271-Advertising Clockby Clock Props
A rare French advertising clock, probably from the 1930's.
I have not been able to find any references for this clock other than Vedette was a leading French clock brand.
The original movement is shown here in case someone familiar with electrics would wish to return it to it's original state as a 110 volt power system.
It therefore cannot function in the UK which is why we have converted it to quartz.
It had a system of florescent tubes which illuminated the red wording on the dial and no doubt LEDs could be inserted to highlight the lettering. Definitely a clock for a collector.
52 cm wide / high x 12 cm deep

268-Large Wall Clock
A 1920's French turret clock that would have been outside on some public or industrial building.
Made of iron, the clock dial was purchased without it's original movement and hands so we have made light-weight hands in the antique style to work with a specially adapted quartz mechanism, so it keeps perfect time. An antique clock dial with modern time-keeping.
106 cm wide x 6 cm deep
069-English Clock Tower Dialby Clock Props
069-English Clock Tower Dial
Typical of many Victorian and Edwardian town hall clock dials.
The heavy cast iron frame has Roman numerals on a white background incased in a black metal rim.
The hands are highly decorative and we have been able to adapt them to work with a heavy duty quartz mechanism for perfect time keeping instead of just being a decorative object.
This type of clock rarely pops up nowadays which gives it an added attraction.
Size: 82cm x 12cm

295-Large Enamel Turret Clock
You rarely get enamel clock dials of this size in such good condition with their original hands.
They would have been outside for many years somewhere on the top of a building, exposed to all weathers.
It is particularly nice to have the name and place in the south of France where this clock would have been.
The enamel dial is in perfect condition and would look equally good in a traditional or modern setting.
98cm wide x 12cm deep
208-Extra Large English Turret Clockby Clock Props
208-Extra Large English Turret Clock
A remarkable example of a 19th Century English Turret Clock Dial. The type of clock you can still see on church towers and town halls. Made from copper in 2 sections riveted together, these dials were then painted and numbered, virtually all with Roman numerals. The original heavy iron movement has long since been scrapped. We have made replica hands (you can choose black or gold) mounted to a quartz movement at the centre of the dial for perfect timing. The movement slips into a box at the front, so that it can be easily removed without taking the clock off the wall every 2 years or so for a new AA battery.
One of the most eye catching clocks I have had, enhanced by the convex shape of the round dial and the glimmer of copper coming through the black paint work.
Size: 125 cm diameter, 14 cm deep

017-Smiths 1930s Sunburst Clock
The sunburst motif was a very popular shape in the art deco period for mirrors and clocks. This clock was made by the English firm Smiths and we have adapted the decorative hands to fit a modern quartz mechanism for perfect time keeping. The Arabic dial is protected by a convex glass.
Size: 33 cm x 33 cm

075-19th Century French Wall Clock
This shabby-chic wall clock used to have an unreliable, mechanical movement which we've replaced with a modern quartz, but retained all the antique features of the hands, dial and wooden case. We have painted the outer rim in a distressed red to give it a fresh appeal.
Size: 37 cm diameter x 13 cm deep
122-Early 19th Century Longcase Clockby Clock Props
122-Early 19th Century Longcase Clock
The clock has a tall slimly elegant pine case which we have painted in a distressed pale blue to highlight the colours of the dial and to give it a more up to date feel. Pine case clocks were originally painted or grained to make them look more valuable so our modern day rendering in pale blue is nothing new.
The previous one we had and painted was featured in the Financial Times in February which is an indication of its appeal.
The clock dates from around 1795 and the dial is signed 'Foxton, Sutton' a listed maker in 'G.H.Baillie's Watch & Clockmakers of the World'. Sutton-in-Ashfield is a town 13 miles North West of Nottingham. The clock has a 30 hour weight driven movement striking hourly on a bell.
The clock is in full working order.
Size: 200 cm Height x 42 cm Width x 24 cm Depth
250-Large Iron Dial (Turret Clock)by Clock Props
250-Large Iron Dial (Turret Clock)
An old turret dial that we have restored in a shabby chic manner and fitted a quartz mechanism to it to ensure perfect timing.
I think the colours are good for today's country decor and the size makes it a focus on any wall.
Size: 60 cm diameter x 6 deep
