Large format. c.1880 A single movement mounted in a dual movement case. Note the large, elaborate manufacturers' logo below the timer. The time lock movement is identical in design and function to that found in their smaller format models. It is unclear what the rationale was for this design other than an attempt to make a larger time better match in proportion to a larger combination lock where space permits. This type of marketing was widespread in the industry as ever larger time locks and number of movements accompanied larger doors. 4 7/8"w x 4 5/8"h x 2 5/8"d. Case #4273 Movement #4156. file 92
