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.
