Large musical alarm clock/table clock, with its key to wind it up, made of turned and carved wood and brass decorations from the early 20th century, in good condition and complete with all its decorations. Bronze mechanical movement, working very well, with alarm clock setting on a small dial (see photo). On the back door, labels for use and adjustment instructions, guarantee conditions (unfortunately outdated) of the Comptoir Français d'Horlogerie and Bijouterie rue de Rivoli in Paris. Round dial with dual display: Roman in black up to XII and Arabic in red up to 24. Waking up with music, on a song from 1912 "I know a blonde" by Harry Fragson, who was one of the most famous songwriters of the 1900s, born in London in 1869 and died in Paris in 1913 (national funeral) from a gunshot wound that was fired by his father during a quarrel. In addition, I give you the words of this song that was well known at that time. Carefully tracked shipment.
