King Edward - 2nd 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. Unlike the first issue "King Edward" where the dial was covered by glass in a brass "sash" the 2nd Issue of these clocks had a wooden frame hinged to the front of the clock, holding the glass.
The catalogued clocks have an 8 day movement that can be: Time only, Time / Strike, Time /Strike / Calendar or Time / Calendar. Also pictured is a "variant "King Edward" with the "Moncton" 15 day Movement.
The clocks measure 30 inches in height, 16 inches in width and are 5 inches deep . These beautiful clocks show up from time to time however the models with the calendars are really rare and hard to find.
The clock below with the plain glass has a replacement decal that is pictured below. Mans best friend "Chelsea" broke the glass in a burst of enthusiasm a few years ago!PS. Just added a "King Eddy" with T/S and Calendar (May 2012)
