Fabulous mid century vintage Syroco Starburst Wall Clock, manufactured by Syracuse Ornamental Company (Syroco) in the 60s. The stylish clock's exterior is made up of "Syrocowood", a specialized & formed wood composite product which is finished in gold paint. Inner clock features a hinged convex glass cover; inside reveals a gold tone metal dial & clock face with Roman numerals at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 placements. Wound manually with a key, the clock mechanism is an eight day, jeweled movement.
The unique style called 'starburst' (as opposed to the more common 'sunburst') is quite rare in that it's rectangular - not circular - and designed to hang in either landscape or portrait position (hooks are mounted for both). Highly coveted, only once in a while are similar clocks available on the Internet.
BONUS: Includes brass winding key (with silk tassel) and original cloth carrying pouch. Dimensions: 18" x 33" wide.
CONDITION: Clock itself is in good working order. Back has a few scratches; this is common due to repositioning or relocating of the unit. Front/display is cosmetically like new with only slight wear/loss of gold gilt finish.
