A rare French advertising clock, probably from the 1930's.
I have not been able to find any references for this clock other than that Vedette was a leading French clock brand.
Almost certainly this lit up clock would have been on display in a retailers' shop to promote the brand and the retailer.
Definitely a clock to interest a collector of advertising items.
It is really eye catching when it is on the wall.
We have just now fitted 'LED's' to the inside so that it lights up as it would have done in the 1930's. The last photo shows it illuminated.
We have also adapted the original hands to work with a modern quartz movement so you are guaranteed perfect timing.
A spectacular centrepiece.
