Seller: fitzsimmonsaa (47) 100%, Location: Putney, Ships to: GB, Item: 164071414172 This is a nice example of a Vintage "Smiths English Clocks" "Sectric" wall clock with a Bakelite case and a red second hand. According to Barrie Smith's dating guide at http://www.electric-clocks.co.uk/SMITHS/sm-quick%20guide.htm, the "Smiths English Clocks" on the motor casing tells us this clock was made between 1931 and 1955. It has what Smith calls their "Bijou" type motor, first made in 1937. The clock runs on the the mains. I connected it and it worked, with a soothing rumbling 'purring' sound, as soon as I pushed in the knob that turns the hands. The casing has an non-repaired hairline crack (shown in the third photo) that can easily be repaired or reinforced as you prefer. It also has some tiny traces of paint on the casing that are too small/faint to come out clearly on photos. If you know its there, you can just see the worst on the last photo. Front diameter about 175mmBack diameter about 205mmDepth about 65mm The selected carrier offers compensation of up to £20. If you want compensation up to the full price, please tell me BEFORE YOU PAY so I can tweak the price to allow for the extra carrier charge. If you don't do this, loss/damage in transit beyond £20 is for your account unless we find another way to pay for the extra insurance! Brand: Smiths, Age: Vintage, Type: Wall Clock, Material: Bakelite, Clock Type: Synchronous motor wall clock
