The Lackner Sign Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, was one of the largest producers of neon and light-up advertising signs and clocks during the 1930s-50s. Along with their large commercial clocks, Lackner also offered a line of rare tabletop “Neon-Glo” clocks for home use. Among the Neon-Glo clocks was the Art Deco style Dulcy. Its stepped skyscraper case was available in alabaster (white), green, brown, orchid, or blue Catalin, and you could have a dial with either numbers or abstract hour markers. A circular neon tube inside gave the dial and translucent case a warm glow. Alabaster was the most popular Dulcy case color, and invariably the Catalin darkened to a rich butterscotch color over time, as this one has. Because of Catlins tendency to shrink, its difficult to find a Dulcy without stress lines or cracks. The clock measures roughly 6.5″ wide by 6.75″ high by 3 deep. This clock has its original clock movement, dial, hands, neon transformer, dial escutcheon, base metal trim, and back panel. The neon tube lights up well and illuminates the entire highly swirled catalin cabinet. The clock keeps time currently but there is no guarantee as to continued accuracy. If you wish to use this every day to keep your schedule on time and punctual, I recommend you have this service by a qualified technician.
