Art Deco Flight Clock - Historic Aviation and Aircraft Gifts
Cast in airplane aluminum, created as displays for travel agencies, or gifts to VIP travelers. Some were made by WWII mechanics in their spare time. Memories of a time when flight was still a very hands-on affair. Highly collectable now, originals from the forties and fifties are hard to find. Screaming Spitfires from the Battle of Britain, stately four-engine Constellations, last Hurrahs for the propeller driven aircraft. This flight inspired aluminum masterpiece is charming and adorable in its nostalgic chic and toy-like appeal.
