Book Details

A Guide to Dating English Antique Clocks” provides a unique pictorial record, as well as collated information, to help dealers and collectors to date English clocks by their case styles. Using examples from the famous Wetherfield collection – the greatest collection of entirely English domestic clocks ever made by a private collector – there are 220 separate photographs showing the whole range of designs. The longcase series is very representative and to fill gaps in the historical record of bracket (table) clocks, a series of style drawings is provided. In addition, the book specifically deals with dating a clock by its movement, dial and case, with guidance on ‘improvements’ and ‘marriages’, when a case and a movement do not belong to each other. There are also notes on the makes represented.
