Thank you for accepting me. I have a perfumers clock and I have not been able to find any information about it. Wondering if anyone has ever seen one. It is small and has a curio section below the clock face area that has two shelves to display small items. Face reads Corning & Tappan Perfumers, NY. Susan

Welcome to the forum.

Well, Google Books has references to the company in question from the 1880s to 1950s. If you could provide images, I might be able to narrow down an age on the clock. Images of the mechanism itself also help.

The only picture I have is on my phone and I cannot access it on my computer. I'll keep trying til I can send you a picture.

This is the clock. The glass lifts from the bottom. The only information I was able to find is that it may have been given as a premium when someone purchased perfume or it could possibly have been a stamp type item used during prohibition. It is in very good condition. Thank you for your help with this. Susan

That's a very nice piece. Looks like a 1890's advertising item that would likely have been on the counter of a store with the perfume for sale in the cabinet. I doubt it was any sort of giveaway.

Yes, without seeing the mechanism, I should also think it from around the turn of the 20th century. I also agree that it was not given away as a premium, but, rather, sat on their counter or the counter of someone who sold their products.
