Drocourt

I have been researching the clocks and lives of Pierre & Alfred Drocourt, and their families, for a number of years now and have unearthed information hitherto unknown which has greatly added to our knowledge of them, as well as debunking some previously held views and confirming others that were of uncertain origin. To read a summary of my work please go to the exhibition page and view the catalogue that was published to coincide with my 2014 Drocourt Exhibition of forty-plus clocks as well as revealing some of the previously unknown history of Drocourt. This research, along with that on the Jacot family, is still on-going and I would be most grateful to hear of any clocks by both Drocourt & Jacot to add to my database.

Price: £1,600.00
