This Shibyama decorated ivory timepiece is a highlight of Derek Roberts Antiques’ and Patric Capon Fine Antique Clocks’ joint exhibition of carriage and other travelling clocks from October 29 to November 3 at 25 Shipbourne Road in Tonbridge, Kent.
The c.1900 carriage clock by London makers
W. Thornhill & Co, priced at £8000, is one of over 60 clocks in
the exhibition; the first time that Derek Roberts' annual
exhibition has been held with another dealer.
Paul Archard of Derek Roberts said: "This
means that we can pool our expertise and also display a larger
selection of fine clocks than we could have done individually."
The show mixes English clocks by the likes
of Dent, Frodsham, McCabe and Thomas Cole with French and Swiss
