The British Railway Clock Specialist
12 inch Mahogany cased drop dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the Great Western Railway circa 1850. The quality English “London style” fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has rectangular plates which are held together by shaped pillars. A Mahogany drop dial case with a lovely flame mahogany veneer which is tooled along the sides. The back box is of mid 19th century London design with a shallow curve to the bottom, the bottom door is cock beaded and retains its original brass lock, the GWR ivorine numberplate 632 is screwed onto the front of the drop. The original painted iron dial with Roman numerals and block lettered GWR has had a few small patches of sympathetic restoration around the dial pillars but the rest has been left for originality. This is probably the best example of a very early GWR clock of this style to come onto the market.
