GNR 8 inch Mahogany cased Fusee Clock LNER No 207 A N. The clock has a one piece turned surround with a cast brass bezel secured by a bezel lock, the dial is totally original and is painted in the early LNER style showing the rarely seen N suffix also visible in ghosted writing is GNR JJ STOCKALL & SONS LTD LONDON. The Fully overhauled chain driven fusee movement also bears the STOCKMAR trade mark to the front plate and the case still retains its original finish, research shows that this clock was located at Kings Cross York Road District Engineers Messengers Office. The clock was given to the vendor in the late 1960's as a present from his next door neighbour who was Eddie Klein, Eddie was one of the clock repairmen who worked at the Doncaster repair shop and his signature E.K. can be found on the backs of many BR(E), BR(NE) clocks. A stunning example of a very rare clock in fully restored and working condition, possibly the best example of this type ever to appear at auction.
