CLARK (W)

A company based at 232 Oxford Street, London, makers of horse and garden clippers, and sheep shears. In the 1870s and 80s they also produced a range of long-handled reciprocating knife machines with rear rollers and collecting trays for use on slopes, rough grass, and standing crops. The "Astor" grass clipper made by Flexa in the 1950s was a modern version of these Clark's machines.
