CLOK-1003

The Kit-Cat Clock is a novelty style kitchen wall clock that first appeared during
the 1930s. The first clock was made in 1932 by the Allied Clock Company in
Portland, Oregon which moved to Seattle, Washington and then to southern
California in 1962. The name was changed to California Clock Company.  The manufacturer estimates that the clock has been sold at an average rate of one
every three minutes for the last 50 years.
