Hello,

Using this site which Identifies Antique Clock makers, I could not find either of the names you have given. http://www.antiqueclockspriceguide.com/ill8.php#grandfather

The site has an area that you can search for the clock makers and neither were listed. Do you have further information on the clocks, or pictures? Joan

I do not have pictures of the clocks, I did research myself on www.clockswatches.com

and found the names of the makers but you have to pay in pounds(england) to obtain

info.....was not sure about the pounds/dollars exchange. These clocks are for sale

by a friend..want to make a valid offer but don't know where to start.

Thanks

Hello,

This link will help with the pounds conversion: http://coinmill.com/GBP_USD.html

We do know their production was 1600's-1740's. I can opt out and see if someone else can assist you. Please let me know. It is very hard with antiques as there is only one listing for XXXXX XXXXX. Joan.

I am going to opt out and see if one of the other Experts can assist you. Joan
