I am appealing for any information about clockmaker Andrew Latter of Speldhurst in Kent. Of the two longcase clocks by Latter that I am aware of, both have brass dials with eight-day movements. One case is oak and the other black japanned (presumably on oak) and appear to date from the third quarter of the eighteenth-century.
Britten’s Old Clocks and Watches and their Makers makes no reference of Latter, though I haven’t had the opportunity to look him up in Baillie and Loomes’ Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World.
If any clockies read this blog and can shed any light on Andrew Latter I should be very grateful.
