The British Railway Clock Specialist
14-inch Teak cased iron dial clock with drop to the case and a cast brass bezel manufactured for the London Chatham and Dover Railway circa 1860. The quality English chain driven fusee movement of typical London style has large rectangular plates which are held together by turned tapered shouldered pillars. An enamel painted iron dial with Roman numerals and bearing the legend, BR(S) 1290 SE. A traditional English drop dial clock case manufactured from Teak with a four piece turned concave and convex surround affixed to the back box by two battens with four tapered pegs, the back box is of traditional mid 19th century design with one side access door and a bottom door secured with a brass lock, the drop of the case features fine figured teak and the rear of the case has been stamped 1290 SE. The Southern clock records show that this clock was last in use at Folkestone Harbour Port Masters Office and before that was used in the Booking Hall Honor Oak Station. I haven’t seen another one of these clocks in teak.
