Over 60 of the lots in this catalogue come from the estate of life-long collector and connoisseur of fine antique clocks, Harry J. O’Connor III of Laguna Beach, CA (February 3, 1944 – March 3, 2016). Jerry (as his friends and family called him) amassed a veritable treasure trove of interesting and beautiful art and objects throughout his lifetime, and was always improving and adding to his collections. John Moran Auctioneers is honored to have been chosen to handle the pieces Jerry cherished most, including his exceptional assemblage of clocks.
