Footnotes

  • Little is known of Daniel Robinson apart from a surviving bracket clock and several longcases.
    There are no other examples of his lantern clocks mentioned in the standard literature, but a miniature eight day lantern clock by Edward East illustrated in Cescinsky and Webster's 'English Domestic Clocks' Antique Collectors' Club, 1976 edition, figure 35, page 60, shares some similar features including the proportions (if not the design) of the front fret and the distinctive bell strap with one pierced tine.
