Lantern Clock by Daniell Weeb


c. 1677 with later Japy Freres movement
Daniell Weeb lantern clock

A highly decorative lantern clock by Daniell Weeb, a previously unrecorded maker.

The engraving is in the style of a second period lantern clock although the dial plate is signed by the maker and dated "annodom 1677".

The frets are traditional cross-dolphin frets but the engraver has totally ignored the traditional way of engraving cross-dolphin frets and covered them in a very elaborate floral pattern. This pattern continues on the front dial plate and on the alarm disc. Close inspection reveals hidden faces and various creatures.

The Japy Freres Victorian spring-driven movement counts the hours with single hammer striking the bell and with a single strike on the half hour. The bell strap clips around the finials in a first period style.

The clock having 5 1/2" square frame, 6" diameter chapter ring of 1" width and finely engraved 6 1/4" high dial plate. The clock stands 14" high.
