An exceptionally unusual unsigned lantern clock of high quality dating from about 1660, clearly made in London, originally with balance wheel regulator but converted within a very few years to verge pendulum. The pendulum was fitted at the side, something very rarely seen, probably to permit retention of the alarmwork (which was later removed anyway). The manner of the conversion as well as the addition of a second hammer to strike half hours (very much a feature of French clocks), strongly suggests the clock was converted to pendulum in France. Conversions from balance wheel to verge pendulum were usually done in the third quarter of the seventeenth century, are very uncommon and are highly sought after today. Fully cleaned and serviced.
