Dating from the first half of the 20th century, a wall fitting perpetual calendar of classic, utilitarian design. The round, moulded frame is crafted from solid oak with three rectangular glazed panels clearly displaying the day, date and month on linen rolls. These are housed within the oak plywood box to the rear of the piece and are adjusted by means of six simple wooden pegs. Such calendars hung on the walls of banks and public offices - the bold, simple typography enabling visitors to easily see the date. This example remains in well used but fine, original condition. Circa 1920-30.
