Synopses & Reviews
Of the many superior clocks made in England from 1714 to 1830, the majority were bracket clocks. In this definitive volume, Richard Barder, a retired dealer, shares his knowledge and admiration for these fascinating clocks. He discusses case making and the specialists linked to the clock maker, the workings of the Clockmakers' Company, the development of the bracket clock in the Georgian period, notable makers, lacquer-based bracket clocks, the export trade, and the purchase, repair and restoration of bracket clocks. The Georgian Bracket Clock has been acknowledged as the best single reference book on the subject and is essential for all dealers, collectors and students of horology.
Presents the history of 18th century and early 19th century English bracket clocks. Will appeal to the general reader, collector and specialist alike. The best single reference on the subject. A reprint of a much sought-after volume.
