A collection of replica clocks, predominantly based on the designs of CFA Voysey.
Each clock I make has been meticulously researched by consulting both
original drawings and measuring period examples.
The dials and faces are carefully inlaid using a variety of materials appropriate to the
original design, whilst employing alternatives such as ivorine in place of real ivory
and bog oak instead of ebony for ecological reasons.
The clock cases are all fitted with polished brass clockwork movements with
handmade brass hands, special rear door knobs etc.
The oil painted and ebony versions of the Tempus Fugit clocks are gilded with 24ct gold leaf.
The following images show some of the Voysey clocks that are known still to exist.
Followed by a link to my own collection, some of which I keep in stock and
all of which are available to order.
If you have further images or information I would be delighted to hear from you.
