Favourite Item
A rare and original early 1900s railway clock in a mahogany case, having an unusually large dial, 24 inches in diameter.

The dial is marked B.R.(E), number 3155.

Records show that this clock originated from the Ipswich Station, from the station master's office.

The dial has a very heavy side-hinged cast brass bezel fitted with plastered-in flat glass. The bezel has a simple latch behind the dial surround to keep it shut.

The mahogany surround and back box are stamped in several places with the initials GER, for Great Eastern Railways. GER pre-dated the British Rail Eastern Region, hence the dial would have been repainted following the nationalisation in 1948.

The fusee movement is particularly large, to drive the large counter-balanced hands.

The case has good mahogany veneers to the dial surround and base, which has a locking access door.

The size can be compared against a more standard 12-inch dial in the second photograph.
Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
