ANTIQUE LANTERN CLOCKS
Through our own original researches in ancient records into the life and work of former clockmakers we have compiled thirty reference books and hundreds of articles about antique British clocks and their makers. These books include the massive, (500+-page 1100+- photograph) title 'Lantern Clocks', published in 2008, the only book on this subject in print today.
Our researches into the background history and styles of British clocks have revolutionised understanding of the subject and of the makers themselves. Several of our books have become definitive texts and are used as standard reference books by museums, libraries, auction houses and collectors the world over. So much so that even many of the terms today in general use to describe certain types of clock features were first coined in these books.
Brian Loomes is probably the best-known name worldwide in antique clocks and Britain's longest-established clock dealer, a name known by everyone connected with antique clocks.
We have over 118 articles by Brian Loomes on clock collecting, clockmakers and clock care and identification, and a large archive of sold clocks. For more information, please click on any of these links highlighted above.
