Morning Roses Alarm Clock
The first mechanical alarm clock was patented in France in 1847. Production ceased at the onset of WWII when factories were converted to war efforts. As clocks broke, workers were late for their shifts and "emergency clocks" were produced with permission of the government. Radio alarms soon rivaled the two-bell classic that endures today.
Creamy roses rendered by 19th c. artist Paul DeLongpre underlie the illuminated face. Ideal for guest rooms.
- Requires one AA battery (not included).

I love my new old clock! It is just as shown in the photograph and will be a lovely addition to my guest bedroom.

This is such a charming clock. It looks absolutely adorable on my night table that I painted with blue chalk paint several years ago. It has a pleasant tick tick tick, not too loud, and rings loud enough to wake me. There's a button to push on the back to see the time in the dark. Very pretty, very convenient. Alas, it is not as well made as an earlier model - the materials feel flimsier and the light up button seems to be in the wrong place. Still 4 starsfor looks/function.

Attractive design. Looks nice on my desk, a little larger than I expected. Keeping good time. The nightlight feature doesn't stay on, shows on the left side of dial only when button is held down. The alarm will definitely wake a person!

I am happy with this clock. It is pretty and exactly what I was hoping it would be. It is loud, you won't sleep through this alarm! -

This clock is beautiful, and I love how it looks on my nightstand. A bonus is that there is a button that can be pushed that lights up the face of the clock so it can be read in the dark. The only complaint I have about the clock is that the ticking is pretty loud, so if that would bother you, this would not be the clock for you, at least not right next to your bed.
