The British Railway Clock Specialist
12 inch Mahogany cased drop dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the Taff Vale Railway circa 1860, by Joseph Collings of Cardiff. The quality English fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has rectangular plates with shaped shoulders and cut out to the bottom which are held together by turned tapered pillars. A Mahogany dial case with a 8 piece moulded surround with a back box of mid 19th century design with 2 side doors and a bottom door with the lock removed and now secured with the GWR modified ball bearing catch, the bezel retains its wartime black finish, and the GWR ivorine numberplate 2297 is screwed onto the left hand side of the case. The original painted iron dial with Roman numerals and the 1930’s GWR roundel has had a few small patches of sympathetic restoration around the dial pillars but the rest has been left for originality, the hands are also original and are typical of Joseph Collings supplied clocks. This is a superb example of a Taff Vale Railway clock.
