The Kleiser Clock, made in York, given as a 21st birthday gift from Kiplin tenants to the landlord's daughter

Birthday gift chimes with hall’s happy relationship with tenants
THIS Victorian clock dates to around 1870 and is currently on public display in the Dining Room at Kiplin, where visitors can still hear it chime. The inner chapter ring is inscribed A + J Kleiser, a clock maker based in York. Andrew and Joseph Kleiser of York are listed in ‘Watch and Clockmakers of the World’ Vol2 by B. Loomes as working from 1866-1885.
