Rare & Fine Clocks

A single owner collection of notable makers

26/04/2024     Latest News

Our notable consignments this year include a single owner collection of clocks from a deceased estate which will be sold on the 27th April 2024. The previous owner collected over a period of 35 years, and include a variety of examples from carriage clocks to longcases.

One of the finest quality pieces has created quite a stir in the saleroom, a timepiece from William IV period by prominent maker Viner & Co. 

Founded by Charles Edward Viner who was born in 1788, and apprenticed to Thomas Savage in 1802, he later traded from several London addresses, including 233 Regent Street where this beautiful carriage clock was made, stamped to the back plate. It is safe to say that he made some of the finest mantel and carriage clocks during this era, and the piece we have the pleasure of selling is no exception.

With a fine gilt bronze case, housing seconds and calendar dials that complete the trio of dials, original key and travelling case, the pre-auction estimate of £4000-6000 we hope it soars well above on the day!
