This clock has seen little or no use in the last 70 years, it has either been in a storage box or in an enclosed display case all or most of its life. A very special 1944 Sessions Electric table alarm clock that is in near mint condition and working correctly. Wooden case has its original finish that is next to flawless. Movement is working accurately and quietly. We have put a new cord on it for safety reasons and cleaned and oiled the motor. There are 3 weather instruments mounted on a solid copper striated flange - a thermometer, relative humidity hygrometer and a barometer (center). The instruments are marked "Made in Germany" and would be pre-WWII - and this would probably explain the wooden case, which is black lacquer on wood, with a distinct machine age or skyscraper design. Clock, alarm, and thermometer are all working. I dont know the first thing about weather instruments so cant comment on the functionality of hygrometer or barometer. We have not removed the instruments from the case - they all look excellent, and the glasses are all good, with either a small scratch or possibly piece of dust or hair on the inside of the barometer glass.
Movement is Model AF, one of the most dependable movements in the Sessions line, and 60 cycle, 110v, 25w. Clock is equipped with an alarm the works - however this does not appear to be a sleep alarm, as it is not particularly loud. This was more than likely used as an office alarm, notifying the user to switch activity. Patent dates on movement range from 11/1933-July 1944.
We have polished but not lacquered the copper instruments and they contrast well with the wooden case. This clock is simply beautiful. Where in the world would you ever find a running clock in this condition? This is the only Sessions electric in this style I have ever seen - this one comes from my personal collection and has been well loved for many years.
