Seldom-seen table clock by San Francisco Bay artisan Robert McKeown (1931-1989). A graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts, McKeown was a color theorist and woodworker who won acclaim for his innovative resin inlays on a range of utilitarian objects. McKeown's work is included in the collections of the American Craft Museum in New York and the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. The present clock, which is in working order, has figured walnut facings with rosewood sides and sterling silver hour markers. It features two vibrant multicolor lines of his proprietary resin inlay. The works take a single double-A battery. With both his branded mark and an incised signature underneath, and a foil label inside.
