Middlebury Catalin Clock 

A round clock case flanked by two rods or spheres was a standard design theme of the Deco era, one that can be seen in the the GE Julep and Heralder clocks, and a number of others.  This one is a particularly nice interpretation of that theme, and was made by the Middlebury Electric Clock Company, of Macomb, Illinois, sometime in the late 1930's (the movement design was patented in 1938, 2,133,052).  The case is a ring of yellow Catalin accented by threads of black, which is a very unusual color combination, and a copper bezel.  The two spheres and the base are jet black Catalin.
