    Hello,

    Nice acquisition.....

    Per Tony Mercer's book Chronometer Makers of World - Charles Shepherd and later Charles Shepherd & Sons was really a chronometer assembler using Pooles movements. The company was located at the Leadenhall address from 1851 - 1884.

    He suggested that the company sold other navigational instruments and some regulator clocks. He had at least one patent related to electrical clocks.

    I have moved this thread to the Chronometers forum to see if additional responses might be forthcoming.

    Hi Tclock,

    Well, the Greenwich Observatory thought highly enough of Shepherd!

    Was it Shepard that had something to do with the Time Ball?
