Description

Patented June 16, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CLOCK Application August 9, 1935, Serial No. 35,507

4 Claims.

This invention relates to a clock of novel structure and pleasing appearance.

An object of the invention is to provide a clock in which modern lines and novel eifeots are achieved through new and effective means of structure.

Another object is to provide a clock of the kind described which may be produced very simply and efficiently and at a minimum of cost.

These and other objects are attained by the means described herein and disclosed in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. l is a front elevational View of a clock constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view taken substantially on the line 2-2 of Fig. l, the clock unit proper being shown conventionally.

The effectiveness and utility of glass in the production of various types of devices has been in the drawing, consists of an integral sheet of the clock body glass 5, prefer- 8, which is to support the clock unit, may be conveniently observed.

Provided centrally on the front surface of section 8, i. e., on the surface thereof remote from the base I, is an opaque clock face 9, preferably dark in color, and provided around its edge with clock face numerals I0. These numerals may be formed of a coloring material providing suitable contrast with the clock face 9 so as to stand out distinctly. In the present disclosure, these numerals are shown as out, such as by sand blasting into the front face of the section 8, as shown at H. The sand blasting results in producing numerals which have a translucent appearance rather than transparent, to provide suitable contrast with the clock face 9 and likewise with the transparent section 8 of the clock body.

Attached to the rear surface of the section 8, and disposed behind the opaque clock face 9, is a suitable clock mechanism I2 which is invisible from the front of the clock. Associated with the clock face 9 and operatively connected with the clock mechanism i2 is a pair of clock hands l3 which may be constructed of such material and design as to harmonize with the remainder of the structure to produce a harmonious unit. The hands, for example, may be formed of polished chromium so as to contrast effectively with the dark opaque face 9.

The rear edge of the base 1 may have attached thereto, such as by cementing, a glass block l4 providing a stabilizing and counter weight.

It is apparent that the clock above described may be produced very efficiently and at a minimum of manufacturing cost and that, at the same time, an article of distinctive modern design and appearance may be produced.

What is claimed is:

1. As a new article of manufacture, a clock comprising a body consisting of an integral sheet of transparent glass formed to provide a base adapted to be disposed flat on a supporting surface and an upright section supported by said base, an opaque clock face provided on the upright section, a clock mechanism attached to the upright section behind the clock face, and clock hands associated with the clock face and operatively connected with the clock mechanism.

2. As a new article of flat on a supporting surother section forming an upright supported by the base, an opaque clock face on said upright section and visible from the side remote from said base, a clock mechanism attached to the upright section behind the clock face and on the surface of said section adjacent said base, and clock hands associated with the clock face and operatively connected with the clock mechanism.

3. As a new article of manufacture, a clock comprising a body consisting of an integral sheet of transparent glass bent transversely to provide two sections disposed relative to one another at an angle of less than ninety degrees, one of said sections forming a base adapted to be disposed fiat on a supporting surface and the other section 10 tively connected with the clock mechanism.

4. As a new article of manufacture, a clock comprising a body consisting of an integral sheet of transparent glass bent to provide two sections angularly disposed relative to one another whereby the bent sheet is adapted to he stood up on a supporting surface with at least one of said sections disposed in an upstanding position, an opaque clock face provided on said upstanding section, a clock mechanism attached to the upright section behind the clock face, and clock hands associated with the clock face and opera- 10 tively connected with the clock mechanism.
