Musical Traveling Alarm Clock
By Don Caine

Hi Jere,  In response to your MMD posting:

> Has anyone ever seen a little traveling alarm clock --
> the fold-up type -- with a real music box that plays the
> "Blue Danube Waltz" for the alarm?

I have not seen a folding musical alarm clock.  However, I do have in
stock a vintage HECO (Made in Germany) mini version of a mantel clock
that is only 4-1/2" tall x 3" wide x 2-1/4".  I would think it could
be used as a travel alarm clock.  It also has a Reuge (Swiss) 18-note
musical mechanism playing the "Blue Danube Waltz" that you mentioned.

The clock and musical mechanisms work well.  The case is a powder blue
plastic with some flowers on the face and a painted gold filigree
around the edges.  There is a small crack and chip in the plastic above
the clock bezel that has been repaired/glued but it is visible.

If you are interested, the cost would be $35.00 + $10.35 Priority Mail
for a total of  $45.35.  If you are not satisfied, you may return it
for a full refund less the shipping costs.  Please feel free to contact
me if you have any other questions.

Most sincerely,
