Remember all those 1930's tambour clocks? Great big things with inlaid wood and sweeping lines. This all we got in 1945. Less than a foot long, it was stained to look like mahogany but some of these are walnut and some are something else.
Above is the back of the 2nd of these I've refinished. The metal dogtag was sometimes placed on the underside but I like it right on the back. This is a solid block of wood except for the feet. Interestingly, (at least on this example) the feet were mahogany. Despite it's low model number, this is a post-War model and came with a rubber cord. I don't have many friends among Ebay sellers anyway and I lost any chance with the guy who was selling one of these with "its original cloth cord". I never did get him to change that ad but I did have lots of fun pestering him. The Gracewood name would turn up one more time before the end.
