Day Two - A New Clock

I would never have found this gorgeous piece of crockery if I wasn't looking for Johnson Brothers of Australia pieces for a friend who has been collecting Johnson Brothers forever.
This plate was probably part of a serving platter as it had an already drilled hole though the centre when I found it. I managed to find a clock mechanism but I had to enlarge the hole to make it fit. I was a little worried that I would break the plate, but a fine round file borrowed from hubby's aeroplane box (I put it back where I found it I promise) and 30mins later the hole was big enough.
I love my new clock!
