lantern clock of about 1685 by William Newton of East Smithfield, London Lantern clock made about 1680 by Baldwin Potter of Stockport, Cheshire A hook-and-spike wall clock of about 1770 by Benjamin Lamprey of Brackley, Northamptonshire

A classic lantern clock of about 1685 by William Newton of East Smithfield, London, former apprentice of Edward Stanton, made with short verge pendulum and modified later (probably in mainland Europe) to anchor escapement with long pendulum and hanging French-type suspension.  This is the only lantern clock yet recorded by this maker, who is known to have been working for a period of only about three years.

A most interesting lantern clock made about 1680 with centre verge pendulum by Baldwin Potter of Stockport, Cheshire, the only clock yet recorded by this maker and the only lantern clock known from Stockport. Until this clock was discovered the maker's origins were unknown but he was known to have moved to work as a clockmaker in Belturbet in County Cavan in Ireland some time before 1699 and is believed to have died there about 1733. In 1739 his son, Baldwin Potter junior, was sentenced to transportation for seven years for counterfeiting. Only one other clockmaker in Ireland is known to have made lantern clocks - Ezekiel Bullock of Lurgan. Now restored.

Lantern clock made in the 1650s by Thomas Knifton of Lothbury Queen Anne period lantern clock made by John Aylward in Guildford Lantern clock made about 1680 by the renowned Edward Stanton of London

A fine, handsome lantern clock made in the 1650s by the celebrated Thomas Knifton, one of the earliest London makers. He was born in Nottingham in 1614, in 1632 was the first apprentice of William Selwood till 1640, and worked in Lothbury surviving the Great Plague and the Fire of London and died there in January 1667. This is one of his earliest clocks and an early conversion from balance to verge pendulum, perhaps converted as early as the 1670s, the conversion believed to have been done when the clock was in Italy. Recently repatriated from the USA. Now fully restored.

An interesting Queen Anne period lantern clock made in the first years of the eighteenth century by John Aylward, the first clockmaker to work in Guildford. He was born about 1640 or earlier and was working at Brentford by about 1660, then at Guildford from about1683. Tradition says that as a stranger he was refused permission to trade at Guildford. He therefore built a turret clock at his own expense and presented it to the town in 1683. They promptly set it up overhanging the street on the new Guildhall, where it is to this day and gave him freedom to trade there. In 1691 he entered into 'an agreement with the churchwardens of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, to erect a new clock and chimes and maintain it free of charge for thirty one years in return for a lease of two cottages at Green End, Aylesbury, known as the Clock and Chimes estate'. He perhaps put Guildford on some of his clocks because of his right to trade there. He was described later in life as a 'gentleman' and died in 1707. This clock was built with a verge escapement and short pendulum and was modified later to anchor escapement and long pendulum and at the same time altered to two hands. Now restored.

A handsome English Civil War period lantern clock (about 1650) ‘modernised’ about thirty years later by Giles Lumbard of Ilminster in Somerset, a maker previously unrecorded, who replaced the dial with his own and probably converted the escapement to long pendulum at the same time. He was working from 1665 and is believed to have died in 1707. Awaiting servicing.
