This rare clock (1 of only 3 known to currently exist in this size) was produced by Chelsea Clock’s early predecessor, Boston Clock Company which operated from 1884-1894.
Originally named the “Locomotive” for its use in trains in the late 1800’s. The clock’s low serial number indicates it was likely made in the company’s early years. The solid brass, nickel-plated case features an 8 1/2” dial with engraved Roman numerals and a push button releasing hinged bezel. The dial, moon hands and case have been untouched and retain their original finish. A seven (7) jeweled movement is die-stamped on the front plate with Boston Clock Company, the patent date, December 1, 1884, and serial number, A1169. Optional custom fitted wall plaques available.
