Footnotes

  • Literature: Mercer: 'The Frodshams. The Story of a family of Chronometer Makers, AHS publications, 1981 pp22. Carriage clocks signed by Parkinson and Frodsham are particularly rare - it would appear that there was some crossover between the firm and James McCabe. Two clocks by McCabe with very similar handles are illustrated in Roberts, Fig 20-15, number 3076 and Fig 20-17, number 3099.
