GEORGE CLARKE. A good 18th century London Third period lantern clock

Offered by Howard Walwyn
Date & Origin c. 1760, Whitechappel Fecit London
Dimensions
Description
A good 18th century London Third period lantern clock, the 24 hour duration movement with original anchor escapement and long pendulum. It retains its original outside countwheel hour strike on a single bell and the well patinated brass case has turned pillars and entwined dolphin frets.

The attractive dial is engraved with interlacing foliage and the maker’s name is engraved below XII. The finely cut single steel hand is probably original and the side doors and hanging hoop are also old.

Height: 15 in (38 cm) incl. finial

*George Clarke is listed on page 154 of 'Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition' by Brian Loomes as working in Whitechappel in the third quarter of the 18th century

It is increasingly hard to find good 18th century lantern clocks in such an original state.
