    Radium was first used on clock dials in the very early 1900's, and commonly used until the late 1950's. It is therefore difficult to date a clock by the inclusion of radium on the dials to a timeframe any closer than that. In my limited experience, it appears that your clock dates to about the mid 1930s or so, but this is just my best guess. I was unable to locate this particular model clock in any of my reference books.

    Best,
