Tavern clocks

I have been fortunate to acquire a small collection of tavern clocks - the prince of wall clocks - which will be uploaded one by one when their restoration is complete. There are early shield dials, and white round dialed examples, some with lacquer work, others with 18th century prints on the doors, together with some more domestic ones made of mahogany - so tavern clock afficianados - watch this space!

Future fairs

 

We had a good fair at the NEC in April, with a lot of interest in the classic trunk dial by Vulliamy, with a wooden dial and numbered no less than six times on the movement, case and pendulum. With two tavern clocks - by Upjohn of Exeter and a mahogany - more domestic - example by Desbois and Wheeler, there was a lot of activity around the stand. My next fair is not until the end of September in Harrogate, so the next few months will be spent in loading more clocks onto the website.

For overseas customers, you might like to note that with the continuing poor performance of the pound sterling, some of the clocks have become up to 20% more affordable for you!

Website launched

My website has been live about three years now, and I hope that all who have visited it find it clear and easy to follow - as well as containing interesting clocks. We are currently working on a modification to make it easier to read on a mobile phone or tablet. Anyone who has suggestions for making it better is asked to contact me with their ideas. I'm sure there is room for improvement!

New stock

I will now be uploading some new clocks, and I hope to add some more in the weeks to come.  Two Vulliamy wall clocks will be added, with a third still in restoration. In the bracket clock department there will be some nice small Regency additions, as well as an exquisite small bracket clock by W. Page of Great Portland Street, -  who described himself as 'London's West End clockmaker'.
