Abstract: A knockdown floor clock mainly includes a clock vertically stably supported on a plurality of legs that are radially connected at upper and lower sideward projected heads to upper and lower joining units, respectively. The upper joining unit includes an upper holding tube that is upward extended from a top center of the unit and cooperates with a plurality of curved side supports located at two sides thereof to provide multiple supporting points below the clock. The use of the upper and lower joining units to radially join the legs enables the forming of a knockdown floor clock that can be easily disassembled for convenient storage or firmly assembled for use.
Abstract: Case clocks, especially of the so-called tall-case or grandfather type, equipped with at least one suspended elongated weight, preferably contained within a weight shell or casing, are provided with at least one narrow annular memorializing band surrounding the weight or shell and retained thereon, the annular band carrying on an exposed surface indicia commemorating a particular event to be memorialized. Preferably, the memorializing band slidably encircles the weight or shell, the latter including at its lower end a radially projecting detent, of bead shape for example, to limit the downward movement of the band. A plurality of such bands can be stacked vertically end-to-end on each weight or shell. The weight and bands are visually exposed through doors or other openings or transparent panels in the clock case.
