Along with two other items I received my shipment in only two days. All arrived in perfect condition as they are packaged very well. This clock must be handled with extreme care though because of the flourescent bulb. I took a couple of weeks to search for a clock to put into my kitchen diner. The clock is one of many items I plan to put on the wall behind my pub set. For appearance and price I found this clock was the best and didn't have to fork out $150 more for others I saw. This clock is excellent for my collection and very, very pleased!!!
