Early ‘Wooden Convex’ Trunk dial Wall Clock

£4,550.00

A fine and quite rare 14inch dial wall clock with an interesting history. We recently purchased this and another clock from a customer in London who worked at Holborn Town Hall. A little of the history…This wall clock hung in Holborn Town Hall which is a beautiful building at 193-197 High Holborn and in the French Renaissance style built in 1879. The building was originally a Library and we know this clock was in a small room off the entrance area. It’s a late Georgian clock circa 1810. Camerer Cuss were just around the corner on Oxford Street and we could guess that they either supplied the clock or looked after it and restored it over the years. Holborn town hall was moved to a more ‘modern’ 1970’s style building opposite King’s Cross Station and the beautiful building near the end of Oxford Street was sold to a private company. You can view the Old Town Hall on Google maps. The clock or timepiece ( as it’s not a striking clock ) is one of the best we have ever offered for sale. The movement has been fully overhauled and the case tidied and waxed. A point of note is the very domed dial and matching convex glass. A fine example of the classic ‘trunk’ dial wall clock.
