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.
