lantern clock by John Fraser of Worcester lantern clock by Thomas Tue of King's Lynn, Norfolk, dated 5th December 1663 miniature gentleman's travelling alarm clock or pantry clock made about 1750 by Samuel Toulmin of London Lantern clock with original alarmwork by Thomas Moore, one of his very earliest clocks made about 1715

John Fraser (sometimes Frazer or Frasor) was one of the earliest clockmakers to work in the city of Worcester and one of the earliest by whom any work is known to survive. He has been described as 'probably the finest of Worcestershire's clockmakers'. He was born in London in 1667, and apprenticed there in 1681 to 1688 to Edward Eyston of the Clockmakers' Company, but never took up his freedom there. He set up in business in Worcester shortly after 1688 and worked till about 1700. This present lantern clock is signed 'John Frasser Worcester'. One other lantern clock is recorded by this maker, signed 'John Frazor Worcester'. At least one bracket clock and one longcase clock are known.

This clock was made as a verge pendulum probably before 1690 and converted early in its life to anchor escapement. It appears to be original throughout with the exception of the side doors and frets, which are ancient but probably replacements. The original hanging hoop is present but the spikes are missing. The original top finial is probably broken short. Height 13 1/2 inches. See article. SOLD.
