Patrick Marney 1946-2021

Patrick began his working life as an apprentice to scientific and meteorological instrument makers Casella in London, joining his father’s company Garner and Marney in Clerkenwell in the 1960s specialising in the repair and restoration of antique barometers and scientific instruments learning from not only his father William but also an outstanding group of craftsmen who would, as a team, go on to produce the finest and largest collection of handmade reproduction mercurial barometers of the time as well as continuing the manufacture of the highest quality extensive range of reproduction antique material and replacement parts for longcase, lantern, bracket and skeleton clocks, mercurial and aneroid barometers.

Moving to Long Melford in 1984 Patrick continued to specialise in the restoration and repair of antique mercurial, wheel, stick, marine barometers and scientific instruments for major public and private collections including significant collections held by the Science Museum London, Whipple Museum Cambridge, The Mariner’s Museum Newport and Harvard University Collection Boston before retiring to Dickleburgh, Norfolk in 2003 where he continued lecturing, writing and co-writing articles for antique and scientific instrument publications for many more years.

The entire collection will be offered without reserve.

This auction will be followed by the regular Home & Interiors Henry Room auction of pictures and furniture.
