ORIGINAL 1920s TRADE - ADVERTISING CARD A LANTERN CLOCK by THOMAS TOMPION Thomas Tompion will always be revered as the father of English Clockmaking. He was born in 1638, and was buried in Westminster Abbey in 1713, an honour shared by his apprentice, George Graham, and never since attained by any other: member of the profession. This brass lantern or Cromwellian clock is a fine example of his earlier work, before the introduction of the pendulum or minute hand, neither of which are to be found in English clocks until after 1660. Clocks of this type, with their original verge escapement are very rare. A Most of those which have survived were converted into pendulum clock, but the evidence of such treatment always remains and is a proof of antiquity.
