DSCN7740WW2 Smiths Army issue wall clock with 14 inch dial, dated 1941

 For sale is this quite rare very fine WW2 Smiths Army issue wall clock with the larger 14inch dial and mahogany wood surround, dated 1941. The clock is in full working order keeping time. The Smiths standard brass bezel is painted black. On the back of the clock are old original service labels. The movement is the correct Astral Coventry 123. The Army version was not marked on the movement nor case, the Royal Air Force version was marked and stamped with dates and Air Ministry stamps.  The original dial as you can see would have been difficult to restore so the dial paint on the original side has been saved and stabilized. The reverse side of the dial has now been repainted in a mirror image of the original side. So, you now have original a WW2 Army issue clock that not only retains its original dial and paint, but also a very fine mirror image side that you see in the first set of pics.  These are so hard now find especially early ones with the mahogany surrounds. As the war progressed and materials became in short supply, various non-hard woods and then Bakelite was used.  Price £895.00
