A very fine mahogany Roxbury case tall clock, by Aaron Willard, circa 1820.
This outstanding tall case clock retains a wonderful warm old surface with vibrant mahogany panels and contrasting inlay. The hood is set with a very delicately scrolled fret. The finely painted iron dial is of Boston origin and features patriotic shield form spandrels and a lunette painted with the rare image of a pair of blue birds. The dial is signed below the calendar, "Aaron Willard / Washington Street / BOSTON". The clock rests upon delicate flared French feet.
