Crafted by English Clock Systems Ltd in London, England, circa 1960.

The clock is mains powered (240v) each dial independently and time can be set and adjusted via the two adjuster rods to the underside of the clock.

ABOUT THE PERIOD
Mid-century modern is a design style that emerged in the mid-20th century, roughly between the 1940s to the 1960s, and has since become a timeless and influential aesthetic. It is characterized by a clean and minimalist design, with an emphasis on functionality, simplicity, and form. This style often features sleek, organic shapes, bold geometric patterns, and a limited color palette with natural, muted tones. Mid-century modern furniture often incorporates materials like wood, metal, and glass, and is marked by a focus on clean lines and simplicity. The mid-century modern style has become synonymous with a sense of sophistication and elegance, and is a popular choice for interior design projects, as well as for furniture and home decor.
