This vintage magazine advertisement for General Electric clocks is from a 1953 Better Homes And Gardens magazine:
I would like to use it in my kitchen, but it would need to sit on a little shelf, so that it could be plugged into the outlet that is up on the wall above our stove. In the 1940's, they put that outlet into the wall up high so that you could hang a clock up there. We have a teapot clock hanging up there right now, but I love this vintage electric one - and it runs great!
Oh - and I paid less than $4.95 for it!
