Handley & Moore

Information about clockmakers Handley & Moore

Handley & Moore was a clock-making partnership between George Handley and John Moore of Clerkenwell Close, London. They were fine and well-known clockmakers working from 1798 until the death of Handley in 1824 after which Moore continued alone.

The partnership supplied many movements and clocks to top grade makers of the period and used a number of distinctive features on their movements, such as the style of border engraving to the backplate, a feature also used by Thwaites & Reed, another supplier of high quality movements.

Both Handley and Moore were apprentices to John Thwaites in the late 18th century.
