An important Federal mahogany tall case clock. The impressive case attributed to Wood & Taylor, Florida, New York, circa 1811.
This extraordinary antique tall case clock with lavish inlay and flawless proportions ranks as one of the most handsome examples of formal Hepplewhite cases produced in America. The case is one of a group produced by the partnership of New York cabinetmakers Robert Wood and Jacob Taylor, who fled the island of Manhattan during a smallpox outbreak and settled in the rural community of Florida, New York shortly after 1810. Two other cases with very similar inlaid decorations, including their signature star-decorated tympanums, bear labels of “Wood & Taylor, Florida”.
Height including center finial: 92 ¾”; Width: 20 ⅛"; Depth: 9 ½"
