This tall Case was built as a reproduction of a clock built by Aaron Willard in Roxbury or Boston ca.1805. The original clock upon which my reproduction was based, was featured in a Christie's auction in September 2008.
The original clock was made from mahogany with a rosewood banding. This reproduction was made from a matched set of highly figured curly maple with inlays of Gabon ebony. The hardware for the clock was obtained from Londonderry Brasses and the glass is from Bendheim.
This clock features a reproduction works by David Lindow with a hand painted dial by Kathi Edwards. The clock works shown include a rocking ship, a date wheel and a second hand.
