CLOCK AND CARD SET:
- This set of objects related to the Radio, contains a pair of Hourglasses, belonging to the Radio and Television Station "IBERIA", along with the Photo of the radio announcer Africa Morales, from Radio Dersa in Tetuan, whose back has printed propaganda of the Radio Station "IBERIA". The set dates from the very beginning of the Second Half of the 20th century.

HOURGLASSES:
Description:
- Pair of Hourglasses. Duration of 3 minutes. They were used to measure time on the Radio and in the early days of Television. They date from very early Second Half of the 20th century.
- One of the Clocks is very well preserved. The painting of the Badges that are in the Bases are very well preserved, allowing a good reading. A Base has the “IBERIA Radio TV” Badge. The other Base has the Badge "V", "S", "C", inscribed each letter in a rhombus that is missing a side. The three rhombuses are joined so that they form an exagon, which is missing three of its sides.
- The other Clock is partially disassembled, since the Bases have taken off from the Body. As a couple, it has been considered that this circumstance makes it easier to analyze the assembly of the Clocks. The Badges of the bases, equal to those of the other Clock, can hardly be seen, since they are practically missing all of their painting.
- Each Clock is composed of Four Parts. A central body, two bases and the glass bubble with two capsules and the sand inside. The central body has two plastic rings at its ends, which are attached to the three metal pillars by screws. Each Base has a metal ring and a pad inside to seat the Bubble. The Bases are attached to the plastic rings of the ends of the Body by glue.
- The Watches have a fantastic patina, so together with their characteristics, they have an attractive and charming appearance.

CARD:
Description:
- On the front of the card is a photo of Africa Morales, an announcer on Radio Dersa in Tetuan. It has a handwritten dedication with the caption "To Paquita de Navacerrada in Malaga, with sympathy from Africa Morales".
- On the back of the card, Radio Iberia advertising is printed. The year 1954 appears on it.
- The printing of the Photo is good, single colour in black. The printing of the advertisement is good, single colour in red.
- Good quality thick paper.
- The four corners of the back are noticeably deteriorated, with traces of having been glued. The two lower corners have lost the thickness of the paper, leaving only the thin film of the Photo. It would be convenient to restore it.
- The edges are slightly deteriorated, very small broken and irregularly cut, with slight folds and bends.
- It has dirt, rust marks and humidity.

Comments: - Both measurements and weight are approximate.
- It is extremely rare to find both the Watches and the Card.
- Very interesting as collection pieces and decorative elements.
- Because it is inevitable the differences of tonalities between photos and reality, you must have in mind that the tones of the colors of the photos are not exactly equal to the tones of the real colors.
- The object shows the wear and tear of its time, as well as some stains. It has small flaws.
- The data provided here are non-contrasting personal opinions.
