At mid-century, Metamec was the largest clock maker in the UK and well-known for their high standards. 1984 may not have been as bad as Mr. Orwell predicted, but it was in fact the end for this particular company. This 1950's Metamec mantel clock is all circles in a charming Deco homage. The dark wood sets off the chrome nicely and the whole piece is in very good condition, with only minor surface wear. The glass is clean, with no chips or scratches. The clock has been restored with a new battery-powered quartz movement so it keeps time quietly and well with no need for winding.
8 H x 1 ft long (base) x 2.5 D; face is 7 diameter
