I have a Pennwood clock similar to the one shown in the attached picture but all of it's ivory coloured fins are missing. I think the model name is either Imperial or Century.

I want to make some replacement fins from ivory coloured perspex but need to confirm the outer dimensions.

Does anyone have one of these clocks complete with original fins? If so the width and depth measurements would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve

A popular design in the deco period of late 30s may have been copied from Sparks Whittington aka "Sparton" and their blue mirrored, finned creation, "sled" 557, but who knows whether the chicken preceded the egg.
If noone pops up with measurements, I'd go with the picture and probable ratios. Looks like about quarter inch front, mebbe an inch on sides. Probably 3/16 thick. G'luck matey!
