Table clocks were nevertheless seldom made in England during the second half of the 16th Century but a few interesting pieces were produced under the influence of French Protestants who had fled religious persecutions to seek refuge in London after 1572.


«A highly important and extremely rare
silver and silver gilt musical clock,
3rd quarter of the 16th Century, by an unknown
English maker who possibly worked
with foreign craftsmen in London, the movement
with its long fuses and the verge control
of the carillon train combined with
the days of the week suggesting a French origin
(Value : US $ 500,000-820,000)»

English bracket and long case clocks generally fetch high prices at auction, especially those pieces made by great makers such as Thomas Earnshaw (1749-1829) who notably produced observatory regulators, Joseph Windmills, who worked between 1670 and circa 1720 notably producing turntable clocks, George Graham, who conceived stunning bracket clocks, John Grant (1781-1810), who made longcase regulators and the Marwick Markham firm, active during the 18th Century which notably produced musical table clocks.

«A George I silver-mounted striking bracket clock
by George Graham
(Value : US $ 50,000-70,000)»

A month-going long case regulator
with equation of time, by George Graham, circa 1750
(Value : US $ 50,000-80,000)»
