Voysey's clocks: miscellany
After Wednesday's post, I've been reading a lot about Voysey and his clocks.
He didn't design all that many, but many contemporary designers - and several contemporary to Voysey - have built clocks in his style. Here are a few originals & paeans to them:
- Christopher Vickers' clocks, mentioned yesterday, among which most are after Voysey;
- Dickins Auctioneers sold several original Voysey clocks, notably a painted mantel clock for £141,000, an unpainted version for £72,400, and a third for £7,400;
- I've got a very high-resolution image of the painted mantel clock available on Flickr (thanks to the Victoria & Albert Museum for that) - this is the clock that was bought from John Jesse for £30,000 in 1998. It is presumed to have belonged to Voysey himself and was made circa 1896;
- Liberty & Co produced a striking polished pewter and enamel clock "in style of Charles Voysey";
- Stickley & Morawe's clocks were clearly influenced very strongly by Voysey; and
- Hill House Antiques has a Voysey-influenced (complete with heart inlay!) clock for sale.
