James Edwards

1 Results

James Edwards is recorded as working in Stourbridge, Worcestershire from before 1829, when he is known to have been in the High Street, until 1853 by which time he is known to be working at Hagley Road. By 1860 all records of him stop so presumably he had ceased trading or died at this point. Edwards was probably the first of the skeleton clock makers to produce top quality pieces on a fairly large scale, pre-dating both Evans of Handsworth and Smiths of Clerkenwell by at least ten years. He is probably best known for his glass wheeled examples, a number of which he exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
