    Special Notice

    No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.


    Saleroom Notice

    We no longer believe this clock dates from the 18th Century. It is probably an early 20th Century copy and being sold as is.
