Restoration projects

French lantern clock

We’ve bought a French lantern clock signed ‘Amourette Abbeville’. This early 18th century clock is in good condition. Abbeville was, besides Paris, the most important place where lantern clocks were produced in the 17th and 18th century.

The alarm clock lacks some parts, but we’re going to construct it just the way it once was.

English lantern

This early lantern, made around 1660, is a very beautiful piece in the English lantern history. Back then, at the end of the 17th century, when the pendulum was made, this lantern was adapted to a long, more consistent pendulum. We will restore this lantern to its former glory and give it back the balance it originally had.
