We had to live with this one for a couple of years before we could even think about parting with it. In all that time we've never seen another one like it. This one is really special! Made by Spartus, this spinner clock features a fully working Western motion scene that lights up when you turn the switch. The bottom of the clock looks like a miniature stage, with a curved plastic cover sporting a painted cowboy and cactus. The backdrop is a western scene with more cowboys, wagons, mountains, praries, and sky. In the middle is a vertical plastic tube that revolves as the clock spins. Inside the tube is another western scene on what looks like a paper cylinder. The scene changes from a horse drawn covered wagon to another mounted cowboy, all against a colorful background of mountains, sky, and birds. The detail is very impressive!Overall condition is very good, but it does show some age. The colors are still bright and vibrant, and all of the graphics are in very good condition with no loss of picture at all. The plastic cover over the western scene is a slightly brittle, and has one or two very small, minor cracks in the top. They are barely visible, and you really only see them if you look for them. There are also some very tiny tears in the backdrop of the center tube, but again they do not affect the graphics at all, and you really have to look to find them. The bakelite case is in very good condition with no visible damage. The clock face is clean and all numbers are intact. The clock has been running and appears to keep good time, and the scene lights when the switch is on. Aside from the very minor wear mentioned in the bottom, the clock is really very clean, original, and complete. I only mention these tiny flaws to be totally accurate.This one is very special, and I don't think it will last long, so don't hesitate! It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas for someone who collects Western curiosities, or as a spectacular night light for a child's room.
