Another Bradford-made Clock

The Museum now has a third clock that was made in Bradford on Avon.

This one, signed by Edward Hopkins, is just the face and movement, without the long case in which it would have originally been housed. It has a brass face that is decorated with figures representing the four seasons in the spandrels (corners). Behind the face is an eight-day movement that drives hours, minutes and seconds hands and the days of the month. Edward Hopkins was working in Bradford from the 1780s, died in 1803 and was buried in Winsley.
