According to Charles Allix (in his Carriage Clock book), Richard & Cie was founded in Paris in 1848 under a different name and added a branch in London in 1857. Then in 1867 the branch became Richard & Co. of 24 Cannon Street, London. In France, this would be Richard et Cie. Loomes says that the London business lasted until 1881. Allix also says that the inscription "R & Co" without the full trademark probably denotes a clock handled by Richard but not made by them. The Richard trademark contains an R and C with a snake's head in between, all enclosed within an oval. Terms & Conditions We strive very hard to offer a fast and efficient service at all times. After all, a happy customer is potentially a returning customer. However, even we are 'human', and although such occurrences are very rare, if any purchase is not as described please get in touch by either direct email or through the Ebay messaging service and we assure you that we will work to resolve any issues you may have. If any item is wrongly advertised a full refund will be issued on the safe arrival back with us of the purchased item. All we ask is that you contact us prior to returning the item so we know to expect a return. We try to be as flexible as possible and offer the following methods of payment. Cheques (GBP£ only), Postal Orders & Paypal. Although we agree it is convenient, Paypal is a costly method, to us, of accepting payment so if you can at all possibly use one of the first mentioned 3 choices we would be grateful but it is the customer’s choice and we thank you for which ever payment method you decide to use. We prefer personal cheque as a method of payment from UK based customers but sadly this facility is not available to overseas buyers because of excessive bank charges we incur for handling cheques outside the UK. Most of our items will show a recorded option price and a special delivery price for UK customers. Judging the postage required can be difficult when items are offered on a low start no reserve auction basis.If we have quoted only for special delivery it is because we firmly believe the item will exceed a value of £30 and like to make sure the item is fully insured(loss only for glass/ceramics) for its journey through the postal system. If for any reason your item does sell for in excess of £30 but you would prefer a cheaper option (recorded delivery), please let us know. As long as the item is sent by a method which requires a signature on delivery we do try to be as flexible as possible. For overseas buyers all goods will be sent via Royal Mail International Signed For. Some items will show an optional choice for insurance. This again is if an item sells for more than £30 extra insurance can be taken out for the full value of the item. If it is marked insurance included and item sells for example at £100 we have assumed it would and the insurance has already been included in your price. The overseas price may be seen as no price given, This will only happen if an item weighs in excess of 2Kg as the price at this weight bracket is determined by Geographical location so if interested please contact us for a quote to your country of residence. At checkout, if you have bought more than one item please wait until we send you an invoice as we always combine postage costs. We want you to be happy and return again and again which is something we feel the customer will not do if they feel they have been grossly or unfairly charged for postage. Please note under no circumstances will we send any goods by international surface mail. Nor will we send to an address if paid by Paypal which is not the registered address through Paypal. We regularly have customers buying/winning an itm but wish to wait a little longer before settling their bill as they may want to bid on further items, This is not a problem what so ever. Just drop us a quick note saying you wish to delay your payment as you intend to purchase further goods. We will send you a combined invoice when you are finished purchasing. We also appreciate that buying online is not the same as seeing or feeling an item and we do try to provide good and clear images of all items. However if you need more information on an item please request more specific details or photographs.
