Great Western Railway 12 inch dial Mahogany cased fusee drop dial trunk clock ex Park House Swindon Works.

12 inch Mahogany cased drop dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the Great Western Railway circa 1870 by Kays of Worcester. The quality English chain driven fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has A frame plates which are held together by turned tapered pillars. A Mahogany curved bottom trunk case with a eight piece convex surround held onto the back box by four tapered pegs, the back box is of typical mid 19th century design with two side door’s and a bottom door with the lock filled in and secured with a GWR replacement ball bearing catch, the GWR ivorine numberplate 25 is screwed onto the side of the case. An enamel painted iron dial with Roman numerals and bearing the legend GWR and visible as ghosted writing KAYS LIMITED WORCESTER. The GWR clock winding records for Swindon works show this clock as being located in Swindon Works Park House and was wound on a Thursday afternoon, rare to have this information with a GWR clock as most of the records were lost in 1984, however the Winding records for the works survive.
