A handsome mahogany antique tall case clock, attributed to John Bailey Jr. (III) Hanover, Massachusetts, circa 1820.
This very fine diminutive mahogany and inlaid tall case clock, attributed to John Bailey Jr (1787-1883), Hingham, Massachusetts, circa 1810. John Jr. (III) was a leading member of the renowned group of Quaker clockmakers from Hanover and Hingham, Massachusetts.
This nicely proportioned case, with choice mahogany and finely detailed inlay, is attributed to Weymouth cabinetmaker Abiel White. The case, which is just over seven feet, houses a finely painted dial which features a moon phase disk in the lunette. The moon disk has wonderfully painted scenes, one of a riverside cottage with a village on the distant bank and the other of a frigate at full sail. The pendulum door and base panel each have cross-banded edges framing a contrasting inlaid geometric border. The case has a pleasing mellow surface and rests on flared French feet.
