Deco Microphone Table Clock

This unique table clock is inspired by an Art Deco style carbon spring microphone from the 1920s used to broadcast popular musical programs and radio shows of the day.

The polished aluminum base, cast from a period original supports an  adjustable suspension ring encircling a round solid brass bezel clock in place of a microphone in the center. It is finished with brass fittings.

Measures 6 ¼” high from the base to the bottom of the ring and 11 ½” high overall with a 5 ¼” diameter

On January 13, 1910, the wireless transmission of a live Metropolitan Opera House performance was the first public radio broadcast.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
