Seller: pianolapiano (345) 100%, Location: Rickmansworth, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 174077950967 A Smiths Delhi Medium 'Sectric' synchronous electric wall clock, 1940s. The bakelite case, which has at some time been painted white, appears to be in good condition. The cable entry points at the top and bottom have both been knocked out, as illustrated in the fourth and fifth pictures. There is good potential to remove the white paint using normal paint stripper, which is not usually detrimental to the bakelite material. It could come up very nicely with a bit of patience. The dial is quite good, with a scattering of tiny rust spots, which adds to its character. The letters LCC are painted just below where it says Smiths Sectric and I wonder if this might have stood for London County Council at the time (pre 1965). The dial glass in perfect condition, although could do with a clean. The Bijou mains electric movement has not been tested in any way, but these are usually serviceable or repairable, as required. The hand setting stalk is missing, so a replacement would need to be sought, unless you're looking to convert to a quartz movement. Overall diameter 11.5 inches, dial 9 inches. Any questions, please drop me a line and I'll do my best to provide additional information where possible. Collection in person is welcome if you happen to live locally to me, Rickmansworth WD3 postcode. Thank you for looking and happy bidding!
