ID for glass clock (B)
« on: August 31, 2009, 08:23:37 AM »
Hi again

Would also appreciate if someone could tell me the maker of this clock.

On the base, it has a mark something like?? "TRADE TSU MARK" embossed???

Although, in blue colour, it turns green when exposed to the blacklight.

Any info is much appreciated

Cheers
Brenton

Can you add picture of the mark? And other views of clock, details of movement and any markings on that...

The figures on the clock look like they are doing Martial Arts, so maybe Japan origin.

Ahhhh now there's a thought, TC. The TSU trademark might be theirs - we need to check old trademark records for that!
