Johannes Pye Verge Lantern clock, Ca 1675.

An interesting Anglo Dutch Verge Lantern clock with front swinging verge in original condition. The use of the verge (in general a continental adoption) at the front does give a real sense of movement and of course made regulation easily accessible. The dial centre engraving is very well executed in a bold flowing style under  the attractive steel hand which is also nicely fettled.

Height 38cms.

Price. £7850. Circa. 1675
