Vomit Clock!!  These novelty clocks were the product of a mid-century DIY craze. In 1954 Lanshire Clock & Instrument Corp of Chicago filed for a Trademark for their 'Build O'clock' term that may have been applied to kits they offered to consumers to make these clocks. Retailers also sold kits that included Lanshire movements and 'mold of the month' kits. I've only seen one mold for these clock kits, but they are hard to find! But you can have your own vomit clock!  This c. 1960 vomit clock in brown/gray acrylic is in working condition and appears complete. The 'self starting' clock has it's original plastic knurled knob on the back for setting the time, and the clock appears to be in very good overall condition.
