The Clocks, Barometers and Scientific Instruments department holds two focused and thoughtfully curated Fine auctions annually, in Spring and Autumn, with other pieces included in the regular Interiors auctions. Single owner collections often appear in the Fine sales.
Leighton Gillibrand heads the department and is a long tenured enthusiast for the field. His aim is to consistently provide an extremely high standard of research and scholarship in the presentation of all works. His auction catalogues are internationally recognised for the quality of information provided and are trusted by leading collectors and institutions. The catalogue also serves as an important record for the vendor whilst providing detailed and relevant information to the buyer.
The department has achieved numerous record prices (including the highest price for a clock sold in the UK regional market) and enjoys the highest selling rates in this market.
