GLO-DIAL SALEMANS SAMPLE 22 NEON CLOCK Restoration is required but WOW what an amazing piece. The “salesman / company” was Robert K Lewis of 842 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles CA and this would be one of the units they would bring around to places of business to try to sell a GLO-DIAL clock with their company name on the face. Originally it probably said’YOUR COMPANY HERE or YOUR SLOGAN HERE or YOUR BUSINESS NAME HERE etc…. Restaurant Bar Drive-In Diner GM FORD CHEVY DODGE PONTIAC Car Dealership Appliance Dealer Cleaners Soda Fountain Water Lawyer Manufacturing Dairy Ice Cream Shop RX Drug General Store Hardware Lumber Yard etc.. Did they sell Glo-Dials after their own units or before? Maybe they just rebranded the Glo Dials? The clock functions and keeps time. The face ring chrome / stainless?? and outer advertising glass are gone and the neon tube is cracked one spot… The outer case is obviously the original and showing basic scuffing / aging but is intact / complete including all latches and the handle with no crushed corners. Salesman samples are highly sought after and I can only find two similar both of which are in neon museums (of a sort) / collections. Finding a unit for sale is not something that happens very often.
