English Lantern Clock by John Gibson of Ongar Essex England
English Lantern Clock by John Gibson of Ongar Essex England


This is only clock yet documented by a previously virtually unknown clockmaker, made around 1695.
John Gibson is a very common name but fortunately not at this period in this region, Ongar, Essex. It was authenticated by the discovery of his will. For a will to survive to clinch his trade as a clockmaker was doubly lucky. Most never left any will.
