Crown escape wheel

 This clock has a Foliot escapement with a crown escape wheel.  Information we have obtained, indicates that the clock was made between 1480 and 1520 about 150 years before the pendulum was invented. It is time and strike. It is keyed together at the joints. The clock is wrought iron and would have been made in a blacksmith shop. It is working but has not been fully restored.  There are indications that it might be the oldest tower clock in the U.S.  It is on display at our shop with the Circa 1700 French Turret clock.   Click Here
