Albert Showcase Clock by Sven Stornebel

The Albert clock by German designer Sven Stornebel is not just a clock – it’s a showcase as well. Each house-shaped clock comes with a resident by way of a small plastic toy in the same color. The toy can be put on display in the clock or sat out on its own.

You can open the back to fill the case with your treasures or leave it empty. Produced in Stornebel’s studio, each unique piece can either hang on the wall or stand on its own.
