This little sweetheart is delightfully smaller than many so-called "school house" clocks and includes fancy and elaborate carvings on the wood Oak case surrounding the dial. The dial with Arabic numerals is original to the clock and in good condition. On the back of the case is the original label (see our photograph) which includes about 2/3rds of its printing. Fortunately the important wording including the name "Branford" is retained. The eight-day mechanism is clean and running well, striking the hours on a clear coil gong. The pendulum "bob" has a fancy brass design (see photo). Overall, this is a hard-to-find version of the larger school house or "Octagon" wall clocks. Priced to sell quickly in these economic recessionary times.
