687 - Antique Grandfather/ Longcase Working Clock Dial
Old Grandfather Clock Dials (Longcase) from the 19th century make great decorative items because of their attractive artwork. This one is especially interesting
because the Roman numerals are configured in a most unusual way. They are called 'Tumbling Numbers'.
Take a look at other dials and you will see the difference I am mentioning. These 19th century dials were painted by skilled artists mostly in places like Stoke-on-Trent where they turned their hands to clock dials as well as pottery.
This one is in particularly good condition and because we have fitted it with a modern quartz movement and the appropriately style hands it is a working clock that keeps perfect time. Generally they are hung on the wall but can also be table mounted with a suitable stand.
