The Rockwood family Federal mahogany antique tall case clock by William Cummens, Roxbury, Massachusetts, circa 1811.
This exceptional antique tall case clock by William Cummens is accompanied by a single family provenance originating in 1811. The clock descended directly in the Rockwood family until being acquired from the family recently. This handsome clock case retains a rich old surface that is likely the original finish. Tall case clocks with surfaces in this condition are exceedingly rare and highly prized by collectors. The case form is a fine example of the formal Roxbury case clocks being produced in Boston during the first decade of the 19th Century. The brass movement is of eight day duration and is in fine running condition.
