When I stop at a garage sales, I am always looking for the unique, the different, the unusual. This item caught my eye, and I bent down to look at it closer. Immediately the owner came by and said, “That is a vintage Zales clock set. I don’t know anything about it, but it has a number on the back. I will make you a great deal.” I hadn’t seen anything else, but then I saw the other one.
Clock? I saw this one, but no clock. The owner went around the table and pulled out the clock.
Ok, this isn’t my style. The ornate look, brass, and the red carpet background. I said I wasn’t interested. However, I must have been the only one who had even looked at it. The owner kept saying she would sell it to me at a great price. She kept lowering the price. Finally when she said $4, I took this home with me.
I haven’t been able to find anything out about it. It has Empire Art Products Co from Glendale, NY 953 on the back.
I am not sure what I am going to do with it, but it is in my garage. So would you have bought it?
