ORIGINAL 1920s TRADE - ADVERTISING CARD 17TH CENTURY A TABLE ALARUM CLOCK WITH "STRIKE-A-LIGHT" This table alarumi clock is another interesting exarnple of the inventiveness of Central Europe, and dates from the close of the 17th century. It reminds us that there is nothing new under the sun, for it does all that the modern waistcoat pocket petrol- lighter does, and more, since it will light a candle at anv prearranged time to which the alarum index is set. The candle lies horizontally in its receptacle in the case, and as it receives the lighted tinder, its lid flies up and the candle follows like a Jack-in-the- box, the motion being cleverly designed to fan the wick intothe flame.
