  • 707- Mid-Century Modern Wall/ Mantel Clock

    A very well designed clock made by the famous English clock company 'Smiths'.
    Made in the post-war era when many interesting products were designed around the time of the 'Festival of Britain' (1951).
    The clock has a chamfered, oblong wooden frame and a contrasting red dial with a modern (for the time) lay-out of white numerals
    and white hands.
    The clock is fitted with a mechanical movement with a 'floating' balance wheel escapement which will be of particular interest to a clock enthusiast.
    The clock has been made to sit on either a flat surface or hang on the wall, which is another interesting design feature.
    It comes with a key and needs winding every 5-7 days.
