An exceptionally handsome, rare and unusually large lantern clock (almost 18 inches) by the highly-regarded clockmaker, Lawrence Debnam of Frome in Somerset, who was working from 1675, perhaps as early as 1665, and died in March 1684. This clock was made in the 1670s with a short verge pendulum, converted not long after to anchor with a perhaps uniquely long experimental pendulum five feet long. The spectacular frame is in the very finest West Country tradition. SOLD.

Lantern clock of about 1695 made by Joseph Norris of Abingdon, Berkshire, (born 1650, died 1727), converted in the late 19th century to a double fusee chain drive movement. He was a prestigious maker who, after training in London, spent most of his working life in Holland, where he is believed to have been one of the first to introduce the longcase clock. He returned to his home town about 1692. Only a handful of lantern clocks are known by him, and this is one of only four known to be signed at Abingdon. Pictured after restoration. SOLD.
