This is a Neuchatel Swiss mantel clock from the 1850's with characteristic features found on Swiss clocks of this period - the waisted shape of the case, which is made of metal (tole) and a removable pagoda top. Originally it had a mechanical pendulum movement, which is sadly missing. We have now fitted a modern quartz mechanism to the original wooden dial with its Roman numerals, so that it is brought back to life and keeping perfect time. It is still very decorative with its painted tole case and its unusual shape and should appeal to anybody with an eye for detail on unusual clocks. have a look at the writing in one of the photographs giving the date and origin.
