This wonderful vintage starburst clock was our ‘star buy’ at yesterday’s auction.
Also referred to as sunburst clocks, this one has a brushed metal face with a radial pattern of wooden star/sun rays.
Produced by the very good maker Seth Thomas in the 1960s, it wasn’t cheap – but it’s a great example. The condition is superb and it’s keeping perfect time.
The clock seems very happy in our bedroom. We know we shouldn’t be keeping shop stock, but it won’t do any harm to look at it for a while.
The modern, stylised shape and brushed metal is softened by the warm wood, providing a great link between old & new when going for that eclectic look.
We already have an example of this type of clock in our top floor lounge/bedroom.
It dates from the same period, but this one is made by Metamec.
This one was also bought as shop stock – two years ago!!
