|Telechron Model 3H91 "Glamour"|
|The Telchron model 3H91 was
called the "Glamour", and was made in the early 1940's.
The movement was mounted in a piece of translucent "Pedrara
Imported Onyx", according to a sticker on the back. This
example has much more veining that many that you see, and is quite
attractive, especially in a sunny location.
Telechron made clocks similar to this one using a slab of Catalin plastic instead of onyx. Catalin was originally marketed as synthetic substitute for onyx or alabaster, and it is ironic that the plastic version is worth more to a collector than one made from the real thing.
