    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.

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