A detailed reproduction of a Victorian steam fire engine, exact in every detail. Our models are fully functional and provided with all the neccessary accessories.


Our business was founded in 1826, but our firms roots in clockmaking go back long before that date.

If you require an English clock of the highest quality, made by a family firm with unrivaled experience, here is the place to look.

Clock & Mechanical Repairs
