Big Time c.1900
Time waits for no one…..
We are proud to offer a huge cast iron and milk glass sectioned early 20th Century church clock face. Made from a handcrafted cast iron frame, inserts of original milk glass sections, it still has its original copper hand support centralised. A very heavy items as you can imagine, weighting close to 60kg. This example was uncovered in a town hall storage cupboard in Norwich (UK) early this year. A truly wonderfully aged and full of character piece of English time keeping, it would look amazing placed in a retail, restaurant, or large hallway entrance.
NOTE: due to this items size and weight we strongly suggest you get in touch with us before considering a purchase. The logistics of transporting this item globally or outside of the UK would need discussion.
Dimensions in inches: H 65” x W 65” x D 2”
Age:1900 – 1910
Material: Glass / Cast iron / Perspex
This item is completely solid in structure and form, aging has taken place over all the surface, which is what gives this item its decorative look. 80% for the original milk glass is still inserted into the cast iron frame, however the main central section where the hands would have once fitted is an aged Perspex and likely replace in the mid – 20th century. There a few other old repairs, where the glass has been replaced however this does not detract for the visual look of this item. One section is missing to the bottom right as shown in the photos, this is likely to have been a hatch or access point and likely made from wood or brass to access the clock externally if needed. The old plaster which holds the Perspex and glass sheets in place is also brittle and old as you would expect. The photos aim to represent this items condition as best as possible. However, if you are unsure of specific areas, we strongly suggest you propose question before a purchase is made to avoid any confusion or disappointment.

What Our Customers Say
The House of Antiques is my first choice for finding object d’ art or rare and unusual curiosities. They were able to provide items which I am using in the feature films King Lear and Memoria Draco. Prices were very reasonable, beating other companies and delivery was fast. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.
The House of Antiques will continue to be the first company that my film company, AJF, consults for objects that are rare and difficult to find.
