DescriptionThis lovely Edwardian mantle clock was made by Krakauer & Son of Barnsley. The Krakauer family were Prussian Jewish immigrants and Max Krakauer opened a jewellery shop on Church Street in Barnsley town centre.

The family was part of Barnsley's small Jewish community, which had a synagogue on Castlereagh Street between 1903 and 1946.
