I came across this clock key for sale on eBay apparently for a clock manufactured by "Wales & McCulloch". They seemed to be a London-based firm with a shop at 20 Ludgate Hill. I haven't yet managed to track down who this McCulloch was or where he came from so it's still an unsolved mystery! Any further information about Wales & McCulloch would be gratefully received. And yes.. I did buy the key :) EDIT: Added a few other beautiful items made by W & M also below.

I found a reference to "Wales and McCulloch" in The Standard (London, UK) on Tuesday November 1, 1887.ReplyDelete
22-20 Ludgate Hill is the address listed.
I tried to post the clip but blogspot didn't like it. They were selling music boxes.
Ah that’s a shame it won’t attach. Thanks for finding that though :)ReplyDelete
