This is the Model 304 "Zephyr" made by Lawson Time Inc (c1940). This clock, which I recently restored, has great art deco style, and is definitely a favourite amongst collectors.

Big Ben Clock by Wesclox (c1920s). This clock is a little beat up, but has lots of character, and still keeps good time. Not a bad effort for its age.

Kookaburra Cigarette Dispenser (c1950). This is an unusual curiosity made of bakelite. To use it, you would fill up the container section with cigarettes, and push the kookaburra down with a finger, as you do so the white tray moves out with a single cigarette in it. When the beak reaches the tray it will pick up a cigarette in it's beak and pop back up again. I guess it beats opening a packet to get a cig, but interesting bit of history anyway.

A modern day model of the 1922 Miller Indy 500 Race Car, made by Gilbow. This is a great model, it has a clockwork engine and is about 45cm (18in) long. A wonderful recreation of those old racing cars.
