Large Electric Station Clock

Large Electric Station Clock

#94098

Circa 1890/1900, this large electric station clock hails from Eiffel Tower clock maker Brillie in France. Featuring an austere octagonal and illuminating double-face, the gears are built in position to allow for double-sided time reading. Historically, they removed and replaced this clock, along with countless others, from its original French Train station post in the mid 1970s, migrating hundreds of clocks from their original home and a majority lost through transit -- making this a rare acquisition indeed. And to bring this beautiful find to the forefront, the circuitry has been replaced to fit the modern American outlet and power system.
