The LGI Potts Clock

Potts of Leeds made this clock to commemorate the opening of the Leeds General Infirmary in 1869 where it hung proudly in the main entrance. Over the years it had sustained damage and been left in a store room. I was fortunate to have been asked to restore the casing and glass so it could be hung for the LGI's 150th anniversary celebrations.

The verre eglomise glazed door had been broken, fortunately a lot of the broken glass was in the casing so I could determine the pattern. This was then transferred to the new glass panel in gold leaf. The new panel was joined to existing glasswork with a curved brass bead I fashioned and mounted in the door.

All that was left was some minor repairs to the carcasse and a good clean and wax.

Now it is back in pride of place at the top of the stairs in the entrance to the old LGI building.
