This painted wall clock is made from wood and card.
It has a printed dial and does not have a working movement.
The dial and the decorative cut-out are protected by acetate.
The decoration is hand painted and this one has faded roses, intermixed with gilded decoration.
I have made a pattern for the clock, but as the decoration is all done by hand, no two clocks ever look exactly the same.
And – as I only paint in “good” daylight – I don’t make these as often as I would like to.
1 and 3/4 inches long
1 and 1/16th inches wide
1/4 inches deep (at clock face)
approx ( 4.5 cm x 3.8cm x .5cm )
I saw the original of this clock in an auction some years ago.
It was catalogued as being English (circa 1830), made of papier-mache and by an unknown maker.
It was LARGE – 30 inches long by 19 inches wide and 5 inches deep – and sold for a eye-opening sum of money.
My version is therefore smaller than 12th scale – and a little more affordable.
Please Note – this miniature clock is not a “Toy”. It is a “Collector’s Item”
