This detailed overview provides a unique visual record, as well as collated information, to help dealers and collectors 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 - a beautiful range of accompanying photographs depicts 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. Additionally, 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 makers represented, neatly rounding off this must-have for all antique clock aficionados or those considering bringing their clock onto "Antiques Roadshow".
