GWR 12 inch Mahogany cased fusee clock, with chisel base to the bottom of the drop. A significant Great Western clock with chain driven fusee and a nice Ogee surround to the dial. The movement of typical London style has many John Walker characteristics which point to this clock being supplied by this maker between 1853-1871. Subsequently, Kays took over the supply of clocks to the GWR. The clock is in unrestored original condition with a cast brass bezel, Ivorine numberplate GWR 651 and the same number chalked onto the back box. The movement is stamped 7185 as are the bezel hinge and pendulum. A rare clock and the best of this type we have ever seen.
