Nottingham Clock Maker

Post by Lebonpeter@aol.com » Sat Dec 29, 2018 8:49 pm

I have a wall clock, probably Victorian with the name M W Drape King's Walk Nottingham on the face. Is this a known clock maker ? as I have been unable to find out any information about this person. The writing on the clock is worn but i'm fairly sure I have given the right initials. Many thanks. Peter.

None of our books list a maker with this name. It could have been specially made by someone for Mr. Drape or by a maker who only made a couple of clocks. Do you have a photo you could send us and then we can try and date your clock.
