Unsigned lantern clock of the Civil War period made in Lothbury, London Anonymous lantern clock of the Queen Anne period Handsome lantern clock made about1670 by John Quelch of Oxford Rare 'picture frame clock', unsigned and made in London in the late seventeenth century

An unsigned lantern clock of the Civil War period made in Lothbury, London, originally with balance wheel, converted about 1900 to an eight-day, two-handed bracket clock of the highest quality chiming the quarter hours on two bells, by the celebrated Percy Webster of London, of whom the late Alan Lloyd wrote in the 1950s “the greatest expert on old English clocks we have ever had”. He was the father of Malcolm Webster, who in 1913 wrote the famous book with Herbert Ceskinsky ‘English Domestic Clocks’. The movement is numbered 6015, perhaps indicating it was made in 1915. Not restored recently but in full working order.

A very rare type of clock, sometimes called a 'picture frame clock', of which only a handful are known with the original 'frame', this one being a two-hander, unsigned and made in London in the late seventeenth century with original verge pendulum and its original IRON frame. The dial is only five inches square and just how tiny this clock is can be seen when compared alongside a lantern clock of standard size.
