    Don't know where this case came from, maybe custom made. Solid oak and very heavy.

    Very interesting case. Does it look like a Standard Electric factory installation?

    No, the movement was installed by the previous owner, he bought the case with no movement, I think the dial was made for the case, it's larger than the usual standard master clock.

    Most interesting custom styled case. The quarter-sawn oak was obviously hand selected by the cabinet maker, obviously very professionally done.

    In the photo, I see a similarly fine -figured oak clock reflected in the subject clock's glass. But the reflected image is of a different clock with a different styled face.
    Is the image an illusion ?

    Thanks for sharing the photo.

    the clock in the reflection is a 50's standard master clock.
