Len Salzer (1922-2000) - London
« on: Thursday 28 December 17 10:45 GMT (UK) »
Len was my first cousin (1x removed),and I have recently been in contact with his family (lovely people).  He made a replica of a very famous clock (replica shown in the photo).  In 2004, the replica was sold in New York for 500,000 (the family had donated the clock to a museum).

The following link is to the Southerbys catalogue: [url]http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2004/masterpieces-from-the-time-museum-n08039/lot.617.html[url]

I was lucky enough to have been given a photocopy of a photo of Len with the clock, which I have taken a photo.   Can one of you clever people improve it at all?  I do have a larger file if that helps, but it was too big to upload here.

Tried to bring out the clock a bit more but had to compromise with cousin Len.

A terrific craftsman that's for sure. I wonder how many hours he put in.

Thank you ll for your work, I can send them to his nephew and nieces who I am sure will love them all.
