The Clocks and Barometers Department’s expertise and knowledge encompasses a wide range of devices dating from the 17th century to the present day, including longcase clocks, mantel, table, lantern and carriage clocks, marine chronometers and wheel, stick and aneroid barometers.
The department handles clocks by many of the leading clockmakers, including Benjamin Vulliamy, Joseph Knibb, George Graham, Thomas Tompion, Dent, Joseph Windmills and Charles Frodsham & Co.
Specialist collectors and private buyers of clocks and barometers from around the world are attracted to Tennants’ Fine Sales, which are held three times and year and include the finest examples handled by the department. Clocks and barometers can also be found in the Country House Sales and in the fortnightly Antiques and Interiors Sales.
The specialist is happy to advise you on all aspects of buying and selling clocks and barometers at auction and he also conducts regular Valuation Days at our Harrogate Office.
