An exceptional labeled mahogany tall case clock by Aaron Willard Junior, Boston, circa 1805.
This terrific example of a formal Roxbury case features choice inlays and the finest figured mahogany all in a diminutive size, at less than seven and a half feet. This case is one of only three examples to bear Aaron Junior's personal label, all other labels are his father's, altered with a hand written "Junior". This beautifully executed case has a white painted dial mat with gilt piping, which identifies it as a brides model. This mat frames a wonderfully painted dial with a detailed moon phase disk. The dial is dramatically signed below the center arbor "Aaron Willard Junr / Boston".
