Footnotes

  • The rear of the dial bears various repairers marks, including 'Cleaned May 14 1873', 'Cleaned July 30 1881, G Bark(?)y' and another 'Sept 94 JB'. Phillip Corduroy is listed as working 1679- 1692. He was apprenticed to Robert Seigniour in 1672 and freed in 1679. The ten inch dial and beautiful oyster veneered case of this clock would indicate that it was made and sold by Corderoy early on in his career.
