A very rare survivor - complete with the original strings which move the paddle boat - turning the paddle wheel and raising / lowering the boats funnel to fit under the bridge while simultaneously turning the calender in the clock tower. Measures 365mm x 230mm. [lacks original ribbon for hanging - some edge and corner wear with some chipping and marginal loss as shown in the photo - some wear to the bridge under which the boat travels - mechanism still in good working order]
