Auctions have been rare things since the start of lockdown but one clock caught my eye - a rather sweet early 18th C lantern clock by John Buffet of Colchester. The engraved side doors look original but the finial on top clearly isn't and the bell may not be. The hand looks wrong too, but a nice thing nevertheless. After much deliberation I decided not to put in a bid, not because I didn't like it but because I need to focus my time and attention on the many unfinished projects I already have on the go.
