    Well, the latest patent number 1768386 was granted June 24, 1930, but I see little else to give a clue. I will move this to Electric Horology in case someone might have a better idea.

    I take it back. The design patent, 118835, which I missed at first, is actually later. It was granted February 6, 1940. So, some time after that, I presume.
