Condition report
The movement of the clock is stamped W. Edwards Birmingham and numbered 22647. The calendar movement is stamped 23476 219. The key and pendulum are both present. The movement strikes on the half hour, but is currently striking an hour too fast and requires attention. The glass door panel to the front of the clock dial is a little warped and requires attention. The case is constructed from moulded plaster encased in slate panels. The slate has discoloured and requires a polish. There is a painted metal door to the rear of the case.
