Beaver - 1st Edition

These beautiful clocks are considered to be one of the most desirable of the Pequegnat wall clocks. As noted in "The Pequegnat Story" by Jane and Costas Varkaris: It is of interest to note that this model of clock honoured the beaver because, not only is the beaver Canada's national animal, but the figure of the beaver forms a prominent part of the coat-of-arms of the City of Kitchener.

The Beaver was featured in the 1918 catalogue. It is interesting to note the different sizes of the pendulum bobs of these two clocks. The smaller bob is what you typically see in the somewhat smaller 2nd Issue Beaver introduced in the 1920 catalogue. Both pendulums look original to the clocks so one could suppose that the clock with the smaller bob may have been built closer to the 1920 period. The large bob clock is finished in Mahogany and the small bob clock is in Oak.

Both clocks are 8 day time and strike (on tuned rods) with a 5 inch porcelain dial. The clock measures 35 1/4 inches in height and 14 inches in width and is 7 iches deep.

This clock is not that hard to find for sale, however be prepared to spend some serious money.
