We undertake restoration for customers from all over the country.

Lantern clocks

We have always specialised in good early Lantern clocks from the early 17thC pre-pendulum era right through to the end of the century. We have held two Catalogued Exhibitions of some truly exceptional pieces over the last 15 years. A few of these catalogues are still available to purchase from the shop.                                                     We also have a few good examples of Early Lantern clocks on display which are not on our website, so do phone us for details.                                                                             Conservation work on Lantern clocks is also undertaken for customers, many of whom come from all over the world.
