Leigh Extence

Derval Antiques Following the retirement of Derek Roberts, Leigh Extence has taken on running the antique clock business Derval Antiques, with the clocks being re-photographed and research updated. The clocks are available to view via the Clocks for Sale link above. An online catalogue will be available soon. Leigh Extence is a specialist in fine antique clocks having worked alongside many of the worlds leading dealers, collectors and institutions. To read a more comprehensive biography click on the link above. As well as a dealer Leigh operates as an independent horological consultant and has worked as both a researcher & presenter on the BBC magazine programme, The Antiques Show as well as writing for many national publications. He is a world authority on the carriage clocks & history of two of the leading Parisian makers of the 19th century; the Jacot and Drocourt families, with the research into both on-going. In 2004 Leigh was elected a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, being raised to the Livery the following year. Leigh Extence is member of the British Antique Dealers Association. A large part of the research that I publish alongside the clock information, especially with regard to carriage clocks, is freshly sourced by myself and therefore previously unknown; in some cases having taken years to gather and verify. I am of the belief that knowledge should be shared, but I would kindly ask that any of my research details used elsewhere bears an acknowledgement to this effect.

Stock Update

Further restored stock added in May including examples by Drocourt and Jacot, along with the Derval collection. Two further carriage clocks added in June.
