Clockmaking Family: Gill

21st March 2022

Tracy-Leon Barham:

Thanks for your prompt reply Bob. I saw the tinderlighter at an arms fair, and hope to do a deal that will bring it my way, it has no stand and it looks small enough to fit into a pocket just as the "Flinker" I think its called? that was used by smugglers for signalling? will get some images to you somehow if I get it, Trace.

Clockmaking Family: Gill

20th March 2022

Tracy-Leon Barham:

Hello Bob been reading your messages about the Gill family of clockmakers, and would value your opinion on the following. I have been offered a "Tinder lighter" marked "Gill" on one side and "Rye" on the other, would have been made about 1800. Would Gill have made other items other than clocks? I look forward to your reply with interest. Thank you for your time. Kind regards, Trace.
