Waterbury Clock Co. “Pearl” night clock, ca. 1914. This clock has a translucent dial (called “Opal” in the catalog description) and is meant to be mounted on a gas burner, so it is lit from behind; it can also stand alone on a shelf or mantel or be mounted on a wall bracket without a gas burner outlet. The dial is 5.5 inches in diameter; note the crack across the center. The hands are as shown in the catalog illustration from 1914 (Ly, Waterbury Clocks & Watches, Vol. 1, page 486). It winds in the back but is fully wound and not running; it is a 1-day clock. I don’t see the Waterbury name or logo anywhere. You can find a few of these on LiveAuctioneers, search for “milk glass clock”. Prices range from $110-$400, but I’ll start this one at $50. $50-$100.
