J. H. Mulford, production, 1842-n.d. John H. Mulford was an independent maker in Albany, New York prior to the time Fasoldt thrived there. He invented his unusual deadbeat escapement and patented (patent number 2465) it on February 21, 1842. Less than a handfull of these extremely rare 3/4 plate KW movements exist--just one ever appearing at public auction in the Atwood sale.

Default J. H. Mulford, production, 1842-n.d.

John H. Mulford was an independent maker in Albany, New York prior to the time Fasoldt thrived there. He invented his unusual deadbeat escapement and patented (patent number 2465) it on February 21, 1842. Less than a handfull of these extremely rare 3/4 plate gllt KW movements exist--just one example ever appearing at public auction in the Atwood sale and recently repeated at the June 2014 Bonham sale. However, a possible patent model, all original and in gold of different design also appeared at the Bonham 2014 sale. Approx 4 or 5 known to date.
