Fine and rare lantern clock made in York by William Raynes lantern clock made about 1710 by John Risbridger of Brentford, Middlesex Fine early lantern clock made about 1660 by Robert Cosbey of London

A very fine and rare lantern clock made in York by William Raynes. Lantern clocks made in York are very few in number, only seven being recorded altogether by all known York clockmakers. Raynes was born about 1640, trained in London under William Almond through the Clockmakers' Company, was freed in 1669 and worked initially in Butcher's Row, East Smithfield. He left London some time after 1672 and worked in York, where he became a freeman in 1687. His brother, Thomas, was Lord Mayor of York in 1688. He died in 1695 after a fall from his horse. Only two other lantern clocks are known made by him in York. This is the only one with original anchor escapement. Now cleaned and serviced.

Clock made about 1660 by John Dennis of Maidstone Lantern clock made in the 1670s  by 'Edward Norris at ye Cross Keys in Cateaton Streete'  

This clock, made about 1660 by John Dennis of Maidstone with balance control and converted soon after to long pendulum, is by far the oldest surviving clock not only from Maidstone but from the entire county of Kent. It is the only clock known by John Dennis, a previously unrecorded member of the Dennis family of locksmiths, and the only clock known from that family. John was born in 1633, married in 1659 and died in 1672. Now cleaned and serviced. See article.

A superb lantern clock made in the 1670s by ‘Edward Norris at ye Cross Keys in Cateaton Streete fecit’ with re-converted balance control. He was apprenticed 1650 to William Selwood, but completed his training under Thomas Loomes as part of the Fromanteel concern, working independently from about 1660. He married the daughter of much older Selwood apprentice, Thomas Knifton, whose trading symbol he took as his own. Knifton’s premises were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, and he died soon after at Norris’s home. Norris became Master of the Clockmakers’ Company in 1687 and died in 1707. He made almost exclusively lantern clocks with traditional balance escapements, of which only half a dozen are known today, only two from his Cateaton premises.
