Drexel Declaration grandfather clock — 1964 beauty

 

drexel-declaration-clockDrexel Declaration furniture is one of our favorite midcentury designs, because of the lovely way it bridges modern and traditional styles. This Drexel Declaration grandfather clock, though: Decidedly modern — heading toward flower power even! All photos: UrbanAmerica on ebay.
