An important Chippendale mahogany antique tall case clock by Gawen Brown, Boston, Massachusetts, circa 1760.
This very rare walnut antique tall case clock by Gawen Brown retains a wonderful historic surface with a rich brown color. The molded hood has an original raised sarcophagus top, mounted with a central plinth and a wonderfully engraved composite brass dial with pierced Rococo corner spandrels and moon phase disk. The moon disk has engraved moon faces opposite fields of gold painted stars on a blue background. The moon disk is bordered with scrolled hemispheres at the base and at the top with an engraved silver arch decorated with a linked chain motif. The dial is handsomely signed on three lines with the makers name and address in an arched cartouche below the center arbor; "Gawen Brown / Brattle St. / Boston". The brass movement of this antique tall clock is of eight day duration and is in fine running condition.
