Newton School copper wall clock


A repousse copper wall clock made by the Newton School of Metal Work, circa 1920.

The wall clock has a repousse copper face with a design of a squirrel atop branches. The original working clock is held in a wooden frame and has a simple wood and brass pendulum and weights that power the clock for around 24 hours. The Newton School of Metal Work made many similar designs for clocks and, although this one is not shown in their design archive, there are many similar clocks designed by both George Tanner and John Williams. I suspect this one was deigned by George Tanner. One of the side panels of the clock has the remains of an original Newton School paper label.
