This electric clock goes back quite a way. It was actually made in 1930's and presented to my Dad much later (I think early 50's) following his long history as President / Treasurer of a local association. It used to hang in the hall, and the hall was about to be demolished.
It was stored in a cupboard for a long time (I don't think Mum really liked it whatever reason) and I found it again when I was clearing out her house before it was sold. I don't think it had been in use for at least 20 years, but worked as soon as it was plugged in! Quality tells eh.
So now I use it here. It is lovely and seems to sit well on our brick walls. It still doesn't miss a beat - as long as the power is on!
