at any craft store. The battery was dead, so I replaced it and . . . the clock works!! Whew! I thought it was a loss for me!
Another nice piece I bought last week. This is just beautiful!! You can tell that the person who painted it couldn't see well because the edges are fuzzy. BUT!! I love the softness of the edges and this whole plate in general. It's headed for the wall in my bedroom.
