General Electric Refrigerator Clock

This clock was given away by GE to buyers of its early 1930's "Monitor Top" electric refrigerators.  Since GE was a part-owner of Telechron, naturally, Telechron made their clocks.

The clock was housed in a die-cast metal case.  It is a heavy clock at just over 5 pounds and it stands about 8 inches high.  They are often found with damaged or missing legs, and the paint is rarely intact (the clock shown has been repainted).

GE was eager to note a design similarity between their clocks and their refrigerators.  The compressor and clock motors were both sealed in oil baths which gave both great longevity.
