An important Chippendale cherry antique tall case clock, the movement attributed to John Bailey II, Hanover, circa 1785. The case attributed to Elisha Cushing Jr. Hingham.

This distinctive cherry antique tall case clock by John Bailey II exhibits many characteristics associated with furniture produced in the New London, Connecticut area. However, recent discoveries and related scholarship have reassigned this piece and a group of very similar furniture to Hingham, Massachusetts cabinetmaker Elisha Cushing Jr. (1746-1829). The cabinetmaker Theodore Cushing of Hingham is discussed in an article in The Magazine Antiques, May 2009. The case houses a movement closely associated with the work of John Bailey Jr. II (1751-1823), the foremost member of the renown group of Quaker clockmakers from Hanover, Massachusetts. This antique tall case clock and a matching tall chest was discovered recently and are offered here together as a suite. It is truly a unique instance for a matching tall chest and tall case clock by a document cabinetmaker to be available. This tall case clock was exhibited at the Nantucket Whaling Museum, Summer-Fall 2009 in the show relating to Harbor & Home, Furniture of Southeastern Mass.
