Product Description

An unusual original, reclaimed clock…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest it dates to the mid part of the 20th century onwards. We understand the clock was part of a fixture at the West Yorkshire Water Authority, probably within an office setting or maybe part of an outbuilding.  This original piece features the letters from the entity on the clock face itself, housed behind a polished metal frame and a perspex fascia

Firstly, it’s ‘over sized’ to your average clock at just over 60cm in diameter, and after years of usage the patina left is wonderful. As we haven’t checked the insides, we are offering this clock as a current ‘non runner’. It can be accessed by undoing some screws, and we are sure it could be easily modernised to a battery operation (should original electrics be inside). We like to leave items just as they are found, allowing a new owner to discover, restore and enjoy. Overall, the piece is in strong, structurally good condition and it is relatively weighty…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, there is some natural wear and tear. There are surface scratches, scuffing and some paint loss inside the clock. The fascia has some scratching, yet is in good shape in general. There’s a bit of rust here and there, but this simply adds to the authenticity. It’s maybe a little tatty in places, yet we feel this simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
