Found the "original" Seth Thomas neon clock (had broken glass). Because of the "green neon", I decided to do a "custom" clock in "Polly".

My friend did did a killer "restoration" work. Replaced the replacement glass from a company in Oregon.

Cool looking, but newer collectors need to remember that "customized" clocks like this are fantasy remakes of generic clocks. If there isn't a permanent marking on it to identify that it is not real, somebody down the road may mistakenly pay big bucks for a reworked office clock, thinking that it is a real Polly clock.
