This attractive"Massachusetts" shelf clock has a bell and fret crest above a distinctive lunette inlaid cornice. This demi-lune inlay is a pattern that is closely associated with the work of noted Boston cabinetmakers, John & Thomas Seymour. The painted kidney dial has a fine urn and garland decoration. The painted iron dial is American and of local origin from the Willard & Nolen shop in Boston. The base has a highly figured mahogany panel with a rosewood cross banded border above a shaped apron and flared French feet. The brass eight day timepiece has been professionally overhauled and the clock runs perfectly and keeps great time. It is powered by it's original cast lead weight. Coupled to the works are a pair of exceptional barbed steel hands typical of the early Willard school clockmakers.
