Black George Nelson Vintage 1st Production Wall Ball Clock
Here is a 1st edition ball clock, designed by George Nelson and made by the Howard Miller Clock company. The clock was designed and produced in 1949 and its character of age is fantastic to see. Even rarer is a piece with all its components.
The Howard Miller clock company is synonymous with the great many designs from George Nelson and associates. Howard Miller was the brother of Herman Miller, the furniture company Nelson went on to be head of design during the mid century golden age.
Excellent piece with only age related character.
Unbelievably this full electronic clock still has its original wall socket backing plate and corresponding plug. The backing socket is hard wired into your mains electricity, sitting flush to the wall, the clock then slots in with its original plug. (If for EU use please ensure correct electric rating is used)
Working first edition ball clocks by George Nelson for Howard Miller are very rare indeed. Even more rare is one found with all its parts and in full electronic working order! Pieces such as these are always high end investments as well as first class usable time pieces.
