Here's another "accidental" eBay purchase to share with you. Originally I assumed it was the same firm but now I'm not so sure. This William McCulloch having his firm in Maybole, South Ayrshire, Scotland. I do love it and wonder if there can be many others like it given it was probably used like a business card or advertising flyer. Any information greatly received especially if this is the same McCulloch from "Wales & McCulloch" in London.
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.

Hi, Nice find. William was my second great grandfather. 1867–1933ReplyDelete
BIRTH 05 MAY 1867 • Kirkoswald, Ayrshire DEATH 1933. His son (my great grandfather) was also a watchmaker and also called William. He fought in WW1 and ended up in Bridgwater, Somerset.
I think it is unlikely that there is any connection to wales though.
