It is almost impossible to state values of these lantern clocks, as not only do prices tend to appreciate, but so much depends upon quality, original state, size (miniature lantern clocks up to 9 ins. in total height are valuable), and points which make examples rare. Thus a clock with its original balance intact, and otherwise of good quality, is easily worth 8o to 100; the same clock with a pendulum, - especially if it be a short one, - would be dear at 25. The tiny East clock (it is only 8 ins. high to the top of its spire) with its engraved and gilt case, and eight-day duration, would realise as much as 200 at a Christie auction.

At the other extreme, a common late clock is worthless; a few shillings even may be thrown away on it. To the clock collector, and indeed to the collector of furniture in its widest sense, three items of advice may be useful. These are : (1) Don't be in a hurry. (2) Don't begrudge a good price if the article be really fine. (3) Don't buy rubbish at any price. A fourth caution might be added, namely, to acquire the requisite knowledge before commencing to collect, but this should have been put at the beginning of this chapter rather than at its conclusion.
