An exceptionally rare Chippendale mahogany and inlaid antique brass dial shelf clock, by Caleb Leach, Plymouth, Massachusetts, circa 1785.

This impressive antique brass dial shelf clock, with a formal Chippendale case, is one of only three shelf clocks known to have been produced by the rare clockmaker, Caleb Leach (at work in Plymouth circa 1776-1790). This stylish case with stop fluting, pattern inlay, dentil moldings and ogee feet, emulates the high-style “Roxbury” tall case clocks being produced in Boston during this period. This innovative early example of a Massachusetts shelf clock, which predates all other examples from this region, is fitted with a sophisticated fully striking brass movement and a brass dial with a silvered moon phase disk. The exclusive rarity of this clockmaker combined with the superior qualities of the case and movement define this clock as a prized example of American clock making. The removable upper section or hood has a three rectangular chimneys each mounted with full-sized brass ball and spire finials. These chimneys flank a scrolled splat with a regional whales tail pattern. The brass dial is engraved within the calendar dial with the makers name and locale, “Leach / PLYMOUTH”. The base terminates with a molded apron above four bulbous ogee feet.
