    Does anyone here has some information on a Scottish clockmaker "James Bandy" from Edinburgh?? I cannot find anything on this clockmaker and I would like to know what period he was working. Think it was second half of the 18th century. Thanks in advance,
    Peter

    Loomes lists: "Bandy, James. Edinburgh date uncertain - 19c?"

    What are you looking at? A longcase?

    He's listed in Whyte's Clockmakers & Watchmakers of Scotland 1453-1900, the entry reads "Bandy, James. Clock & watchmaker, Edinburgh, about 1800".

    I always like single sheet silvered dials, very simply elegant in appearance. Slightly off topic, a have a Scottish single fusee mantle c. 1820, and a Scottish double fusee Victorian bracket clock by James Muirhead Glasgow. Both movements are simple in appearance, and a bit more substantial in weight than the typical movements of the same period.
