John Webb lantern clock

An early eighteenth century english lantern clock by the London maker John Webb with later single-fusee movement. The high-quality 8-day single-fusee movement with passing strike makes the clock freestanding and free from chains or rope and pendulum.

The frame is of standard lantern clock construction with strapped bell over urn finials and three cast crossed dolphin frets, supported on tapering Doric columns to ball feet. The chapter ring with engraved Roman numerals, the dial plate centre engraved with maker's name "Jn. Webb, London".

The clock keeps excellent time, with passing strike on the original lantern bell. The movement has just undergone a total overhaul to a very high standard including servicing of pinions and bushes where required. The movement has been fully cleaned and polished.

This clock was formerly exhibited at a European museum.

The clock having 5 3/4" square frame, 6" diameter chapter ring of 1 1/4" width. The clock stands 14 1/2" high.
