Edward Cockey, Warminster

Edward Cockey was a member of a clockmaking family and one of the most important makers of the period. He was probably the most famous Wiltshire maker.

This clock, of eight day duration, has a five pillar movement and internal countwheel striking mechanism, dates to around 1715-20.

The dial is ten and a half inch square and has fine engraving between the large cherub head spandrels.

The clock is complete with a pair of brass cased weights.

The later ebonised case, made sympathetically in contemporary period style is 85” tall.
