Great Northern Railway 18 inch dial mahogany cased fusee clock Potts & Sons Leeds dial writing ex Great Northern Station Hotel Wellington Street Leeds.

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, Great Northern Hotel Leeds. This is the largest dial clock I have owned and would make an impressive centre piece in a large room. The link below is of a photograph that shows the clock in situ above the fireplace in the Hall of the Great Northern Hotel. http://www.englishheritagearchives.org.uk
