Footnotes

  • Thomas Condliff was the youngest of the Condliff family of clock makers founded by James in 1816. A considerable clock manufactory, Condliff produced a range from turret clocks to every type of domestic variety. But known for possibly the finest of all skeleton clocks, also noted for high grade regulators. Thomas' name first appeared in 1867 and whilst his skeleton clocks may not be as spectacular as his earlier examples, his regulators are always made to a high order. Thomas Condliff outlived all other family members and continued working into the 1920s.
