Antique Clocks for sale
- This category holds Antique clocks for sale in South Africa - Johannesburg.
- We specialise in Longcase or Grandfather clocks.
- An Antique clock is at least a hundred years old.
- A clock's age can be determined with reasonable accuracy when one knows what to look for.
- A good starting point is to establish whether a clock maker is listed in Brian Loomes' book "Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World." This will give one an idea of the maker's date of birth and death and location.
- Value is another issue: Timber, movement complexity, rarity, known maker and provenance, restoration and condition - all of these factors play a role in establishing the value of a clock.
