Wales & McCulloch

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 tried to post the clip but blogspot didn't like it. They were selling music boxes.

Any information greatly received especially if this is the same McCulloch from "Wales & McCulloch" in London.

During his lifetime, he helped mechanize the whole forest industry by the introduction of the first light-weight chainsaw, made a fortune on manufacturing turbochargers for the car industry, and founded four cities. Robert McCulloch’s most unexpected move, however, might have been buying and moving the old London Bridge, brick by brick, to Lave Havasu in Arizona.
