     s a collector of antique clocks and sundials for over 35 years, I have designed this website to illustrate a small selection of interesting and unrestored examples that - in my opinion - have a certain historical, primitive, quirky, or rustic charm about them. I am not, and do not, regard myself to be an expert on the subject. However, having owned and inspected well over 150 examples - I do feel qualified to give my own opinion about them. Any dates and views given are based on my own private research and experience as a collector and must not be taken as an 'Authority' or ' Expert ' view.


   am always looking to purchase other, and similar items to illustrate - so please do Contact Me should you have a genuine early examples For Sale.










Thanks for visiting!
