Description

With a 29.5cm arched brass dial inscribed on target in break arch Thos.Higherns, Ladbrook an eight day movement striking on a bell with seconds hand and date wheel. Circa 1760. Ideally in need of a service and some minor repairs. The clock runs well and keeps remarkably good time, I can say this with confidence at its been in my own home (and still is) for the last 6 years and itís never lost a beat, however the date wheel is currently inoperative, and the chime arrives every hour approximately 10 mins late!.
Thomas Higherns (otherwise lorns or lrons) was a clock maker, silversmith & gunsmith based at High Street, Alcester, Warwickshire, from at least 1759 until his death in 1808. He also signed clocks (as here) from Ladbroke Nr Southam in Warwickshire where he also retailed from. A very similar clock is illustrated in Mc Kennan , J, Clockmakers & Watchmakers of Central England figs, 8.79 & 8.80.
