Melting Clocks

Goodwill Novato today and found copy of a melting clock originally designed by George Nelson based on the well known painting by Salvador Dali "The Persistence of Memory". There is a little write-up on the various styles produced over on the InfoBarrel website, along with some pictures and how to find re-productions. At a whopping $2.49 I was ready to take the chance it still worked and took it home.

A new battery and it has kept great time ever since. I put it on the wood pillar between the kitchen and the dining room of the house, adding some iron dancers I found at the local hospice thrift ($15.00) and have been smiling every time I glance at it since.
