A fine 18th century lantern clock, the 24 hour duration movement with anchor escapement and long pendulum. It retains its original outside countwheel strike on a single bell and the 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, hanging hoop and spurs are also old.

Height: 14 ½ in (37 cm) incl. finial

*Thomas Grimwade is listed on page 232 of 'Clockmakers of Britain 1286-1700' by Brian Loomes as working in Suffolk in the second quarter of the 18th century

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