Product Description

"Presenting the "Maltz Baird Advertising Clock Collection"

As always, Astorlive endeavors to bring you the “Best of Time”, including the rarest and most unusual watch and clock collectibles. We are honored to be able to introduce to you the “Maltz Baird Clock Collection”. This is one of the rarest and most important clock collections in the world today. Consisting of many 1 of 1 or "only" examples known.

The Baird clock has always been at the top end and the most prized of the Antique Advertising Clock world. These clocks were only produced from 1887 to 1897 for various companies to Advertise their products, not many original clocks survived.

In the world of Baird Clock Collecting, emerged an expert collector; Mr. Jerry Maltz, who sought after the best of the best, all original clocks. For over 40 years he searched the world over, always looking for that “never seen before” Baird clock. In 1998 he wrote a book on the subject of Baird Advertising Clocks and included photographs and stories of some of his rarest and special clocks. He has given many talks and seminars on the subject.

In what we believe to be an opportunity of a lifetime, you now have a chance to own one of these beautiful 120 year old clocks, right out of the pages of Mr. Maltzs’ Book. All of the clocks offered come from the Maltz Collection. Each clock that is featured in the book will include a copy of “Baird Advertising Clocks”, personally signed by Mr. Maltz to complete your treasure.

Astorlive has a Baird clock in its private collection, we have to admit it always make us smile when we hear that 120 year old baby ticking away… Companies like Coca Cola knew what they were doing when they ordered their Coke Clock from Baird clock co in the late 1800's and sent it to vendors selling a 100 gallons of coke 120 years later, that clock is still selling cokes & telling time….. WOW, a true piece of “TIME” History….

Description:

~ Domestic Scouring Soap ~

As Quoted from the Book, "Baird Advertising Clocks" by Jerry Maltz:

The DOMESTIC SCOURING SOAP clock has the word "Somers Clock Co., 304 Broadway" printed on the dial.  In the opinion of the author, these clocks were made by Baird.  Maltese hands are found on clocks with the Somers name on the dials.  Almost all of the clocks made in Montreal, Canada, and Plattsburgh, New York had spade hands."

This clock can be found on pages 52 & 53 of "Baird Advertising Clocks".

**This Clock is one of several in the Maltz Collection that the collector had never seen duplicated over the course of its 40 year procurement!

There are a few imperfections that add to the character of this 120 year old clock, including patina, and some marred edges.  The bottom door of this clock has a large crack, as shown in photos, as well as in the Baird Book.  See photos for detail. Key and pendulum are included with each clock. All of the clocks from this collection wind and run; however, as with all 120 year old clocks, their timing may not be accurate and they can be temperamental.
