French frame antenna with clock
Made of wood and cardboard, covered with imitation crocodile leather and gold coloured ornaments. With rectangular wind-up clock. The actual antenna is hidden in the rim.
The antenna mainly receives the magnetic component of the antenna signal, thus eliminating a part of the interference.
This type of antenna was very popular in Belgium and France. It was made in France, around 1955.

The two plugs must be connected to the antenna and earth sockets of a radio. After tuning the radio, the frame antenna then needs to be tuned, using the knob on the upper left. The other knob is used to select the wave length: medium, two long wave ranges, and short. In that case, the antenna input socket (below left) has to be used. The second long wave range is a fixed range for radio station "Paris Inter" (later "France Inter") on 1852 meters.
