This Manning Bowman skyscraper clock was produced for only 3-4 years, between 1930 and 1933. Manning Bowman miscalculated in introducing a line of high end clocks right after the 1929 stock market crash and the line was not successful. Manning Bowman made the metal cases, but purchased the movements for their clock line from Hammond. The skyscraper clock has a butterscotch Bakelite base and upper panel and a black Bakelite lower panel. This clock is 15 inches high without the top finial (which is missing). This example is silver plated, but the clock was also available with chrome plated body. The spin-to-start movement works, but is hard to start. New rayon cord.
I do not work on clocks other than to replace cords but will accept returns if it stops working within 30 days.
