Longcase Clocks for Charterhouse Auction

. August 12, 2008

The Charterhouse sale on Friday 12th September looks to be a real treat for clock collectors as they have the opportunity to see and buy from a large private collection of nearly 20 Dorset longcase clocks.

The collection includes makers such as Edward Sanders of Pool, Peter Selby of Wareham are predominantly brass dials with a mixture of eight day and thirty hour duration clocks.

Estimates start at just a few hundred pounds up to nearly £2,000 for an eight day longcase clock by Shippard of Poole with the added benefit of having an unusual rocking ship to the arch.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their two auctions in September with clocks, militaria and collectors’ items on the 12th and the sale on the 20th of classic cars, motorbikes & automobilia.
