Lantern Clock, Griffin Rayment,
Bury, St. Edmunds, Suffolk,
Prolific Clock Making Family Griffin (1722-1769)
was son of Son of the famous Richard Rayment (1686-1754) 30-hour rope driven, circa 1730-1760


Lantern Clock, Griffin Rayment,



Bury, St. Edmunds, Suffolk,

Haggar and Miller, Suffolk Clocks and Clockmakers, reported that no Griffin or Giffin lantern clocks are known to be extant; by the late 1750s the demand for this type of clock had waned in favor of longcase clocks.
This is likely the only example extant.

Posted by David Addy: “I received emails from Marc Honcoop containing pictures of a clock which he owns. "I live in the Netherlands. I have a Lantern clock of Giffin Rayment. This is the only one he made.... The clock is all original with no signs of restoration. The clock was bought about 40 years ago for fl.15,000 gulden. That was a lot of money for those years. I don't know the date the clock was made.” Possibly Rayment made the clock with his father about 1730-1740, but I think the clock is younger at about 1760."

Giffin Rayment died in January 1769, and he was buried at St James's church on January 24th. His widow Esther was granted Administration as he had not yet made a will, being only 47 years old.

Massachusetts Shelf Clock, Aaron Willard, Boston, Massachusetts (1757 to 1844)
Circa 1825, Mahogany, mahogany veneer and white pine
Painted on the dish dial; Robert Gould Shaw - SOLD


Antique Massachusetts Shelf Clock by Aaron Willard, Circa 1825, angle view

The case with shaped crest and original brass eagle finial over the upper Eglomise panel inscribed "Aaron Willard/Boston" within elliptical reserve; in front of the dished dial having a white painted face is the original Eglomise plate decorated with American shields and oak leaf motif. The lower case with central mirrored medallion is said to have been enameled black by a family mourning the death of Robert Gould Shaw in 1863. The case containing a weight driven, brass eight-day movement is often referred to as a "dish dial" shelf clock.

The case, made of the best mahogany, retains its original surface with a rich, warm patina; and continues to a cushion molded base resting on turned brass feet. The case is die stamped on the dust board “619", a very identifiable detail commonly found in Boston timepieces whose cases were made by Henry Willard, Aaron Willard Juniors brother-who worked within the Willard clock-making compound at Boston.

The dial, hands, pendulum; winding crank and movement are all original with the surface of the dial remaining in very good condition with only minor, as expected losses. We cannot read the lettering on left side of hands; on the right, clearly inscribed is the name “Robert Gould Shaw”. The movement is complete, and in excellent condition. (Loss of scroll to crest which we are able to expertly restore; H: 36”)

We have other information related to purported provenance which at this time is supposition. Please call for additional information.

Banjo Clock, Willard

Aaron Willard Jr.

Boston, Massachusetts

Circa 1825, entire view

This attractive banjo clock features a rare alarm movement with outside bell mounted at the crest. The frames each contain magnificent original painted glass tablets in exceptional condition. The throat glass is exceptional with outstanding and important foliate and scroll motif with fanciful flourishes above a basket of fruit and the word "patent: within a scroll festooned with Rocco style decoration...the red, gold, blue and sepia decoration is all the more forceful against the mustard ground. The lower glass is decorated with the deity Aurora driving a team of winged horses, within a gilt border against the conforming mustard ground. Note the definition of Aurora's face and the incredible detail of the chariot as related to color and fancy ornamentation. The chariot is positioned before a powerful explosion of light rays and roiling clouds as it floats on ethereal clouds that ground the composition.

The movement is signed with a die stamp at the upper right on the front plate "A. Willard Jr / Boston". Very few movements are signed. The case retains a dry surface with fine old patina. Height Overall 32 1/8"

The original brass movement has been serviced and is in good running order. The alarm mechanism has been expertly restored. The alarm hand and weight are replaced with exact copies from original examples. The bell is period but not original to this clock. The original dial has restoration to the infield.
