An important mahogany tall case clock by Aaron Willard, Boston, circa 1800. This classic example of a formal Roxbury case features brass stop fluted columns and ogee bracket feet. The painted iron dial which has a moon phase in the lunette, is attributed to the Boston dial painting partnership of Willard & Nolan (Aaron Willard & Spencer Nolen). The dial is signed on either side of the center arbor "Aaron Willard". The precision brass eight day movement is distinguished by having both a dead beat escapement and maintaining power. These very rare features in addition to the fine old surface and exceptional original condition make this an important example of an Aaron Willard tall clock. Height 102" Width 20 1/4".
