The exuberant carving of this long case clock must be closely examined to be fully appreciated! Sculptors rendered old-growth French white oak into a variety of classical themes, including a flower basket atop a boldly molded, arched crown, floral & laurel garlands, and copious spiral ribbon molding. The tin and brass embossed dial face stands tall to command the room and announce the passage of time. Brass hinges and latches add a nice touch, while the mitered corners with corbels on top and carvings below provide incredible architectural presence.
Circa 1870s.
