Highlights of the “12 Lewes Clocks” exhibition include a rare 8 day longcase clock by the eminent clockmaker Richard Comber, the son of a barber in Cliffe Lewes. He was a maker who was highly respected during his lifetime and his clocks are still avidly sought by collectors today. Comber was apprenticed to William Kemp, a clockmaker who worked in Lewes for over 40 years, taking on eight apprentices and thereby embedding himself in the fabric of the town. The exhibition includes a fine 30 hour longcase clock by him from c.1770.
A limited amount of catalogues from our lantern clock exhibition are still available.
‘The exhibition’ was the second exhibition of early domestic C17th Lantern clocks we have held, which spanned the years of 1600-1700. It was a unique opportunity to see some of the earliest English Lantern clocks ever assembled in one place. These were sourced from private collectors and our own collection.
