King Edward - 1st Edition
This popular clock was introduced in the 1904 Pequegnat Catalogue supplement. It appeared in every catalogue after that: to include the 1913, 1918, 1920-25 Wall catalogue and the final catalogue produced in 1928.
The clock was named after King Edward VII, the King of England from 1901 until 1910. The decal bears his likeness. The first issue "King Edward" the dial is covered by glass in a brass "sash", unlike the 2nd Issue of these clocks that have the wooden from hinged to the front of the clock, holding the glass.
These clocks have an 8 day movement that can be Time only or Time and Strike. I don't believe the "1st Edition King Edwards" have been seen with the calendar feature that has been recorded on the 2nd Edition of this clock.
The Time only model measures 30 inches in height and 16 inches in width, however the Time / Strike model is an inch shorter at 29 inches. The drop on the 1st Edition is 12 1/2 inches where as the 2nd Edition drop is 13 1/2 inches.
These beautiful clocks show up from time to time however they are considered rare and hard to find.
