Dutch Domestic Clocks of English Signature (1675-1750)


SKU: MN001 Category:


In 2004 the Museum of Dutch Clocks organized the exhibition “Dutch Domestic Clocks with an English Signature (1675-1750)”. The Hague clock was created in The Hague from 1657, following the invention of the pendulum clock by Christiaan Huygens. Partly due to Huygens’ personal contacts with the scientific circles around the courts in England and France, the invention was quickly imitated abroad. This is how the “Pendule Religieuse” is created in France. Ahasuerus Fromanteel introduces the pendulum clock in London in October 1658. This creates the characteristic English “bracket clock”. It will dominate the European market well into the 19th century.
