What a shame! – a clock disaster

repurposed clock case

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?
