Early American Flame Mahogany Tall Case Clock

This striking tall case clock is a wonderful example of early American clockmaking. Clocks and fine clockmakers were a precious luxury in early America, making specimens such as these a rarity. Beautiful veneer with rich flame mahogany medallions comprises the case with remarkable workmanship. The case takes on a classic and elegant shape with fluted columns and a graceful swan neck pediment top. Residing inside the bonnet of the clock is a hand-painted iron dial displaying the time on radial Arabic numerals with gold leaf accents. Further, this wonderful clock has a calendar, and the phases of the moon are depicted with wonderful hand-painted illustrations.

Based on the case and dial style, this clock is thought to have been crafted in Flemington, New Jersey, by a clockmaker of Irish descent.

A fully restored 8-day weight-driven movement strikes the hour and half-hour on a bell. This clock bears a full restoration and a one-year warranty.

7’11” High x 19″ Wide x 10″ Deep

Circa 1810
