Vintage Wood Mounted Type N Smiths Motor Car Dashboard Clock

This Vintage Wood Mounted Type N Smiths Motor Car Dashboard Clock really had me confused! At first glance, it seemed to be a mantelpiece clock. It is only on closer inspection do you find that it is a car dashboard clock that has been transformed into a mantelpiece clock.

Dial and case are clean, neither have been restored or painted. Nice black face, white painted hands (slight paint wear) and a slightly tarnished chrome rim and case. The clock was probably fitted into a bespoke solid oak case in the 1950s/60s. This art deco geometric shaped case has been lightly sanded and varnished with Danish Oil to show off the patina and wonderful grain structure of the wood.

The 8-day clock is in good vintage working condition. The time keeping has not been calibrated and, in a time piece of this vintage, we would always recommend that it is serviced professionally.

This would be fantastic accessory for the 1930s-40s Classic Car enthusiast or for the vintage office.
