The photos below, show a clock with the name 'Nalder Brothers & Co. London' on the dial. We cannot find anything about this make or retailer. As it is a regulator used in a workshop it could be the name of the company that owned it.
Note: Due to the dynamic nature of the addition of Trade Directories to our library, these results may show additional dates to the text above.

English London 1840?? regulator clock???
Pendulum 42" long, heavy but not lead filled ? Mercury, non magnetic case. Little shattered wood piece on top of pendulum bob don't know what it is for. Only the hood survived and I suspect the movement and the hood were married together sometime. The movement hold down bolts, one had been modified to allow the weight cord to follow its correct path. I suspect the hold down bolts were added later as the location for the modified one is wrong. The hood is a disaster and shows evidence of being altered to fit the movement in. The rest of the case is gone. The weight is lead filled brass tube 6lbs.
I have cleaned the movement and am starting on the repairs. The movement does not show excessive wear and has been modified at some time by adding two ceramic cams and electrical contacts at 55 minutes and 60 minutes.
Nalder were instrument makers and went out of business in 1894.
The above information and dates are correct to the best of our knowledge based on the current books etc in our library at the time this page was last written or amended. Please be aware that any dates given are not necessarily the start and finish dates of this maker, they are just the dates that it is likely that he was working based on the information we have found. These are taken from trade directories etc and it is quite possible that they were working for longer periods than shown above.

This web site, was run by Rosemary Harrison-Smith with the help of Tony Harrison-Smith FBHI, was started in 1997 and it held information that we have found about various clock and watchmakers, and has 35,758 records in its database. The information comes from listings published in books and trade directories that we had in our library, giving dates that makers are known to have been working. The database includes 31,947 individual trade directory entries from 363 trade directories and more detailed biographies for 4276 makers and retailers.
The information is not necessarily all there is to know about the maker, but it is a digest of all we have found in our researches.
We specialise in British and Irish makers. The site is now archived so that researchers can view the information held in the database for a daily charge.
