Grandfather Clock - unsure title possibly reads C Kelvey Cainsboro
New Zealand


Acquired from

For sale

The clock has handpainted numbers, 1 - 12 and in a faded colour above each number from 1 - 12, are numbers 5 to 60, (eg 5 is above 1, 10 is above 2 etc) also below the number 30 is painted 1776, possibly the year. I'm not an expert with wood, but best guess is it is mahogany. Height 2.10cm x Width 45cm x Depth 23cm The weight and swinging pendulum still with clock, missing is the turn key.


Sorry, no history, father-inlaw who owned it, passed away in 1968, with all the history and knowledge about it.
