    Description

    Baird Advertising Clock, with Eye Water and Drug Store Advertisement. Circa 1890s with cabinet and works made by the Baird Clock Co. Plattsburgh, NY USA. The clock advertises "Our Old Reliable Eye Water" and the "Jno. R. Dickey Drug Company in Bristol Tennessee". The "Baird" name can be plainly seen on the clock's face, which shows very little age and discoloration. The dark russet-colored paint is slightly mottled, but also almost completely intact. The clock is also in good working order, which is a rarity for these type of clocks. Coca-Cola is probably the most famous advertising clock made by Baird but the company was responsible for making many others that could possibly be much rarer.

    The Jno. R. Dickey Drug Company is a well-documented and famous little company out of Bristol, Tennessee. He was responsible for many pharmaceutical products including; Dickey's Female Tonic & Regulator, Dixie Tasteless Chill Cure, Dickey's Old Reliable Salve, and Dickey's Vegetable Worm Confection. Dickey was involved in and partly responsible for the city of Bristol's growth and progress around the turn of the century. He was a known philanthropist who gave to educational, religious, and women's causes. Antique bottle collectors will no doubt recognize this maker, since many of his pharmaceutical products are worth considerable amounts in this hobby. Overall, a fantastic lot with a quaint history, and it even comes complete with its two original winding keys and clock oil. A rare find to be sure!
