The quality early English fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has rectangular plates with shaped shoulders which are held together by turned shaped ringed pillars, these features point to a movement made in the period 1860 to 1870. The original White enamel painted dial displaying bold Roman numerals and the legend N.E.R. Reid & Sons Newcastle upon Tyne. N835. The case is a traditional English clock case manufactured out of fine figured oak with a turned segmented surround affixed to the back box by two battens with four tapered pegs, the back box is of traditional mid-19th century design with two side access doors and a bottom door secured by a brass lock. A rare example to have escaped subsequent dial repaints by the LNER and North Eastern Region of British Railways. The Dial can be lightly restored if the purchaser requires, but this would take around 3 weeks and would require full payment up front.
