The British Railway Clock Specialist
12 inch mahogany cased iron dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the Great Western Railway circa 1890-1900 by Spirdion & Son Cardiff. The quality chain driven fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has A frame plates. A fine mahogany case with a one piece convex and concave surround held onto the back box by four tapered pegs with the GWR numberplate removed from the left hand side and an LMS oval brass numberplate 15140 screwed to the right hand side, the back box is of typical late 19th century design with one side door and a bottom door secured by a brass turn. An enamel painted iron dial with Roman numerals and bearing GWR in block and also visible is the original Ghosted dial writing Spiridion & Son Cardiff on the back of the dial and case is the written in pencil the GWR clock number 1347. In the absence of both the GWR & LMS clock records it can be surmised that this clock was used on one of the Joint lines probably the Severn & Wye.
