This classic clock is called a SWEPT WING mantel clock with its great design that was popular in the mid-1950's. This Sessions brand clock was made by one of the most respected clock companies of the time.

This particular clock was originally electric but the electric motor finally gave out so I have converted it to an enclosed battery operated quartz clock. While it is sad to lose some of the originality of this wonderful clock, doing this gives a superior benefit of being absolutely portable and this clock can be placed on any fireplace mantel or wall shelf and it will operate on its own. All the care it needs is resetting the clock on Day-Light Savings time changes and replacing the battery (usually once per year).

The set dial and battery are easily accessible by removing the 2 screws on the rear of the clock and then the whole clock face comes out the front so you can reset the clock or replace the battery. A person could cut a hole in the rear of the clock so batteries can be replaced without removing the screws, but I thought this might be defacing this lovely old clock so leave that task up to you if you care to improve the access. Doing this keeps the clock looking good with its originality with the benefit of modern day time keeping. The dial is still the original dial and it is looking very good.

The walnut wood case is in good condition although it has some nicks and dings here and there. This is a good looking clock for its age and any noticeable wear adds to its charm for sure.
