A wonderful cherry wood Hepplewhite tall case clock, signed by the case maker ""PittWait / Cabinet & Chairmaker"", with clock works attributed to Luther Smith, Keene, New Hampshire, circa 1815.
The nicely proportioned case of this antique New Hampshire tall clock has a mellow surface with a rich old color and features subtle line inlaid borders and diamonds in the door and base panel. The interior of the backboard is boldly signed with elaborate chalk letters "PittWait / Cabinet & Chairmaker". The painted iron dial has richly painted corner spandrels with large rose blossoms and the lunette has a detailed woodland scene of a hunting dog flushing a hare from cover. The brass eight day movement has distinctive characteristics, closely associate it with the work of clockmaker Luther Smith of Keene, New Hampshire. The brass movement is of eight day duration and is in fine running condition.
