This also has two trains, but they are driven by a single weight and a tiny counterweight to keep the rope taut.

This movement was developed from a wall hanging clock called a lantern clock. These movements are rare. Marquetry can be minor decorations like shells of fans, or could cover the whole clock from the hood to the base.

Grandfather clocks, also called longcase clocks by horologists, were invented after Dutchman Christiaan Huygens applied a pendulum as a clock-winding device in But it wasn’t until about when clockmakers mastered the workings of the pendulum for accurate timekeeping in conjunction with an anchor escapement — the mechanical device that gives a pendulum its swing.
