The British Railway Clock Specialist
18 inch mahogany cased iron dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the GNR around 1869 when the hotel was opened. The quality English chain driven fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has rectangular plates, which are held together by turned pillars. A Mahogany case with a segmented turned surround held onto the back box by four tapered pegs, the back box is of typical mid to late 19th century design with two side doors and a bottom door secured by a brass lock. An enamel painted iron dial with Roman numerals and bearing the legend, Potts & Sons 7599. The London & North Eastern Railway clock records show that this clock was located at, The Great Northern Hotel Leeds and was situated in the Hall above the Fireplace. This is the largest dial clock I have owned and would make an impressive centre piece in a large room.
