A classic lantern clock of about 1685 by William Newton of East Smithfield, London, former apprentice of Edward Stanton, made with short verge pendulum and modified later (probably in mainland Europe) to anchor escapement with long pendulum and hanging French-type suspension.  This is the only lantern clock yet recorded by this maker, who is known to have been working for a period of only about three years.
