An extremely rare antique mahogany tall case clock, by Reuben Tower, Hingham, Mass, circa 1820.
This wonderful antique tall clock is the only known example of a tall case clock by the prolific Quaker clockmaker Reuben Tower, renowned for making dwarf clocks. The case, which, is in wonderful original condition with a pleasing old surface and delicate regional fret, is attributed to Weymouth cabinetmaker Abiel White. The iron dial is a terrific Boston example with a beautifully detailed lakeside cottage scene in the lunette and signed below the center arbor "Reuben Tower / HINGHAM". The clock has a vibrantly figured mahogany case resting upon delicate bracket feet. The brass movement is of eight day duration and is in fine running condition.
