Seth Thomas ‘Starburst’ wall clock, with teak and chrome rays and atoms, Scotland circa 1960’s

Starburst wall clocks are one of the definitive and most iconic pieces for the Mid-Century Modern styled house.  They came in many varied designs, all stemming from George Nelson’s  classic clock designs of the early 1950’s.  With their atomic aesthetic, and teak and chrome construction, they are the perfect pairing for Danish / Eames furniture, as functional and striking pieces of wall art.
