Vintage 1960's English "Smiths" Westminster Chiming Mantel Clock with Silence. Vintage 1960's English "Smiths" Westminster chiming mantel clock with silence. This is in excellent condition and is in full working order. It has a stunning dome topped oak body with oak inlays down each side. The oak has a dark brown coloured finish with a darker visible grain.The face is circular in shape with a cream coloured metal chapter ring, silver coloured numerals and gold. The number nine is the chime/silence selector lever. The face is protected by a convex glass door with a brass bezel. The glass is in excellent condition with no scratches, cracks or chips. To the back is the door to the mechanism chamber.
The door is intact and in excellent condition. This chimes at quarter past the hour, half past the hour, quarter to the hour and on the hour. On the hour it also chimes the number of hours. The strange thing with this is that the chime is so out of tune that I can't help but think that it must be deliberate.It sounds like music on your old Walkman with the batteries are running low. Really quite funny to be honest. This comes complete with its pendulum and key. The presentation plaque below the face reads: Presented to Mrs L. Goodhall by William Mallinson & Sons Ltd, in recognition of 25 years loyal and efficient service 1967.
