A new exhibition of antique clocks is to open at the Lewes galleries of W.F.Bruce Antiques on Saturday 5 December

The clocks will be on display until 19 December and this will be an ideal opportunity to see two very different types of clockmaking.

Six rare and pretty 18th century 30 hour hooded wall clocks will be on view, two by the renowned maker Richard Comber of Lewes (1742–1824). A highly successful horologist, Comber is recognised in the town by a plaque celebrating his presence and place of work in the High Street.

Representing the 19th century and the height of precision horology will be 12 good English 8 day regulators, chosen not just as fine examples of excellence in clockmaking, but also to show a great sense of style, ingenuity and imagination. These will include pieces by some of the finest makers in the country.

Prices range from £3,500 - £45,000.
