Antique English c 1910 George V Government Wall Clock Ingram Bros Wood Green London
Antique mahogany case English 12" wall clock. Manufactured by Ingram brothers of Wood Green,
London around 1910 this antique single fusee movement mechanism is housed within a rich wooden mahogany frame. The cream painted dial features the Roman numerals, maker's name, address and George V cipher which helps date it after 1910 and suggests that it was government property. The cipher usually indicated that it hung in a government building or public place like a train station, etc. The winding key and dial are included with this piece which came form a distinguished clock collection in Pasadena, California recently.
I believe this was originally hung in the General Post Office in Russell Square, London as attested by the following document in the clock.
Inside it is marked Admiral Block @ Kidbrook Room. The brass back to the mechanism is marked 4576.
Repair document inside movement door by M Whitty. Owner marked as GPO, Russell Square, Room 10
