A fine early Federal mahogany and eglomisé antique patent time piece, by Simon Willard, Roxbury, Massachusetts, circa 1805.

This handsome clock is among the first generation of these antique patent time pieces produced by the innovative clockmaker Simon Willard [1753-1858] of Roxbury, Massachusetts. This successful form was patented by Willard in 1802 as the “Improved Timepiece” but is more commonly referred to as a “banjo” clock. Examples like this, with cross-banded frames and understated geometric eglomisé panels, were made in the shops of Simon Willard during the first years of his patent. Although numerous fine examples of patent time pieces we made by his apprentices over the next twenty-five years, these rare, early examples are the most prized. This clock is in fine original condition and retains an original fire gilt cast brass eagle finial. This lower panel is inscribed in gilt lettering, above and below the cross-hatched oculus, “S. Willard’s / Patent.”. The tapered lead weight with “duck bill” hook and steel pendulum rod with brass-capped bob are original to the clock.

Dimensions

Height with finial: 39”; Width 10”; Depth 3 1/2”
