It's true, there is no clock inside there, but I personally have 3 things within 6 feet of me that would look great in there.
American, ca 1910-1920. An iron front shelf clock face with 30 hour movement, the case in the form of figures of a fur trader and a Native American. Marked Regent Mfg. Co., Chicago on bottom.
Measures 14-1/2" in height x 11" in length x 2" in width.
In great condition.
