Original Classic O'Keefe & Merritt Stove Top Working Shade Light & Working Timer. "TIC, TIC, TIC... DING!" Mounts to the top of your rear backsplash panel.
As with all of our vintage stove clocks - we have totally dissasemble this timer/light. The base plate, is heavy cast and has been re-chromed. The white timer housing is porcelain enamel and in very nice shiny used condition. The timer lettering is also in very nice used condition, with some normal wear. We have painted the shade and the shade support stand with high heat white enamel - it also is bright and shiny. The shade 'wrap a round' has also been re-chromed - the light glass is clear and in good used condition. The side light switch is new. We recommend re-wiring to be on the safe side. A new tubular light bulb will be included.
This is a wonderful piece and very rare.

These vintage clocks most always need continuing tinkering to keep them working. It is for "tinkerers, restorers, collectors, and appreciators" of vintage Americana and I believe with the proper expertise and patience, anything is possible
"NEW CHROME" When we use this term, this means we at GrapeVineSally have had the part/s rechromed by our professionals with decades of experience. Our chrome shop is among the best in Los Angeles. When one thinks SoCal vintage hot rods & classic cars - think our chrome shop. It costs a little more, but we prefer to only work with the best. It also means the chrome is new and has never been used. If a part is used in any way we will not categorize it as NEWLY CHROMED. All New Chromed parts are original vintage parts.
