Gumball Machine Wall Clock
This wall clock Gumball Machine is made of several layers of wood, painted high quality acrylic paint and a piece of acrylic glass. Stainless steel elements are used in the construction of this clock model.
While making the design of a new clock we were inspired by a vending machine for stick or block shaped gum were seen as early as 1888, the first machines to carry actual gumballs were not seen until 1907. Patented in 1923, the Norris Manufacturing Company produced their "Master" line of chrome gumball machines during the 1930s. These machines could accept either pennies or nickels. Founded in 1934, the Ford Gum and Machine Company of Akron, New York was another early manufacturer of gum for gumball machines in the U.S. The Ford brand of gumball machines had a distinct shiny chrome color. Founded in 1909, Northwestern Corporation started with kitchen matches and eventually came out with the Northwestern Model 33 in 1933 (naming for the year which it came out) and eventually the Model 60 and Model 80, both of which are still sold today.
Upon request the clock can be personalized with a text engraving, which will neatly supplement the look of the clock face.
