I have 2 different victrola shaped clocks. One is like yours. Does yours work?? Neither of mine did. I finally took it to a clock person who got them to work, but ruined some of the internal appearance on both. Here are pictures before they worked. Stan Stanford (Portland)

I assume they were sold to dealers who put them on their desk. I doubt if they were sold to the public. I have also posted pictures of similar type items from my collection: ink well; humidor.

Thanks for posting. His clock does work. Does your clock have any writing under the face?

Mine does have similar writing but it's on the back of the clock. Stan

It's safe to say that Stan's clock-face is on the correct side of the Victrola, look for the doors in the casting.
