Vincentennial Post #8 - Vincent Price's personal clock

I enlisted the help of my friend Robert Taylor for this Vincentennial post. Now many of you may know Robert from convention circles, and that is in fact where Robert and I first met, at Monster Bash in PA over a decade ago (man how time flies)! We hit it off right away (I can't in fact imagine anyone NOT getting along with Robert). He has a terrific, warm personality and a million stories. I also discovered he has a fantastic horror and sci-fi collection including some ultra-rare Vincent Price one of a kind memorabilia. I contacted Robert to see if he'd be interested in sharing any of his collection here and he graciously agreed to do just that. First up in the Robert Taylor collection is this alarm clock - Here's Robert's description;

Robert - Vinnie's Jaeger LeCoultre travel-alarm clock, which he carried with him on every trip for many, many years.  The leather case is very worn, evidence of the long service the clock gave Price on his frequent travels all over the world!  Behind the clock, Price's own framed photos of his beloved mother and father, Marguerite and Vincent L. Price Sr.
