Notes:
Before describing a number of Tompion clocks in America, the author argues that the interest in Tompion's work (and other great English clockmakers) now shown by American collectors began as a result of the sale of the Wetherfield Collection in 1928 when over 100 clocks were sold to Americans, 10 by Tompion. 8 Tompion clocks are described and illustrated. Photographs of Tompion clocks as follows: 1. Brass lantern clock, c.1675 1. Ebonised bracket clock with repeat, c.1705 3. Ebonised bracket clock, c.1700 4. Walnut longcase clock 5. Walnut longcase clock
