621 - CLASSIC ENGLISH TURRET CLOCK
CLASSIC ENGLISH TURRET CLOCK
This Victorian clock dial is made of copper and painted with Roman numerals and a name, possibly that of a shop or factory. Its convex shape allowed the rain to drain off and became a popular shape for outdoor clocks. Few of these have survived and the original heavy movement (long since discarded) is replaced with a specially adapted quartz movement to drive replica hands to give perfect timing.
