The British Railway Clock Specialist
12 inch mahogany cased iron dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the Taff Vale Railway circa 1860-1870 by J.Collings of Cardiff. The quality English wire driven fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has rectangular plates with shaped shoulders and turned. A fine mahogany case with a 8 piece segmented convex and concave surround held onto the back box by four tapered pegs with a GWR numberplate 1790 fixed onto the left hand side, the back box is of typical mid 19th century design with two side doors and a bottom door with the lock removed and secured by a ball bearing catch, this would have been fitted by the GWR clock workshops at Reading and is a common feature on GWR clocks. An enamel painted iron dial with Roman numerals and bearing the GWR roundel logo and also visible is the original Ghosted dial writing J.Collings Cardiff. A superb pre grouping example.
