Great Central Railwayana Auction Sale 249, Auction Lot 448
Lot 448 A mid to late 19th century GNR 10 inch oak-cased roundhead fusee clock from Potts of Leeds and typical of that supplier. Overall height: 12½". Dial surround of standard sectional construction containing a replaced clip-in bezel. Box with two side doors and bottom door closed with a lock (no key), indistinct rubber stamp 3*26 to the rear. Dial written Potts & Sons Leeds with G. N. R. 648 in a later hand. Gut fusee movement held between plates with shaped shoulders and feet. Complete with pendulum, two winders, and documents detailing work done in 2006 and its sale (as number 648) to the station master at Hatton (LM Region, ex GWR) in 1966. The only record of GNR number 648 (LNER 11002) is an 8 inch clock from Walker (whose clocks were of a very different style) used at Caythorpe (south of Lincoln) and seems unlikely to be this clock. £500-800
 This lot sold for £320.
