I discovered this sad case in an antique shop near my home. What was once a gingerbread clock is now a repainted case with shelves at the ridiculous price of $35. Just a few steps away was a similar parlour clock for only $20 more and it was largely intact. Some would argue that a repurposed clock case is not such a bad thing but as a clock collector I find this appalling.
Is it not better to have left the case alone and present it as an ornament rather that convert it into a hideous curio cabinet?

I couldn’t agree more with you on this, and the colors are hideous.
Curiously some folks are not bothered by it.
