Fabulous Antique Flashlight/Alarm/Bank Clock

This unique clock was made by the Darche Mfg. Co. of Chicago Illinois circa 1910. This may well have been a travelling alarm clock owned by a well to do gentleman or lady. It serves three different functions. First it is a clock which will give you the time during the day. Second, it features a flashlight feature. A dry cell battery goes into the tower on theright side of the clock. A cord attached to the battery in the back has a wooden bulb with a button on it. At night, the owner would have this bulb by the pillow. If they needed to know what time it was, they only had to push the button and the light bulb over the clock face would light up to give them the time. The upper dial of the clock face shows AM & PM. Both sets of hands move easily

The next feature was the alarm clock. This is set on the right side tower and consists of a bell and clanger. When the alarm went off the owner would simply move the switch located on the bottom panel to stop the alarm.

Last but not least is a bank. Located in the left tower is a bank with a slot for coins. Below that is the door with a small combination lock. The door is functioning but the lock does not work anymore. Stamped on the bank door is "Fireproof Safety Deposit"

It is stamped "Pat. July 12, 1910, Others Pending" on the bottom left panel. Across the top arch of the handle is stamped "Made by Darche MFG Co. Chicago"

The clock mechanism is not working. As I am not a clock smith I will leave this to the buyer. The light bulb appear to be ok but a dry cell battery would be required to make this flashlight function work.

This would make a great addition to someones clock collection or just a great conversation piece! It measures 12 1/2 inches long by 5 1/2" wide by 7 3/4 inches tall. It is a solid clock and weighs in at almost 9 pounds. Shipping will be $10.00 to the lower 48 states. Alaska and Hawaii residents need to add $6.00.
