A fine Cromwellian period lantern clock by ‘Samuell Davis at London in Lothbury Fecit’, as he signed his clocks. It was made in the 1650s with balance wheel control, converted later to anchor escapement and long pendulum. He was born about 1626 and trained under William Selwood from 1641 till 1648. He worked at the sign of the Golden Ball in Lothbury till the premises were destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666. He then moved to the east to work in St. Katherine Creechurch parish, and he died about 1684. This is one of only three lantern clocks so far documented by him. One of the weights is a Civil War cannonball! Cleaned and serviced. SOLD.

Fine and rare lantern clock made in York by William Raynes A handsome lantern clock made about 1720 by Thomas Gullven of Horsmonden in Kent Clock made about 1660 by John Dennis of Maidstone  

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.

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. Awaiting restoration.
