Vintage School Clock

I have just listed a very interesting item on Simply Sam Trading that of an old vintage School Bell Clock. You remember they would ring reminding you about tea breaks, lunch time, but best of all, end of school bell at 4pm, for people like me who were schooled in the UK.

So when I discovered this little gem, I got to thinking of all those parents who battle to raise their children in the mornings. Imagine installing this in your kitchen and have it set for 6am and, just like 'Pavlov's Dog', you're children would most probably jumped out of bed - conditioned so to the sound of the bell at school. It would certainly be an unsual conversational piece.
