Gents of Leicester were founded by John Thomas Gent in 1872 and specialised in producing electric timepieces principally for semi-public and industrial use alongside fire alarm systems, telephones, transformers and related products. The firm initially operated from Faraday Road, Leicester, later (after WWII) moving to nearby Kibworth. They were bought-out by the multi-national organisation, Chloride, in 1981. The current lot appears to be a rare variant in that it incorporates an integral extension to the lower right hand of the bed casting to take an additional accessory.
