Appeal over stolen clocks

10 November 2008Written by ATG Reporter

Two fine early 19th century clocks were among more than 100 mostly antique items stolen in Kingston upon Thames on October 10.

Both clocks, in the owner's family for more than a century, had been very recently professionally overhauled by a reputable horologist and were in excellent condition.

They are an ebonised brass inlaid bracket clock c.1810 with a convex painted dial signed G&R Cathro, London, seen here, and a mahogany longcase c.1820 with a square painted dial signed James Gorham, Kensington.

Silver, jewellery, porcelain and eight oil paintings including family portraits were also stolen.

Contact Kingston upon Thames CID on 020 8247 4946 quoting the crime reference number 0410878/08.
