Peter Closon Lantern Clock Article

My study attributing a full sized London lantern clock (as surfaced - DEC 2009) as a product from the workshops of Peter Closon – ‘Neer Holburn Bridge’ London’, a prolific maker of these clocks from 1625-1660 in the Lothbury clockmakers’ district in London. The clock was sold on to a customer unrestored.

A lifetime of interest and experience... NAWCC# 71355 since 1975


I've been involved with antique clock restoration since a teenager in the 1970s, spending summers working with my uncle in Clerkenwell London learning horological skills.  My father was a trained English cabinetmaker from whom I learned case work.  During my undergraduate years at Michigan State University and throughout my commercial scientific career, I remained active in the restoration and trading of earlier antique clocks. In 1984 I established a modest shopfront trade partnership on the Boston North Shore, relocating to the UK in 2003. during my professional life I'd been lucky to have been involved with art history conservation projects with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yale Museum of British Art, and other important museums.   A member of the National Association of Clock Collectors for over 30 years, I've taken part in numerous technical, historical, an conservation seminars. 

I look forward to assisting the collector however I can.
