This vintage Dr. Pepper regulator pendulum wall clock is an eight-day wind-up clock. It’s called a St. Charles Clock and was made by Craft Products Company of Charles, IL. It has a reddish finished, oak front and sides with scrollwork carvings. I have never wound it, so the clock is being sold as is. In doing research on it, it appears to have been made in the 1970s. It has a 31 day calendar and Roman Numerial numbers on the face. The bottom portion, which includes the brand logo, says on the glass "Drink Dr Pepper, King of Beverages. Vim, Vigor & Vitality" and the wording is undamaged. The glass in the door is a smokey goldish color, with a small “window” in the center so that you can see the pendulum (which has gone missing). The entire glass door opens so that you can set and wind the clock. It is about 37" tall, 15" wide and 5" deep. Since I have never tried to wind it, I cannot vouch for this clock being able to keep time. The general physical condition is excellent although there is a chip off the back of the crown which is not visible to anyone looking at the front of the clock and there is a small nick on the underside of the lower “shelf.” The winding key is included as are the original manufacturer’s instructions. Meet me in Scarborough to have a look. The purchase is final as I cannot accept returns. It’s a cool collector’s item!
