vintage clock-wallTic toc, it’s times for an uploader — and this weekend’s theme is: Vintage wall clocks. I have lived in my 1951 house for 12 years now, and golly, all this time, we have not had a mid century wall clock up anywhere. I guess the Retro Decorating Gods were waiting to serve me up the perfect one, and a few weeks ago, they finally did. It’s a made in the USA Burwood clock. The clock isn’t “dear”, I think, meaning it’s not worth a whole lot of money. But it suited my space perfectly — gives my modern traditional dining room / living room the right dosage of Atomic Zing. Above: Reader Shelly’s vintage clock wall also is a visual treat. Check out all 331 amazing vintage wall clocks uploaded by readers.

    I love that someone else has my clock radio (I have the taupe/cream Motorola)! Too cool! BTW, that radio sounds awesome; the speaker packs a punch!

  2. Jay says:

    Kate, I have the same dilemma. 10 years on and I am still waiting for the RR gods to deliver unto me, a small square clock for the soffit over the the kitchen sink. There’s even a clock outlet.

    Pam, do I score points with the gods for shamelessly plugging the site? I toured Manitoga last Friday and the guide gives you a short form to fill out. One of the questions is “How did you find out about Manitoga?” RETRORENOVATION.COM

    Seriously? That was my big Goodwill find! While I liked the clock, it wasn’t what I was looking for (though I knew it had some value), so I just flipped it on ebay for just over $200 bucks.
    Still a pretty good return on my investment!

    I have a barometer — small banjo style — that fits with this ethos. Perhaps a small upload on that functional and ubiquitous wall ornament.

    Bestill my heart! I did not know there was a store like hutch in Omaha! Now that our kitchen is done, a hutch is next on my list!

    All of these clocks are wonderful!

    Aww, my clock didn’t make it into this beautiful collection. I thought it went through!
    Anyway, mine is a rounded trapezoidal ceramic clock. White with a gold edge and a light blue rim inside of the gold. The maker is Kienzle. It seems German. I bought it at a thrift store in Sweden. Still need to get it working though.

  7. Jean says:

    Oh, how these are taunting me. When I began to imagine my mid-century kitchen, I thought that this vast empty space above the stove would be PERFECT for a starbust-shaped wall clock, though I had no idea if they actually existed. I was delighted to find that they were ubiquitous, but I’m kinda broke, having just graduated from college, and the ones that I take to on ebay always pass the $100-mark and jump out of my price range for the moment. Sigh. Some day soon, hopefully. So many beautiful ones.

    Unfortunately, it’s closed now and I can’t upload a picture of my nice square clock with red plaid background. 🙁
