Description

Vintage Railway Station Flip Clock

An original large steel illuminated ‘flip clock’ from Birmingham New Street Station, circa 1960s…

A large steel ‘flip clock’ salvaged from Birmingham New Street railway station. We understand the clocks (we have two identical) were originally fitted to the station in the 1960s, yet taken down in the 1980s and stored ever since

The clocks are offered with an authentic and used patina, yet they are currently un-tested. The clocks themselves are very heavy, with a steel shell surrounding the clock mechanism and protected by a Perspex screen. They are also double sided…

The insides seem quite clean, therefore suggesting these could be pretty simply re-wired. The patina on the steel casing is fantastic, giving that on trend industrial feel. These would look awesome re-wired and illuminated in a restaurant or cafe, for example. We also thought as an alternative, maybe fix a piece of glass to the top and you have yourself a stunning statement coffee table…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are a surface scuffs and abrasions across the entire piece with paint chipping. The Perspex shows scratches and surface wounds in areas, yet structurally it is good on one side. The other side will require a new piece of Perspex. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

As highlighted above, we do have two identical clocks, this listing is just for one. If you are interested in the two, please do get in touch…
