An Attractive 19thC Circular Painted Grandfather Clock Dial


Origin: English
Period: Mid/Late Nineteenth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1860-1890
Diameter: 13 inches

The round face with gilt-edged border having hand painted roman numerals with winding holes and two further subsidiary dials on an ivory ground.

Once having been the face of a long case clock, this dial is in as found condition and has not been cleaned or restored in any way, thus retaining its charms as a decorative piece of art. There is an even spread of craquelure to the face with wear commensurate with age. To the reverse the face still has the four pins and rotating cog for the lower subsidiary dial.

Of a timeless design this antique dial proves a wonderfully decorative and beautiful antique whether as part of a working clock or not.
