Our quarterly Fine Art auctions regularly feature fine carriage clocks, traditional bracket and mantel clocks, wall clocks, longcase clocks, aneroid and stick barometers
Antique clocks have long since been stellar performers at auction, particularly antique longcase clocks, mantle clocks and other timepieces by some of the best makers, including Tompion, Frodsham, Dent, Eardley Norton, Edward East, George Graham, Jaegar LeCoultre and Breget.
Examples of 17th century clocks, known as the 'Golden Age' of clockmaking and widely acclaimed as a revolutionary period in horology, are particularly highly sought after. Both modern and vintage clocks have the additional benefit of appealing to investors due to their exemption from Capital Gains tax.
The barometer has been an integral part of British life since the eighteenth century and was heavily relied upon by the aristocracy as a valuable tool to forecast weather. Our auctions regularly feature a selection of these wonderful scientific instruments.
