Found on EBay – Oviatt’s

oviatt_clock_ebay This unusual Oviatt item has already been sold but it’s worth noting because it’s quite unusual.

Marc Chevalier says: The elusive "Alexander & Oviatt" Swiss clock. I've seen three others identical to it: all were once owned by James Oviatt's nephews, who worked as managers of the store. I was told that they were commissioned by James Oviatt in 1928 or '29 as gifts for his nephews. Each clock is faced in ivory, and the images are hand-painted. Oddly enough, the artist has painted a completely fictional carillon of bells on the top.

This item sold on EBay for  $200.
