Description


This vintage Elizabeth II English cast sterling silver and silver gilt ornamental clock has been modelled in the form of 'Little Ben'*, a model of London's most famous clock tower 'Big Ben'.


This model is embellished with embossed and chased floral motifs accented with panels of silver gilt trellis designs to reproduce the fine architectural detail of this Gothic style clock tower.


The tower is fitted with a push fit rounded domed 'roof'/cupola-style cover, which allows access to the three push fit, battery operated clock faces.


Each clock retains the original white enamel dial accented with black Roman numeral hour markers encircled by a minute marked chapter ring.


These impressive clock faces are fitted with black shaped hands.


The model is mounted on a stepped black marble presentation plinth.


This vintage model of Little Ben is fitted to the original hinged box with a velvet and satin lined interior.


The interior of the presentation box and exterior of the outer box bears the retailer's mark 'Mappin & Webb' in addition to the royal crests for H.M the Queen and H.R.H the Prince of Wales.


This impressive boxed vintage clock retains the original invoice.


* Little Ben is a cast iron miniature clock tower which mimics the famous clock tower colloquially known as 'Big Ben' (St Stephens Tower). It is situated at the intersection of Vauxhaull Bridge Road and Victoria Street, in Wesminster, central London. This impressive clock tower is currently in storage and is due to be reinstated once the London Victoria train station is fully renovated.


Date: 1983

Condition


This vintage ornamental clock is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The battery operated clocks are all in working condition and may be set individually.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the reverse panel to the top of the clock tower are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this vintage ornamental clock.
